Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Managing Actual Values in Microsoft Project.
- [Voiceover] If you're a premium member, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. You'll find these files in the Exercise Files folder, which I've placed on the desktop, but you can store it wherever you like. These files reside in subfolders named according to the chapters. You don't have to use these files. You can use files of your own. If you're a monthly or annual subscriber, you have access to free exercise files, where I've already set up tasks, resources, and assignments for you.
That way, you don't have to spend time creating those records. This course builds from movie to movie, so you can use these files to follow along. Let's get started.
Note: This course was designed in collaboration with author John Riopel. It will show how to use Project to implement the skills taught in Project Management Fundamentals, Managing Project Budgets, and Agile Project Management with Microsoft Project. You can follow along with Project 2010, 2013, or 2016, using the free or premium versions of the exercise files.
