Summary:

These tried-and-tested FREE PMI-ACP practice questions help PMI-ACP aspirants to understand their readiness to tackle the real PMI-ACP Exam — excellent in quality!

PMI-ACP Mock Exams

Perhaps one of the most useful reference materials for the PMI-ACP® exam is sample exam questions.  Here is a collection of the best PMI-ACP® sample exam questions found on the internet. The best part is many of these sample exams are free.

PMI-ACP® Sample Exam Questions

The questions to appear on the PMI-ACP® Exam can be broadly divided into two types according to the PMI-ACP® Exam syllabus:

  • Knowledge and Skills – you will need to recall the how and why of the individual knowledge and skill, that means you would need to remember major facts of the topics involved
  • Tools and Techniques – you will need to demonstrate your understanding of the tools and techniques through questions which ask you to do, calculate or chose what would happen next

My First-time Scores for the PMI-ACP® Exam Questions

Like what I did for the PMP® sample exam questions, I document below my score for the first trial of the quality free PMI-ACP® sample exam questions. I will try to compare my scores with the real PMI-ACP® exam to form a benchmark for fellow PMI-ACP® exam aspirants.

No. PMI-ACP® Mock Exam %
1 Mike Griffiths 20 Questions 85%
2 iZenbridge 92 Questions 70-90%
3 Project Management PrepCast 35 Questions 75%
4 PMI-ACP® Training 20 Questions 80%
5 Agileexams.com 25 Questions 70%
Other Paid PMI-ACP® Mock Exmas
5 PMI-ACP® Exam Prep by Mike Griffiths 65-90%
6 PMI-ACP® Exam: How to Pass On Your First Try by Andy Crowe 85%
7 PMTraining PMI-ACP® Exam Practice Questions 66% – 100%

From my own experience as well as many PMI-ACP® exam takers’, the actual PMI-ACP® Exam consists mainly of “situational” / “scenario-based” questions (after all, the PMI-ACP® Exam is a test of your proficiency in applying Agile principles, not your ability to recite information and facts). Many of the questions about actually do not resemble the actual PMI-ACP® exam. But, I do feel that having a strong theoretical background is essential for you to answer the situational/scenario-based questions correctly…… after all — most of these questions are FREE to try. Nothing to lose.

And these question banks will help PMI-ACP® aspirants to understand their knowledge gaps so that they will know where to focus on their studies.

In the end, I got all “Proficient” in the PMI-ACP® Exam. As you will see, even if you get 65% in some parts of the areas covered by the PMI-ACP® Exam, you will be able to pass the exam with flying colors if you keep on studying. Wish you PMI-ACP® success!

    Utilized this resource everyday during my study sessions. Great variety of questions and strongly recommend using these suggestions and links. Took my PMI-ACP exam two days ago and Passed Above Target! Thanks Edward.

    Recommendation Edward: Some of the links route to websites that are no-longer accessible, maybe a quick refresh of links would be helpful.

    Special thank s Edward Chung for his Exam tips and comprehensive information on how to pass the PMI-ACP I followied you advise and suggestion on your website an I just passed the PMI-ACP exam today (Above Target in all domains, and I must say, what a relieve. I want to appreciate everyone that shared their Exam experience and Study plans, it was helpful in tailoring my Exam preparation.
    The Exam wasn’t too difficult or tricky I would say its fair. The bulk of the question were Scenario based but I also got fair amount of not too lengthy straight forward, definition type questions as well.
    The question seems strange at the beginning but felt easier as you go progress. I marked almost all questions as I wasn’t 100% sure (Not Recommended as you may be reviewing through the questions in a rush with the limited time you have available my suggestion is to mark only the necessary questions, so your review could be focused)
    I answered 120 questions in 2:39mins and spent the reminder of the time reviewing all the mark questions.
    It’s definitely an agile mindset exam, also I forgot to mention that I had 3 ½ years working as Agile practitioner.

    Hi Edward,

    just checking in to say thanks for the mock exam link list and the other resources on your website. I passed the PMI-ACP today and your website helped me do it. Here’s a quick wrap-up of how it went for me, maybe it’s interesting for some other folks. This is from March 2018, just before the change of the exam content outline.

