In this practice session you will create a series of task dependency links. Here you can create task dependencies by using the toolbar and the keyboard, the two methods you learned in the lesson. You will also have the opportunity to change the task dependency type from Finish-to-Start to Start-to-Start, and you will change a task duration to see how the link deals with that change.
