Execution is the largest section of the test, accounting for 31 percent of questions. Sample topics include making sure that all work is compliant with pertinent quality controls and sourcing the raw materials needed for project completion. Monitoring and controlling account for 25 percent of the questions and include monitoring the ever-changing risk landscape.