    My background:

    Seven years of Product Management and Project Management in different companies, about half of it in scrum teams. I never once saw a “plain vanilla” implementation of scrum or Kanban; it was always half-tailored, half-improvised. Some exposure to classical waterfall / PMP project management as well.

    Preparation:

    – I attended three agile group trainings in my current company over the past three years, 6 days all in all. The last training was specifically focusing on the 21 contact hours required by PMI for the ACP (three days).

    – After taking a couple weeks pondering whether to go for the exam I decided to do it and mostly prepared with Mike Griffith’s PMI-ACP Exam Prep book which I can recommend.

    – I read it once from start to finish, added some bookmarks and prepared some flashcards in the process and then put it all to the side for a bit.

    – Picked it up again after a month or two and did all the test exams at the end of the chapters to find out where I stand.

    – Had about 15 out of 20 correct answers in each chapter and went back over all the weak areas, summarizing more concepts on flash cards, adding more bookmarks.

    – Started doing a couple online mock exams, spending most of the time reviewing the questions where I felt insecure. I did that by searching through keywords in the index of Mike’s book and jumping into the relevant chapters from there. More flashcards and two pages of paper summaries.

    – Did all the exercises in the book which I had entirely skipped during my first sitting.

    – Did the online mock exam that comes as bonus content with the book (60 questions on the rlcms website). That was one of the best ones. Did a very thorough review on those questions/answers.

    – Reviewed a couple concepts online that I didn’t entirely understand from the book (those included Product vs. Story mapping, EVM, Little’s Law, Value-based decomposition and a few others. The book is great but for some of the topics I needed more context to actually understand how they are applied. I still felt uneasy about several aspects of those concepts when I attended the exam because my knowledge on the topics felt just too shallow).

    – In the end I had 50 flash cards because I remember stuff through writing. But the only things I really learned “by heart” were the Agile Manifesto, 3 Scrum Pillars, 12 Agile Principles, 7 wastes of lean and a couple others. Turned out nearly none of this was directly asked for in the exam though.

    – All in all I spent a couple weeks with the book to read it in the evenings (interesting stuff!) and then around three full weekends on really working through the parts where I felt weak (tough stuff!). I think I read somewhere that 50 to 60 hours preparation time are necessary, and I think I might even have used a little more. I scheduled the test on the last possible date before the change of the exam content outline 🙂

    The Exam:

    The Exam was really weird I must say, and I’m not sure what to think of it. It felt very difficult right from the start and got a little easier towards the third quarter, but to me it was tough to cope with the three hours and the ticking clock in the corner of the screen. There were exclusively situational questions and most of them felt ambiguous. In many cases it was easy to cross out two options but nearly impossible to decide between the remaining two. However, there were only three questions where I really had no clue at all – still, the entire time I was unsure whether I would pass, but especially the first half felt really demotivational. The strange part about it is that I didn’t only pass, but got the “above target” grade on every single one of the seven domains. It feels like there’s either something strange with my perception or something strange with how this test is designed.

    That being said, I have very little experience with computer based tests because they’re not so common in the German school/uni system, and the fact that English is my second language certainly required additional resources in trying to exactly decipher the questions. I guess the hardest part here is to really understand all questions well enough to picture each situation, while not missing any details or keywords (who’s acting, what’s the context, which clues might the actors mention?). I felt the urge to read them all out loud to myself, but of course I was not alone in the room…

    A typical question would go something like this (made up nonsense example): “A new member has joined an agile team and is afraid to share his thoughts on a new architecture proposal brought forward by a more senior developer. In the middle of the following six-week sprint, the customer announces a change in plans that would uncover considerable technical debt. How might an agile practitioner react to their inquiry to interrupt the sprint and run a risk-based spike?”
    – Instantly abort iteration and alert senior management (obvious wrong one)
    – Ask the new member to join forces with the senior developer to run the spike (sounds reasonable)
    – Discuss how to proceed with the entire team and Product Owner (always sounds reasonable)
    – Log any risks in the risk register and bring them up in the retrospective (hmmmmm not sure)

    So yeah this example makes little sense but I want to show that the hard part is picturing all of this in your head and drawing conclusions within one minute and 30 seconds, repeated 120 times over the course of three hours. Unfortunately I didn’t encounter any mock exams that did a good job at simulating this experience. Maybe one would have to pay for those.

