I passed the PMI-ACP Exam – 1 book worked for me!

Home The Savvy PM Blog I passed the PMI-ACP Exam – 1 book worked for me!

100 Congratulations, you have obtained PMI-ACP” – that was the Subject Line of the email I received from PMI.  Andy, Louis, and I participated in the pilot program for the exam.  And, Monday, we received the much-anticipated notification that we had indeed passed the exam and been awarded the PMI-ACP certification.  Cheers!

We’ll explore this Agile exam further in future posts…today I want to share a word of encouragement.  1 book made the difference.

In the next month, Andy Crowe will release his book The PMI-ACP℠ Exam: How to Pass on Your First Try.  That’s the book that worked for me.  Andy is my boss and his office is 10 steps from mine, so I was able to procure a draft copy of the book to use as my primary resource of exam prep.  My testimonial: I passed!  Best of all, I didn’t just scrape by…  My exam score report reads “Proficient” in the 2 domains, indicating that my results were above average.

If you are pursuing the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner certification, you’ll find a list of 11 references on PMI’s site.  In the past, I read a couple of those by Schwaber and Sliger because I am a nerd, this stuff interests me, I worked in the software industry for 16 years…and I am a nerd. 😉  Sorry…the preferred phrase is that I am a “lifelong learner”.  Anyway, if you want to pass this PMI-ACP exam, get Andy’s book.  It is laser-focused and written in a language that you and I understand.
