    I think RL is making a return, I'm just concerned that she has not received the same transformation Renata and Lisette have experienced. She is going to have to stay in check some what because in this Project Management world she is needed. #ohboyweareintrouble #forthosewhoknowherpray

    "Once you have completed your study try the exam questions in the study group." How do I access these? I can't seem to find them in the study group.

    Paul Naybour Anthony

    The questions come from three places

    1) The study guide has questions at the end of each section.
    2) The APM have published a sample exam paper, you can get this from the APM website or our e-learning course. This is quite useful as these questions come up quite often in the real exams.
    3) The third source is to look at the assessment criteria in the syllabus and convert them into exam questions. I think we discuss this in the first podcast. So for example

    1.1 differentiate between types of organisation structures highlighting advantages and disadvantages of each (including functional, matrix, project)

    becomes

    Describe five advantages or disadvantages of a matrix organisation.

    So if you can answer questions of this form against all the syllabus then you should pass the exam.

    I also wondered, re your Archive Podcast on 'Governance' and the acronym; 'SADBET': this is not mentioned in my (very useful, lucid, and helpful!!) copy of the new APMP Study Guide. Again, would 'deployment' of SADBET in an APMP be deemed valid please?

    Paul Naybour Gordon SADBET is still relevant, but recent exam questions are looking for portfolio direction, sponsorship etc. as model answers.
