Good Day!

Could someone indicate and confirm if you are familiar with Mike Griffiths' PMI-ACP Exam Prep books as to whether you have heard or seen that he will have an updated book to align with the March 26, 2018 exam update? Right now, I see that his second edition (full title below) that covers from on/after October 15, 2015. Is anyone aware of a planned edition update for 2018? or is this book still applicable after the 2018 exam change?

PMI-ACP Exam Prep, Second Edition: A Course in a Book for Passing the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) Exam Second Edition Edition

Thank you,
Steven

Steven,

I quickly wrote to Mike and he sent me the following response:

"Yes, there is a new version of my book, updated for the March 2018 Exam changes. It is identified by the new front cover call out "Updated Second Edition with new situational questions... including 2018 exam change". This new edition is already shipping from the RMC bookstore, I am not sure what stock Amazon has left."
Until Next Time,

Thank you Cornelius for the follow-up to Mike!

I ended up contacting RMC Learning Solutions. Since they feature the latest PMI-ACP Exam Prep book with the 2018 exam change on their store website, I had noticed that the ISBN assigned to that book at RMC Learning Solutions references back to the ISBN -13 2015 update on Amazon,which does not have the 2018 call-out on the cover. Being an Amazon Prime member, I was wanting to take advantage of better shipping cost options. It may be that book information details (& book cover image) are incorrect at the moment on the Amazon website, and could be that Amazon is shipping the latest edition from November 2017. Hope to have clarification in a day or two.

RMC Learning Solutions: store.rmcproject.com/pmi-acp-exam-prep-second-edition
Published October 2015, Updated November 2017 - (with 2018 Exam change call-out)
ISBN 9781932735987

Amazon: amazon.com/PMI-ACP-Exam-Prep-Second-Practitioner/dp/1932735984/
RMC Publications, Inc.; Second Edition edition (October 5, 2015) - (without 2018 Exam change call-out)
ISBN-13: 978-1932735987
ISBN-10: 1932735984

Also, because I am interested in the Hot Topics flash cards, I am checking whether the flash cards will be updated to match the 2018 exam change as well.

Thank you Sir

I heard back from a Client Relationship Specialist from RMC Learning Solutions on a few questions.



  • It was communicated that since the exam changes for the ACP are very minor, so minor that the new edition that RMC Learning Solutions is putting out will have mostly cosmetic changes. It was indicated that I am safe to use their current version to study for the change.

  • Hot Topics Flashcards are updated along with other ACP Materials for 2018 Exam.

  • There is uncertainty to the availability on Amazon with the 2018 update.
