The online practice exam coupon still worked for me in November 2015. However, it's not a great exam in that the questions and answers aren't pulled from a larger pool or randomized--it gets easy to know that the answer to this question is a) and that one is b). In the end, because the FastTrack software wasn't yet ready either, I ended up relying more on the Griffiths book than anything else.
If there is a strength here, it's that Crowe goes more in depth about innovation games, though again there are some in the Griffiths book that aren't in this one. Crowe's better about teaching you *when* you'd use a particular innovation technique while Griffiths gives you more of the *what*.
If you're studying for the PMI-ACP, good luck to you! If you need some surface knowledge to get started, I'd suggest using this book (whenever they get around to updating it) for a little while but then plan on moving a little deeper. The new PMI-ACP exam was, for me, almost completely questions about "This is what's happening--what do you do?" and not about a list of things and pick the one that matches, or fill in the blank for the definition of a term.
1. "Agile Project Management with Scrum" by Ken Schwaber
2. "Agile Planning and Estimation" by Mike Cohn - Overall the best book for this exam.
3. Kanban by David Anderson [Even though this may be a over kill]
4. Agileexams.com. A lot of questions repeat in these exams, so good to just get a understanding of Exam format. [I never passed any of the full length exams on this site, always ended up getting somewhere between 60-70%, the pass percentage was 81%, very high compared to actual exams pass percentage].
5. Countless other resources on the web to fully understand Lean methodology, XP, Agile Manifesto, Agile artifacts, agile reports, etc.
6. Used the "PMI® Agile Certified Practitioner PMI-ACP Exam Prep Study Group" on Linkedin site for some useful tips from people who passed the exam.
7. Mock exams in this book. There are 2 full length exams at the end and a link to free exams online by the author. I felt those exams had questions that were a close match to atleast 30 % of the questions on the real exam, even though the real exam had very tricky answers.
Hope that helps. BTW, I passed the exam last week.
If you really want to practice Agile concepts to prepare for the exam use the Andy Crowe material. Also, the online exam is very beneficial. I do agree with a previous post that there could be additional questions added. However, if you understand why your answers were right / wrong you will be prepared for the exam.
I did review the Mike Griffiths book TOC and reviews. It appears it is also a great resource and probably has more material than this book. If you are not on a shoe string budget, I can see why people may purchase both.
My primary Agile experience is from a product owner perspective and I have very limited experience with software development. If I can pass using the Andy Crowe material, most people should be able to. I read the book twice, took the practice tests five times, and took the online practice exam five times (3 week easy paced prep time).
