The Ultimate Study Guide for Microsoft Project 2019 is a complete learning experience and reference manual for the Microsoft Project 2019 desktop application. Our goal in authoring this book is to teach you how to use the software effectively to manage your projects.
We take a systematic approach to the topical ordering in this book, in which every module teaches you foundational skills by following the project life cycle. In these modules, you learn how to define a new project; plan your project with tasks, resources, and assignments, analyze the Critical Path, baseline your project, enter actual progress, analyze variance, revise your project, report about project progress, and then close the project.
Throughout this book, we provide a generous number of Information, Warning, and Best Practice notes. Information notes call your attention to important additional information about a subject. Warning notes help you avoid the most common problems experienced by others. Best Practice notes provide recommendations for best uses of the tool based on our years of field experience.
