Hello Everyone,

I have a bit of an urgent question, I am taking the exam in 2 days on Wednesday.

Quick Background: I feel pretty prepared, went through a Joseph Phillips course on Udemy, reviewed Rita's guide in detail, constantly scoring 80%+ in pocket prep and have taken 2 complete practice exams here on prep cast with the first being 74% and the second 77% (made pretty many mistakes due to not reading the question as I was sick the last couple days - ugh). First attempt question scores on PrepCast all over 70% with the exception of 3 chapters that are very close to 70%.

I have been hearing many reports of people taking the exam recently that many agile questions have been on the exam - something that scares me a bit now. Especially as I can't just tell the simulator here to just show me agile question to check my knowledge.

Anyone have any insight into how much agile is on the CAPM and/or good resource that I can review in the next 48h just to make sure that I am on top of the agile methodologies? Or a list that I can just go through to see that I have covered everything agile at least once?

Thanks in advance!

G'day Max,

Anyone else out there, just in case I miss something, please weigh in as well.

Try under " www.pmi.org/certifications/types/certified-associate-capm " and look at the bottom-right section under "CAPM Exam Guidance". There are three items that might help, the Exam Content Outline, Sample Questions and the Handbook. It does appear that some Agile questions are asked. However, if the training was based on the 6th Edition of the PMBOK, I would think that they would have included that as well.

I did a quick search of the PMBOKGuideAgilePG.pdf that I had downloaded, when I was prepping to study the 6th Edition (waiting on the 7th now instead). It does have Agile references in it. This is in addition to the AgilePracticeGuide.pdf which is also available. I believe that you would only need what is in the former, the PMBOK. I compared some of the objectives to the content in the PMBOK using a search on the PDF to determine this.

I do hope this helps. If not, please feel free to repost and I will help as best I can. Or maybe someone else will weigh in on this too. For now at least, best of luck, sounds like you worked hard and "have this". .

Hello Linda,

Thank you for your response. I will make sure I have those covered. Just passed my 3rd practice exam at 83%, so I hope it will go well. Some final prep now and then you will (hopefully) see my lessons learned etc. on the other CAPM Exam Lessons Learned soon.

If anyone else has recent exam experience from CAPM and takeaways in regards to Agile, I would still be very appreciative!
