PMI-ACP Study Material. What should I use?
What does everyone recommend for study material for PMI-ACP?

I've seen lots of recommendations for Mike Griffiths book, is this really the best study material? If so, why/why not?

Any help is appreciated!

Based on my experience as a candidate and as someone who is involved in Agile PM Training, I recommend the following:

Textbooks

1)PMI-ACP Exam Prep Book by Mike Griffiths (2nd Updated)
2)PMI Agile Practice Guide
3)PMI Exam Content Outline (ECO)

Courses / Simulation Exams

1) PM PrepCast: Good Simulation Exams
2) Watermark Learning: Good Simulation Exams
3)Udemy (Joseph Phillips): Great Course

Tips

1)Study both textbooks
2)Review ECO in details
3) Check Lessons Learned under my blog, link below:

Hope this helps - Good Luck.

This is perfect. Thank you so much for this detail! I've already ordered Mike's book. I've heard that's where I should start.

Did you find that one of these practice exams that you recommended were better than the others? I've heard there are a lot of scenario based questions on the exam, I want to make sure I am using practice exam questions that actually prepare me for the type of questions that I see on the exam

Thanks for sharing.
Eduhubspot.com also based on Mike Griffiths book.
But this is not the end of game. ( PMI-ACP questions might be very hard).

Thanks! I've heard the questions are really hard. Is there anything that helped you prepare for how hard these questions are? I've heard there are a lot of scenario based questions

You're welcome Jacob.

If you want my advice, purchase both (PM PrepCast and Watermark, the cost is very reasonable) and do as many simulations as you possibly can because it will prepare you well.
Make sure to read the rationale for all answers, not only the correct answer, as it will open your eyes to more things you should be vigilant about.

For me, the exam was mostly situational and tricky. You can easily eliminate two answer out of four but you need in depth knowledge to get to the most correct answer.

Let me know if you have further questions and Good Luck !
