Hello Eduardo,
Im sailing in the same boat. I failed PMI at first attempt. Not sure if I was prepared well. I guess I was too overconfident. I just took a course on Udemy and few sample tests. I guess they were too easy compared to what came in the exam. What do you think is the best study material and practice tests before I retake my exam.
As you have suggested Mike Griffiths PMI-ACP prep book and Prepcast simulators are good enough?!
Also is there any way by which we can identify those 20 questions that dont count on scoring that I dont waste time on in the exam? The reason I asked is I couldnt complete my exam in time.I barely could manage 95 to 100 questions to answer and definitely felt short of time! Again its only me to blame! However want to be wise and better prepared in my next attempt.

I believe they are all referring to the "PrepCast Simulator", which is here www.pm-exam-simulator.com/pmi-acp-exam-simulator/

I wrote the ACP exam and i failed. I prepared really hard, but the questions were completely different. it was nothing like the sample questions online. Please advise me anyone on how i can proceed.
