  Critical Path Forward Pass Calculation - Start at Zero or One?

One of the most frequently asked and hotly debated topics about Critical Path calculation by PMP aspirants is whether to start the forward pass calculation at Day Zero (0) or Day One (1). This has been a topic of debate on numerous forums and blogs, including this blog. But I've not seen a conclusive answer anywhere. The PMP exam prep guides and courses add to the confusion by following different approaches. Some authors prefer to start at zero, some start at one. Each approach yields different results.

While practically speaking, it may be a matter of choice, but from the exam point of view, there's only one correct approach. So, what is that correct approach? Should we start the forward pass calculation at zero or one? Today I'm going to answer that question for you, support it with evidence and put an end to this debate. So, are we ready to dive in?
