I posted other reviews about my PMI-ACP journey on the forum. However I thought a brief one on the real exam versus the simulator would maybe help others

My first pass through the REAL PMI-ACP EXAM took a little over 2 hours. When I started to review the marked Q&As, the timer was at 56 minutes. Surprisingly it took me about 20 minutes to go through those marked questions. I changed maybe 3-4 answers. I guess I had less than 15 to go through this fast. Then I went back to the 1st question and reviewed the Q&A, I remember changing at least 1 answer. And with 8 minutes, I thought there was nothing more I could do. I ended the exam. Like always, it is exhilarating and a relief to see ‘Congralulations!’ on the screen!

I cannot go into details of the questions themselves. I can say I had 1 question with velocity where I had to do a calculation, I also got 1 question with a graph. The questions are quite similar to the ones you will find in the PMI-ACP Exam simulator. All were situational but 1 question about a specific tool/technique. It threw me off a bit.

The concepts from the questions are all covered in PrepCast’s PMI-ACP EXAM SIMULATOR and the Agile PrepCast e-course. I don’t remember something that I did not encountered before on the REAL EXAM. And I did encountered new concepts in PrepCast’s SIMULATOR. On those occasions, I used the Live Feedback to contact someone from PrepCast to asked more information. A special thanks to Stan Po who answered me.

I did the 480 questions once, and then did a last quiz for the Q&A’s I got wrong. I went from 70% and 77% in my first two quizzes to 83-84% in the exams and 91% for the last quiz.

I passed my PMI-ACP exam on March 19th, 2022 with above target in all 7 domains.

Hope this helps other candidates. Thank you PrepCast!

You could try the other groups within the Forum. But I know I rarely log into Prepcast after completing a training.

I would suggest you either join a group in LinkedIn like
- PMI® Agile Certified Practitioner PMI-ACP Exam Prep Study Group
- PMI-ACP with Mike Griffiths
- Disciplined Agile (this on is an officiel group of PMI)

There is also www.projectmanagement.com that has forum. If you are a PMI member you get free access. But I think you could also connect as anonymous to post questions. You could always try.

Hope this helps. Regards, Chantal