    The Environment

    Part of the whole experience is the test center where you’re being watched by cameras, security-checked down to your socks, and barely allowed to take a break to have some water. Many things about this test feel American, but if you’ve never had the pleasure to take a plane to the United States, this will probably be your closest experience to the LAX airport security check. Maybe this adds to the perceived hostility of the test itself 🙂

    Well I guess that’s it, hope it helps!

  8. Paul says:

    Edward, which would you recommend more – agileexams.com or pmtraining.com for additional exam questions? thank you!

    • Edward Chung says:

      Hi Pual, between these two, I would advise pmtraining as the questions are more “situational” which is the trend for the PMI-ACP exam. However, I would highly advise you to purchase the PMI-ACP exam simulator if budget permits as the questions are much closer to the real exam.

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  9. Syed says:

    Hi Edward,
    I appreciate your contents and guidance for everyone. I am preparing PMI-ACP exam and planing to write the exam by March 2. Can you please guide which simulator is free with some practice exam questions. I dont want to spend too much money on buying the exams.

    Please advise.

    Syed

    • Edward Chung says:

      Just try out the above free sample questions. But be warned that the actual PMI-ACP exam is having more and more situational questions and the free exams above may not be close enough to the real exam questions.

      I would highly recommend the PMI-ACP Exam Simulator (https://edward-designer.com/web/pmi-acp-exam-simulator-review/ ). You can actually try it out for free.

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

      • Syed says:

        I appreciate your response. Thanks for the advise.

        Do you think is it worth to buy exam simulator for 90 days? or free questions are enough.
        I have booked my exam in few days.

        Thanks.

      • Syed says:

        Do you have any discount code like you shared last year ? I want to buy this simulator asap.
        Please let me know. Do you think is it worth to buy this one ?

        Syed

      • Edward Chung says:

        Sorry Syed, currently there is no discount coupon code for the PMI-ACP Exam Simulator. If you need high quality and user-friendly PMI-ACP mock exams, I would highly recommend you make use of this one.

        Wish you PMI-ACP success!

    Hello All,
    Just want to share the good news that i cleared PMI ACP in my first attempt today.
    Thank you Edward for the inputs, suggestions, tip and tricks that you provided here.. It was so helpful and can’t thank you enough.
    It took me longer than expected( 5 months0 to prepare and clear the examination as i was studying between the time i was getting managing work and family but i kept going even when i only had 15 mins in a day to prepare.
    The paid mock tests difficulty level was too high which really helped me to understand where i was going wrong.
    Good luck to all the future PMI ACP aspirants. May the force be with you.

    Thanks,
    Sachin

    • Edward Chung says:

      Thanks for your comment.

      After going through your list, I would say that some of the concepts are actually included in Mike Griffiths/RMC’s Exam Prep for PMI-ACP (e.g. CARVER, DRY, etc.) while some are included in the PMBOK Guide (should have come across if you have attempted the PMP Exam). The rest maybe some more forward-thinking Agile principles that have not been mentioned in PMI-ACP exam prep books. As there isn’t a concrete/detailed syllabus for the PMI-ACP Exam, I cannot tell whether some or all of these terms are needed.

      But from my PMI-ACP Exam experience, Mike Griffiths’s PMI-ACP Exam Prep book should be sufficient for passing the exam 😛

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  14. SandyK says:

    Sure. Almost all the questions were situational. If you don’t understand the topics well enough/lack real experience they have the potential to confuse you. Focus more on Scrum as I found my prep for PSM I certification earlier and real life experiences very useful. Also if money is not a a concern then definitely consider having personal coaching and/or training. Nothing beats learning from real world discussions and experiences. All the best and good luck to all aspirants!!!

  15. SandyK says:

    I’m happy to share that I passed my PMI-ACP exam on Sep 30, 2017 with Above Target in all categories. Edward’s site has been very useful. God bless Edward!!!

