Hi

After 2 months of study I took and passed the PMI-ACP last week. Got above target in all, but one domain. Huge relief!!

for the study I started with Head First Agile Book and then took the Agile PrepCast (including the 4 simulator exams). Lastly, for the final pre-exam preparation read Mike Griffiths PMI-ACP Exam Prep book once. This order worked well for me.

In terms of setting a date for the exam I tried to guage my readiness by taking the prep cast simulator exams at various stages of my study path. Once I was getting scores cloase to 80% I figured I was ready

I took the exam from home. In retrospect this was a mistake and would certainly take this in a test centre next time. I found the pre exam steps a bit stressful. Had an issue with my phone and uploading the pictures which required manual proctor assistance and meant I started the exam a few minutes later than scheduled. Just seemed unnecessary grief . Although the proctor was extremely helpful and my connection held up for the exam's duration!

Hope this helps other students!

All the best
David

Thanks MM! 21 contact hours coverage is explained in Module 90: "The Final Exam" of the PrepCast. Basically you need to pass the PreCast "Final Exam" and you will get a certificate
