Risk and Risk response questions in PMP and RMP

Here is another question posted by one of the participant:



Hi Kavita... one more query...regarding Risk Response Plan. If I find a risk of missing deadline...and to avoid that I work extra time or hire few temp contractors to complete the work within deadline. So is this case of AVOID risk or ACCEPT risk? I did avoided the risk by adding more time/resources. However I also accepted that risk will occur and hence hired more people. From what I understand is ACCEPT is you don't take any action and wait for the risk to happen and use contingency plan. So in that case I accepted risk and my contingency plan was to hire more people. But at the same time AVOID risk says, take action and eliminate risk. So I eliminated risk by hiring people. just too much confusion :)
So what is the answer to above question?This is what I posted back..
A risk has some probability and some impact - I'm sure you know that.. Now lets understand the risk responses in detail: Accept - Do Nothing Avoid - Sele…

Critical Path Method (CPM) Simplified..

A critical path is the longest path in the network.  Each node which falls under critical path has zero or negative float (Slack).
Now how do we calculate critical path?? I’ve seen various illustrations having different way to calculate CPM, few are:
-The project starts on day 1. -The project starts on day 0.
Both the approaches give same results, however I liked the day 0 approach better, its simpler, easy and lesser room for errors.
Example
 There are 3 steps to calculate CPM: 1. Forward Pass - To calculate the Early Start(ES) and Early Finish(EF) of node. 2. Backward Pass - To calculate Late Start (LS) and Late Finish(LF) of node. 3. Calculate Float and Thus CPM.
The Forward Pass: We start from first Node or Start node. The works begin on day 0. 
We’ll fill up information in highlighted boxes:
In forward pass, we calculate the Early Start and early finish date of activities.
Node A: The activity starts on day zero, since A activity duration is for 5 days, the early finish…
