Hi All,
I passed my PMI-ACP exam this week! I scored Above Target in all domains, but it was difficult. Here below are my exam tips:

1. Take a course
2. Study the PMI-ACP exam guide (questions are easy, but wait...).
3. Study the PMI-ACP exam workbook
4. Take notes while you are studying
5. Use simulator exams and take a bunch of timed/learning quizzes to refine weak areas. I took one exam each week, studied more, took another, studied, etc. I never scored higher than 76% on any of the four simulated full-length exams, but that's okay - I reviewed all of the questions I scored correctly and incorrectly to help reinforce what I did right and wrong. The filter features on the exam simulator results are very helpful!!
6. Possibly no need to memorize anything, but you should have a very solid grasp of agile roles (e.g., scrum master, product owner, etc.) and the agile value and principles, which will help a lot on difficult questions.
7. Take exam not at home (based on recent posts about bad experiences). I scheduled my exam for 10:30am but showed up at 9:30 and they let me start early.
8. Take your time with exam - use all 3 hours if needed to review marked questions. I marked a handful of questions on my PMP exam three years ago and didn't change the answers, but I changed quite a few that I had marked on the ACP exam (I marked about 25 on the ACP exam, but I first answered them just in case time ran out). Many answer choices were difficult to choose from - either all seemed incorrect or more than one seemed correct. As always, choose the BEST answer and really pay attention to what's being asked and who's asking. In cases where they use language/terms/phrases in the answers that you haven't heard of before, that might be a clue that it's not the correct answer.