    • Edward Chung says:

      Congratulations on your perfect score. Would you be so kind as to share your lessons learned to fellow PMI-ACP Aspirants? This would be extremely useful. Thanks!

  16. Brian Basu says:

    Hi Edward – I think I jumped the gun on my earlier assessment. I have taken several tests from their question bank and experienced the extent of their coverage as you stated. Their explanations are also quite detailed.

  17. Sesshu says:

    Hi Edward,

    I am going to give my exam (PMI-ACP) next week . Just a day back, I have completed reading Griffith’s book. Now looking for real exam simulated mock questions. Can you please suggest ? Normally how many questions shall be answered (correctly) to pass the exam ?

    • Edward Chung says:

      I would highly suggest the PMI-ACP® Exam Simulator which is close to the real PMI-ACP exam:
      https://edward-designer.com/web/pmi-acp-exam-simulator-review/

      As for the number of correct answers required to pass the exam, PMI has not disclosed this information. So, sorry I cannot help you out as the actual score of each individual question would be adjusted based on the level of difficulty.

      But according to my and many others’ experience, you would need to get at least 65% of the questions correct (and at least 75% in mock exams).

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  18. Brian Basu says:

    Bought the 1000+ quality PMI-ACP® exam questions from PM Training. Repetitive and substandard. Not worth it.

    • Edward Chung says:

      I do agree that many questions are repetitive but this exam simulator helped me to get all proficient as it provides a lot of practice exam questions to help me get used to the the actual exam environment. It’s a pity that you found it not useful.

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  19. Moize Syed says:

    Hi,

    I appeared for PMI ACP exam and failed in first attempt, do you have good quality situational questions for the exam? If yes please let me try a sample before purchase.

    Books I have already is Mike Griffith PMI ACP prep second edition and exploring scrum fundamentals.

  22. solomani says:

    This is a great resource, thanks. Outside these questions are their any paid/free exam simulators you would recomend? I see Mike Griffth has one but at $200 its pretty expensive. I am confident with all my theory and practice but would like to prep more through practice exams.

    • Solomani says:

      Took (and passed) the PMI-ACP exam today. Out of the list of resources above only Mike Griffiths’ stuff is pertinent IMO. The other free tests linked focus too narrowly on a particular method – like XP – but the ACP exam is about the ideas and methods behind agile as they pertain to project management not the specific process of scrum, crystal, XP etc.

      I used the Agile course from Learnsmart and that was prep enough. If you have the money and are keen I would recommend Mike’s stuff as it gives a good idea of the type of questions (and how ambiguous thrust can be) in the test.

  23. Singh says:

    Hi Edward,
    As requested, here are some of my recollection of the exam.

    1) I was surprised to find questions around Sponsor; Higher Management; Functional Leader, where as many of the mock questions only talk about Customer, Product Owner and Scrum Master or Agile Practitioner. Therefore, I would be good for potential candidates to also look for the aforesaid roles influence from Agile perspective and how an Agile Practitioner is support to interact with them on top of Product Owner. E.g. there was a question on ‘Done’ and whom should an Agile lead should reconcile a ‘Done’ product increment. The options included Customer: Product Owner; Both and Sponsor. So I hope people would get the gist what I am talking about.

    2) There were only 2 questions based on graphs of burndown charts, very simple to interpret but options were confusing. Like is the iteration behind or ahead or is the iteration under jeopardy, so people need to be very clear that ‘behind’ is more specific than jeopardy.

    3) There many questions around role of ‘teams’, such as : when a team member does not cooperate, what should Agile lead do? when a team member lacks technical skills; when a team member does not openly share info. ; when a team member has expert knowledge (SME); etc. So it is good to practice questions around team dynamics and what would be then best course of action for the Agile lead.

    If one concentrates on the above topics in details, I reckon they would be in good shape to pass the exam. Cheers.

