These questions are placed randomly throughout the exam. The test taker is only graded on their proficiency on 175 questions. The numbers in parentheses describe the percentage of questions for each domain.

Process Groups help you apply what knowledge you have about the different professional areas of project management. They enables a project manager to apply his knowledge and step, and teams through exactly what have to be done at each phase
