As one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto, I am delighted to see this book by Mike Griffiths. It is great that such an exam guide was prepared by someone with a deep understanding of both project management and Agile development. Personally, I hope that everyone reads this book, not just to pass the PMI-ACP exam, but to learn Agile development safely and effectively!

This is a VERY enjoyable book to read, due to Mike's firm grasp of the underlying concepts of Agile, and his articulate and entertaining writing style. My favorite part is the fact that it is organized into a framework that helps all of the Agile concepts hang together, so they will be easier to recall when taking the PMI-ACP exam. But Mike's book is more than just the best PMI-ACP prep book out there. It is also the best consolidated source of Agile knowledge, tools, and techniques available today.
Even if you are not planning on sitting for the PMI-ACP exam in the near future you need to buy this book, read it, and keep it as a reference for how to responsibly be 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.Read more ›
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.
