Hello,

For the PMP-ACP prep-cast, do I need to purchase any additional materials besides what's provided by the prep-cast? I ask because when I did the PMP prep-cast 5 years ago I had to purchase the PMBOK guide.

Thanks,
Brad

Hello Brad, you will need the Agile Practice Guide, which is currently published alongside the PMBOK Guide (in the same volume). PMI members can access that for free. There are other recommended reading books for PMI-ACP but you might be able to get away without them... I'd be interested to know what other people think!

I did not purchase additional materials - I studied using the PrepCast and Exam Simulator.

I will note that I did not pass on my first attempt, but I passed 3 weeks after the failure. Over the course of those three weeks, I focused my full attention on the Exam Simulator through the Learning Quizzes on the Domains I needed improvement on. I cannot stress enough how helpful this was.

You gain knowledge via the PrepCast and the Exam Simulator, but you will only understand the application of that knowledge upon utilizing the Learning Quizzes. To really take advantage of the Exam Simulator, read everything fully (questions/answers/explanations) whether you responded correctly/incorrectly.

Thanks for responding.

What's the difference between the simulator and learning quizzes?

The Simulator is broken up into Timed Quizzes, Learning Quizzes, and Exam Sims. The Learning Quizzes are not timed and have "hint" and "show answer" options. The latter provides detailed explanations behind the correct answer, as well as brief reasons why the others were incorrect.
