- [Voiceover] You have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The exercise files are in the Exercise Files folder. I've placed it on the desktop, but you can store it wherever you like. There are files for many movies. They reside in subfolders named according to the chapters. Some of the exercise files are sample project management documents. In addition to studying these files as you watch movies, you can use them as a basis for creating documents for your own projects.
Other exercise files are worksheets you can use as you view this course, to note important concepts or terms that you would like to remember. At times, I will encourage you to ask questions about a project you're currently working on or have worked on in the past. You can use the worksheets to record your answers to these questions. You can also use the My Notes feature on the website to add notes to any movie. You don't have to use these exercise files.
You can use files of your own. Are you ready to explore project management? Great, then let's get started.
