Happy to announce that I cleared my ACP certification this week!
Just wanted to share my experience that might help other people to deisgn the study strategy and get more insights into the exam

Firstly when I enrolled, I noticed that there are 3 attempts allowed to take the exam and pass which wasn't like that in the past. Offcourse you should disregard this information because the moment you think you have more attempts, you will definitely need it (like Parkinson's Law)

I used 3 sources to study:
1. PMI-ACP Exam Prep course by Joseph Philips ( All concepts well explained at lowest price. You can use this course to earn 21 contact hours required to enroll for ACP
2. PMI ACP Exam Prep book by Mike Griffiths
3. PMI ACP Exam Simulator containing 4 full exam sets from PM Prep Cast (These questions were really useful to prepare to answer the situational questions appeared in the real exam)
My personal opinion is you cannot depend on just one source and need to use multiple sources to complete your knowledge

All 120 questions in the exam were situation based questions so you really really need to have Agile mindset to answer them. No theorical knowledge will directly help to answer the questions. The exam is really tough if you cannot understand the situation questions well

You may write to me at (email address removed by moderator) if you want to know some more tips and details