  24. USingh says:

    Hello all,
    I passed the PMI-ACP today. My first hand feedback is prepared around various situations that could go wrong in the project from requirements perspective , priority, conflict among team; not meeting deadlines etc;and especially on role and responsibilities of an Agile Practitioner; Scrum Master; Product Manager ; Customer and Sponsors.
    Less focus on XP, lean; TDD etc. You will be alright with these topics,

  25. Srinivas Reddy Nalla says:

    Edward,

    I am currently taking the PMTraining mock exams and I think the questions are pretty basic and not formatted at a professional level. They look like they are worded by a school kid. I may be sounding overly critical, but compared to PM Exam Simulator I used for PMP mocks, these look amateurish. Also, in the same 40 question exam, sometimes 4-5 questions are similar. I am now little hesitant to go into the real exam, though I am consistently scoring above 80%.

    Any suggestions?

    Regards,
    Srinivas Nalla

    • Edward Chung says:

      Hi Srinivas,

      Yes, the PMTraining mock exams are much easier than the PMP mock exams as, in reality, the PMI-ACP Exam is much easier than the PMP Exam in my opinion. I do agree that I found the “repetitive” questions quite annoying but if you can consistently scoring above 80%, you stand a high chance of passing the exam (I scored around 70-100% for the various mock exams I have attending in PMTraining).

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  26. Padmini says:

    i just got my pmi acp application approved , i need to start preparing and ideally would like to take the exam by october. is the first step to start agile prepcast and then the book ; followed by sample questions? pls. let me know

    • Edward Chung says:

      Hi Padmini,

      Yes, that’s my sequence of working through the PMI-ACP Certification studies. The Agile PrepCast provides you all the required info in an easy-to-digest video format. The PMI-ACP book is there to help you remember all the key facts and have some hands-on practices. The sample questions are to confirm that you are READY for the PMI-ACP exam.

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  27. Srinivas Reddy Nalla says:

    Edward,

    I am preparing for PMI-ACP exam and am currently going through AgilePrepCast, which will be completing in 2-3 days. How much additional preparation is needed apart from that to pass the exam? Do I need need to read a book or this with other online material is sufficient? I am planning to schedule the exam in the first week of Sep, so wanted to understand the amount of preparation needed.

    Regards,
    Srinivas

    • Edward Chung says:

      Hi Srinivas,

      Glad to receive your comment.

      I would say if you have understood and remembered all the materials in the Agile PrepCast plus you have tried a number of mock exam questions and passed with over 70%, you are almost set to pass the PMI-ACP exam in first try.

      At the time of my PMI-ACP preparation, I was a bit nervous and purchased the book by Mike Griffiths ( http://edward-designer.com/web/best-pmi-acp-book-pmi-acp-exam-prep-by-mike-griffiths/ ) which is considered the “textbook” for the PMI-ACP exam. If you are less confident about passing the exam in first try, you are advised to read that book too. Very good. I finished the book together with all the questions within a few days only and you still have plenty of time to prepare for the exam.

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

    HI Chung, Can you please tell me in that [1000+ quality PMI-ACP® exam questions for US$99US$59] base, how many questions are scenario-based questions? You have mentioned quite a few number of question. Would you able to give me a rough number on out of 1000 how many are scenario-based questions?

    Additionally do you know any other exams that provide more scenario-based practice questions..

    Thanks in advance

    • Edward Chung says:

      I would say probably around 30-40% of the questions are scenario-based at the time of my taking the PMI-ACP mock exam questions. As the online question bank is ever evolving, I am not sure if they have added more scenario-based questions after the update of the PMI-ACP exam last year. Thanks!

    Hello,
    I happened to come across V2 of list of questions at http://leadinganswers.typepad.com/leading_answers/2015/12/20-pmi-acp-v2-sample-questions.html. Just thought to share with you for updating your sample practice questions directory.

    Hi, I am working on the sample exams and bought Agileexams a week back. But, looking into the recent comments, I am bit concerned about the real exam as none of these mock exams are providing more number of scenario/situation based question. I am able to get 70-80% in all these mock exams. Please advise.

    • Edward Chung says:

      I have heard that iZenbridge questions more closely resemble the actual PMI-ACP exam but I do not have first hand experience about that. But I would say if you have the theoretical background on Agile, you should be okay for those situational questions in my experience.

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

      • Manikandan says:

        Thanks Edward, I have cleared my PMI ACP exam today. My view is none of these mock exam sites are close to real exam. All the questions were scenario/Situation based and we need to apply our Agile knowledge to find the correct answer..

