What resources did you use to prepare for the PMP-ACP exam? Is it based on PMBOK 6th Edition duo? Did you use external exam simulators? Is there a book that you would like to recommend?

Please post any URL or name of the website/resource for Sample/Mock exam. Thanks in advance for all your help.

You need a lot of external exam simulators.

Any tips for those of us not on Facebook, please?

I am looking to sit for this exam myself within this quarter or the next.

Have followed Sante's blog article on the topic - but was wondering if there are any additional exam simulation resources.

I used the Mike Griffiths book, and did 2 simulation exams from Fastrack. Below you will find my PMI-ACP experience:

1. To obtain the required 21 contact hours in order to qualify for exam, I took the Udemy course from Joseph Phillips which is updated to PMBOK 6th Edition. Search CCRS for PMI Activity ID: PMIACP416 if your application is audited.

2. I bought ebook version of PMI-ACP Exam Study Guide (1st edition, 2018) by J Ashley Hunt, so that I can read anywhere on my phone or tablet. The textbook's Sybex publisher site also has practice exam tools free for one year.

3. I bought ebook version of PMI Agile Practice Guide (1st edition, 2017) because I prefer the flowing text on Google Playbooks than to read from PDF. It's only 182 pages.

4. I'm familiar with scrum master and scrum product owner topics so that helps in the background.

Joseph Phillips' 21hrs Udemy seminar is sufficient preparation, but I added J Ashley Hunt's textbook just to be doubly sure I understood the materials from two teachers.

Very useful information, I am also thinking for PMI ACP this will definitely help during preparations.

Fastrack and Prepcast were the only two I found (from the research) that are valid PMI-ACP exam simulators, meaning all the questions have a similar structure and content as the actual exam. Probably because both are created by well-known PMI expert contributors in Mike Griffiths and Cornelius Fichtner.

Narinder -

the current exam IS based on the current (Sixth) edition of the PMBOK Guide and may also reference content from the Agile Practice Guide. When I studied for it last summer, I used Andy Crowe's Pass the ACP book which includes two practice exams and actually found those to be tougher than the actual exam.

Good luck!

I found this to be a good resource: PMI - ACP and Scrum CSP Exam Prep by John Stenbeck

I have been reading this book which I really enjoy. I believe the author, mentioned above, helped write the PMI-ACP exams, too.
