  PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) Exam Study Material [Updated for 2015]

PMI-ACP Certification Exam Courses and Sample Questions Updated for PMI-ACP Exam 2015: I wrote this blog post in Oct 2013 when I was preparing for the PMI-ACP exam. As I was going through process, I was collecting and documenting the list of study resources that I was using or came across during the course of my preparation. I passed PMI-ACP exam on Oct 28, 2013, about 2 weeks ahead of schedule. I shared my PMI-ACP lessons learned after the exam. The PMI-ACP exam changed in 2015. I have updated this page to reflect the changes and updated all the links. Hope you find this page useful.

Here are study resources that I used for my PMI-ACP and found useful.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Ramesh. I have put the prices for Agile Prepcast and the main prep guides. Generally, the book prices on Amazon vary a lot, and it's better to refer to the current prices on Amazon.
