I have been preparing for ACP for quite some time and planning to give the actual ACP exam with a week or two. Below are the results in the four PrepCast simulators full tests and one full-length test in Head First Agile book.

PrepCast Test 1 - 76.5%
PrepCast Test 2 - 81%
PrepCast Test 3 - 73.5%
PrepCast Test 4 - 75%
Test in Head Agile Agile Book - 67.5%

I am not able to judge my readiness to appear in the real exam based on these scores. Could someone who has taken these tests and the real exam help me to get some understanding by assessing my readiness?

Hi Shubham,

I got similar scores before I took the exam and passed. It's hard to judge readiness but if youve done all the exercises in Head First, read it a couple of times, can answer the questions in each section and have used the exam simulator to understand why you get a question wrong there's not much more you can do.

Good luck.

Billy, Thank you for your inputs. I should have mentioned my preparation strategy in the original post. I used Mike Griffin's book and read it 2 times, made notes, went through its questions.
Gave Prepcast four tests and analyzed all questions. I used Head First Agile Book only for its full test. Although I feel like that I have covered a good amount of ACP material and prepared myself for "Agile Mindset",
I am still not able to score above 80% which is causing some confusion in my mind about my readiness.

And I agree with you that there's not much more I can do.

Thank you anyways!

Going with those results, to me, you are well prepared and to give finishing touches, revise all correct and incorrect questions in tests so you understand each concept and feed the agile mindset in your brain. I have one more post here after I passed the exam. You may want to check that out as well.

Hi Shubham, did you take the exam already? How did it go? I'm concerned about the score I got in the Head First practice test. I think I read a post before saying that the Head First question verbiage/format is somewhat closer to the real exam VS Prepcast.

Yes, I did pass the exam with all but one Above Target scores. My piece of advice would be to stick with four Prepcast tests as your primary study material. As long as you are able to get 70-80% range in these 4 tests including revisions of correct/incorrect questions, you should be in good shape. Material other than precast can be used to strengthen your concepts but don't rely on their score because some tests would be either too easy or too difficult .
