1) I just passed my PMI-ACP Certification Exam
(Agile Certified Practitioner)
The PMI-ACP is like the PMP For Agile.
It will look good on your resume. And studying for it is a great way to learn a lot about the latest-and-greatest Agile tools.
2) Which Agile disciplines is the PMI-ACP based on?
The ACP is based mainly on 4 of the most popular Agile flavors:
- XP (eXtreme Programming)
3) What study resources did I use?
I studied from the following resources:
a) The PMI-ACP Exam Simulator, from OSP International
(same company as the PMP-Exam Simulator)
Like the PMP Exam, it is highly-recommended to practice with a Simulator as part of your ACP test prep.
This tool helped me a lot in my final prep before my ACP test.
The list price is $99, but here is a Gift Code for $10 off (making it $89)
b) The Agile Prepcast from OSP International
This is an excellent and very robust podcast/video course, led by PM expert Cornelius Fichtner, PMP, CSM, President of OSP International, and host of “The Project Management Podcast.”
This course also satisfies PMI’s pre-req of 21 education hours on Agile to pre-qualify for the test.
