Familiarize yourself with the knowledge area / process group matrix. That should be enough for your course. Also, Head First PMP - great book for PMP prep. Passed the first time.

For those that have been working with health systems on COVID testing, what have the isolation / quarantine protocols been after someone tests positive? The current CDC recommendations don't seem to match my current understanding. Current CDC recommendation: 10 days have passed since you had a positive test (asymptomatic). If symptomatic, 10 days since onset of symptoms, 24 hours since fever (no meds), and symptoms are "improving" Elsewhere: 14 days, or 10 days with 2 neg tests 24 hours apart.
