Hi. Your plan is yours to follow. However, I doubt if you can build deep study momentum in 30 mins to 1 hour of study per day. Perhaps go for 2 hours at least. Cheers.
Hi Mike ! I'm also marathon runner . I tried to keep a sustainable pace of studying (1~1.5 hour per day) for studying. Mike Griffiths's book is my favourite book to pass the exam. And, please spend the last month before the real exam to practice sample exam questions and fill gaps.
The best plan is the one that works for you. You need to consider your available resources, restriction, and circumstances.
Michael, you should be very well prepared for it after that much work! I put under eight hours of studying into it by reading Andy Crowe's prep book and doing the practice questions and passed the exam within 45 minutes. The exam focuses a lot of understanding the application of the values & principles and from a method perspective, there are more Scrum-related questions than any other.
Thank you for this thread Michael and also to those with the book recommendations. Do you or anyone have any pointers on the best way to track and assert your experience for the application? I've been tracing the Agile Practice Guide and documenting use of the concept or tool as my project progresses. However, the application tracks in months and not hours as in the PMP process? Thank you to all.
As long as you went through Mike’s book and the PMI Agile Guide, and understood them properly then you should be fine.
I suggest you solve many simulation exams from resources like PM PrepCast to boost your confidence and adapt to the exam questions style because most of the exam is situational.
Thanks so much, everyone. Appreciate it.
Question about scheduling the exam. How often do they host PMI-ACP certification exams? Could I pay for it 2.5 months from now, and expect to register to sit for the exam within 2 weeks of that(i.e. take my exam 3 months from now, but not pay/register until 2.5 months from now).
It depends on the availability of testing centres if you are doing it in a centre but if you are doing it online, then from what I heard, there is no issue with availability.
To be on the safe side and given the current pandemic, I would give 1 month instead of 2 weeks.
Good Luck !
