On the Practice Exam FORM 2, Case Study 1, the questions #53 and #54 seem to contradict each other.
Team 1 and team 2 are both working on the project. The project manager has evaluated the actual costs through the design development phase, which has just been completed.
Which of the following should the project manager consider, based on the state of the current budget?
Answer Q #53:
Replace the project manager on team 1
Correct. The project manager on team 1 is at the highest paid hourly rate and could be replaced with another project manager that is paid less.
The owner of the architectural firm is selecting a project team to submit as part of their request for proposal response.
Which of the following team members would be the best choice to manage the project?
Answer Q #54
Correct. Employee 6 has experience in office and restaurant design, which will be beneficial for the office and break room components of the project. Employee 6 is also the only project manager that has experience working with the owner.
The project manager on Team 1 is the Employee 6, which is the most qualified to manage the project.
Question #53 references the current budget after DD completion, but I wasn’t able to find that current budget. Also the answer to question #53 recommends replacing the PM with lower rate PM, but the only available option (EMPLOYEE 7 @$125/hr) doesn’t have the right type of experience (only experience in Education). Question #53 and its answer don’t make sense to me.
Could someone let me know what I am missing?
