Hello Habbar: Good for you on planning to take your CAPM exam! I wish you success in reaching that goal. It is also good to ask others on this site about things you want to learn more about - everyone is great about supporting and helping! From what I have learned, agile project management is about doing things repeatedly to manage and build projects using proven principles, concepts and techniques. Communication is a big part of being agile as well. Agile also go along with LEAN techniques. Doing your work smarter, better and faster. Agile follows a project life cycle and goes along very well with CAPM and PMP training. There are lots of helpful webinars and information on this site to help you better understand and learn more about agile. Again - good luck with your exam!

Here is Sergio's comments from my PM Note Book I maintain -

"The worst thing to do is to agree that one simple term has a definition for each person. After working with some of the "fathers" of agile I have seen that they agree on "agile is a way of behaive and thinking with focus in value to the client and quality". When you use agile you gain in agility which is "the ability to react to environmental changes and create environmental changes". And what is not: agile is not software or IT related only, agile is not a method or methdology, agile is not a life cycle, agile did not start with the manifesto, agile is not uncompatible with PMI and others project management practices. See USA DoD NSF/Agility Forum deliverables (1990, I was part)."

If you look at how the various agile methodologies and frameworks are implemented, some common elements are iterative development, engaged "stakeholders" (often, but not always, called Product Owner), and delivering a minimum viable product as quickly as possible. They all roughly follow the agile manifesto (agilemanifesto.org), but they don't all interpret it the same, and some have additional principles beyond those described with the agile manifesto.

I'm not sure how much you'll need to know about Agile for the CAPM exam. If you want to learn more about Agile, there are several blogs and articles, here on projectmanagement.com, about it. Here are some other sites with information about Agile:
https://www.scrum.org/
https://www.scrumalliance.org/
https://www.agilealliance.org/
https://www.mountaingoatsoftware.com/

These resources which provided by @Aaron Porter are a great resource for you understanding Agile.
