Today, i passed my pmi-acp. pls let me share my prep & experience for this exam.

• Bought and read Mike Griffiths PMI-ACP Prep book twice and then answer end of chapter questions in back. got average 70% first time.
• Listened the Agile PrepCast twice (got scholarship from OSP...thank you Cornelius)
• Fast reading Agile Estimating, Essential Scrum
• Read super a lot of lessons learned from this website, izenbridge, pmzilla etc
• Bought exam prep the OSP PMI-ACP & PM Training.
* Spend 3 months for preparation, 2-3 week-days, 4-5 hours week-end
* Online study --->,,
You may feel dissapointed spent countless hours to learn spent many agile methodologies were totally useless from the exam point of view but may find helpful if you have a broad mind of learning about all the in-roads of agile (not just for the exam).

General exam observations:
• Exam very HIGHLY situational, felt like 80-90% of the test. the rest straight forward Question and considered bonus Questions.
* No Crystall, ASD, DSDM, FDD
* Got Scrum, Lean/Kanban/XP (few).
* No question dreyfuss, tuckman, harsley.
• Got one easy calc question, velocity, story point
• Know what you can do during an iteration and what you can’t or shouldn’t do (scrum ceremony) i.e. sponsor recommends something to the delivery team lead in the middle of a sprint, who should make the call about this and what should be done with this new recommended feature. i make wrong guess here.
Rest same like Jonathan Hebert said.....highly recommended to read

OSP PMI-ACP exam simulator a bit harder than real exam and cover many aspect like TDD, ATDD etc.
