    Hi Group,

    I just completed the PMI ACP exam (Oct 31st 2011). At the outset, it didn't look tough and I was able to finish it off in under 2 hours.

    There were quite a lot of questions on agile manifesto, principles, tools and techniques. Quite a few on Scrum and XP. A few on lean and Kanban (WIP). Not many on Skills but quite a few on Agile Knowledge - particularly on applying them practically. Some on EVMs and their usage, and on Agile estimation.

    For those who aspire to be certified on ACP, I would recommend that you study on the practical application of agile skills, knowledge, tools and techniques, and, principles and manifesto.

    Goood luck, Guys...

    Hi Derek,

    I have referred the it as another blog and it says it's official. Probably it was from you. I also by mid-nov received a mail from PMI_ACP stating somewhat similar numbers. You can refer it as well.

    I did a post-exam teleconference, just after I took the exam. Rory McCorkle was co-host on the call and gave an update as of October 12, when I took the exam.

    Listen to the teleconference here:

    On the teleconference I discuss the focus of the exam that I took (every exam is different), I discuss the books that PMI recommends,and what to focus on in each book. I also group the books by type and hopefully provide you with some great information about how to study and prepare for the exam.

    I hope you have great success with the exam!
