In this practice you will create lag time and lead time for dependent tasks. You will also have a chance to add a task to the Project plan, so you can see how Project creates a default dependency link and automatically adjusts the overall schedule.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Project, a practice project will download to your computer and open in Project, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).

Note     You need to have Project 2003 installed on your computer.

Tips

  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or disappear when you click in Project, click the Project Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.
