PMI-ACP Study material

I have scheduled my PMI-ACP exam in the first week of April 2016. The only study material I used is mike griffith's  book. Is this book enough to pass the exam?

Since the new PMI ACP content became effective the exam has become more scenerio based, from last sometime we have been getting clients feedback that good understanding of agile and agile mindset is needed more than reading Mikes book.

Mike's book covers all concepts tested , but the interpretation and application of these concepts many time not clear from his book.

If you have been following agile for few years and have done other agile courses like CSM , SAFe , PSM1 than you may do great with Mikes book, else you should read some of the  reference books recommended by PMI.

We do have our own PMI-ACP program which ensures preparation for exam, you can explore it here :

i would recommend doing it this way:

✪1. Working Experience in Projects (2000 hours - not needed if PMP certified) and Working Experience in Agile Projects (1500 hours); refer to the PMI ACP Handbook:


✪ 2. Obtain 21 Contact Hours of Agile Education

    - therefore you may use the online PMI-ACP Exam prep course which is excellent in quality. If you already a PMP the Agile PrepCast also gives you 37 PMP PDU for my PMP re-certification as a bonus ! Agile Prep Cast: ☛


✪ 3. Fill the online PMIACP Certifcation application form and schedule the PMI﹣ACP Exam;


✪ 4. Study for the PMIACP Exam; Reference List:

=> Hint: You do not need to study all those books from the reference list; the Agile PrepCast provide you the essence of all of these ☛
