Passing the PMI-ACP exam is different from other certification exams that I've taken. The biggest difference was that I never had any questions that had me fill in a blank, pick a term from a list, or do a formula calculation. Instead, almost everything I was asked was along the lines of "This is the situation--what do you do?" and the right answer required me to be able to THINK in Agile.

I used the rmcproject.com book on the PMBOK for my PMP certification, so for the ACP, I came back to it again to see what it could offer. The truth is, this book is overkill. It covers way more material than you need to know to pass the exam, and it even says so in several places. But that's because, as I mention above, this exam is about needing to know a lot of things in order to rewire your thinking for some pretty tough questions.

There are a couple of times I think the author does a poor job of making examples through metaphor--the analogies don't quite fit, but you can get the general idea. There are also times the book goes a bit chart-happy and we have graphics that I don't feel are necessary to make a point. For example, I don't need a pair of overlapping curves on an X-Y diagram with pictures of CD-ROMs and books to understand that face-to-face communication has the highest value.

That said, I still do recommend this book. And I also STRONGLY recommend you use the latest edition of this book because the PMI-ACP exam changed in October of 2015. As luck would have it, I had to switch to this edition just as I was close to taking the exam--so I can tell you that yes, the new edition has been substantially modified in certain places. It's much thicker.

I bought the Second Edition, because I took my test in Nov 2015 (and passed). The first version was for those people taking the test before November 2015. Most of the information I drew upon to answer questions came from this book (and experience of course). The book helped with the correct terminology. The book is very well written and very easy to understand. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that the practice questions were not very similar to the real exam questions. Maybe it is the new test format since November or something, but only ~50% of the actual PMI-ACP exam questions were similar - in some way - to the practice questions in this book. More on the questions later. However, what is most important here is that I did pass, so this book obviously did something really, really well for me to pass :) I used the book as Mike instructed: I read the book once and did not do the end of chapter questions, then I read the book again, and did the questions. I have been using Agile for ~5 years, but I actually picked up more the 2nd time through. In addition to the book, I bought the flashcards and the Question Bank from www rmcls .com. I was not impressed with the flashcards because they had soooo much stuff on each one. I ended up making my own with 3x5 notecards that were better suited to quizzing myself one topic at a time. I also bought the question bank of questions. I bought Version 1 (Version 2 still not out), and am not sure I would spend that $100 again. The questions on the question bank required you to know so many details (exact working of 12 principles, exact wording of tools used in each stage of Retrospectives, etc..), but none of those specifics were on the actual test. Very strange.Read more ›

I used this book as the main driver for my preparation for my PMI-ACP exam. After taking the tests in this book, I gauged my weak points and read on those topics, using the other books in the PMI reference list. No problem at all passing the exam.

I highly recommend this book as the main resource for your certification preparation. The way the book was organized and presented is also quite light; not as simple as Rita’s for PMP, but still a very easy read and effective format.

I studied with this book and the PM FasTrack automated software (by RMC). After reading this book (from cover to cover), these 300+ pages gave me the edge I needed. I took and passed the PMI-ACP exam one the first attempt. Hooray!!! Now I am both PMP and PMI-ACP certified.

This covered about 90% of what was on the PMI-ACP exam. That sounds fine but if you only remember 90% of this book and go take the exam you will only score an 80%. I went through the entire book, did all the practice exams and review questions, reviewed any areas where I missed a practice question and I passed the PMI-ACP exam but there were several questions and concepts on the exam that were completely foreign to me. Missing from the book were some technical terms for certain reports/graphs as well as discussion about agile principals for personnel issues. For example one question I remember from the exam was about how should you as scrum master handle a team member who repeatedly fails to adhere to agile principles after you have already discussed these principles with the team member.