        Excellent questions and I really enjoyed the exam by reading the scenarios instead of standard questions in Agile world..

        Regards
        Mani

    cleared ACP . put in more effort during last week. thanks Edward

    • Manikandan says:

      Hi, I am taking PMI ACP exam next week. looking into all these free sample questions and also Agileexams. As OKA said, all questions from simplilearn are pretty straight forward or theory based. I would like some one to share some scenario based questions (aspects) for my preparation

  33. Swapna says:

    Hi .. I am taking my PMI-ACP next week … very nervous and I got only 65% on iZenbridge sample test and 70 – 80% on Mike Griffiths sample tests. Team, please advice if I am ready to take up my exam. Please let me know any test that I could validate my readiness. Kindly help.

    • Edward Chung says:

      Thanks for your email.

      From your mock exam results, you stand a high chance of passing the PMI-ACP Exam! However, recent PMI-ACP candidates have expressed that most of the questions in the real PMI-ACP Exam are situational questions (i.e. presenting a situation and asking you to select the best/most logical action).

      For the time being, I would highly advise you to understand the questions you have got wrong, especially the iZenbridge questions. If you can master those questions, you should be able to pass the real exam!

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  34. Nirmala says:

    I passed my PMI-ACP exam today. Questions were nothing like the sample exam questions I have prepared. Pretty much all the questions were scenario based questions. You really need to understand the concepts well.

    I am now looking for the ways to earn free PDUs for my ACP renewal before my memberrship expires. So that the renewal fee would be less. Any advise on that is much appreciated.

  35. Raj says:

    Hi Oka, Thanks for sharing insight into new exams. Can you please share in scenario based exam it is like based on one scenario you have multiple questions based on scenario and also whether majority of the questions asked for one best option or multiple options ?

  36. Oka says:

    I attended Simplilearn for my 21 contact hours.
    The course and sample questions are more on theory.

    In real PMI-ACP Exam (which I just passed today), it is testing you about 90% application/scenario-based.

    In Simplilearn, they give you 5 sample exam questions. That is 120 question * 5 = 600 questions.
    And none of these sample questions shown in real PMI-ACP exam.
    However, with the “theory” from Simplilearn course, and your real agile project management experience, it is not a problem to take this PMI-ACP exam. Like myself. 😉

    • Edward Chung says:

      Congratulations on passing the PMI-ACP Exam! Thanks for letting PMI-ACP aspirants know that the exam is more about practical application than theory memorization!

  37. Oka says:

    Just passed my PMI-ACP exam today.
    90% of the questions test you on the application side, such as giving you a scenario, and what will you do/manage it.
    There is no straight forward question like what is Kanban, what is the role of Scrum Master.

  38. PM says:

    Simplilearn – Any comments?
    Hi Edward,
    First of all, thanks for sharing all the valuable info about the PMI-ACP certification and tips on preparing for the exam and so on. I found it very helpful.
    Now with the changes to the the PMI-ACP exam, I was researching to find a good training provider, mainly reading the reviews and came across some info on Trustpilot that Simplilearn had fake reviews. I’m curious just wanted to hear if you have any comments.
    Thanks,

    .

    Hi Matulich,

    Congratulations on your passing the PMI-ACP Exam! Thanks a lot for your lessons learned from the new PMI-ACP exam which is very useful to fellow PMI-ACP aspirants!

  41. A. Matulich says:

    Hi, thanks for this collection of exam question links. I passed my PMI-ACP at the end of October 2015, and I must say the exam I took had NO resemblance whatsoever to the practice questions you can find online. Everything you find online tests you on your knowledge of facts. The PMI-ACP has changed. All of the questions (except fpr two about two burn-down charts) were scenario questions: “Here’s a situation, what do you do?” and most of the time two of the choices were equally plausible, and NOT what I would do in real life. I really had to concentrate on what I knew about Agile processes and tools, and how they applied to the given situation.

    Instead if testing you on your knowledge of facts, the exam ASSUMES you already know the facts and instead tests you on the APPLICATION of those facts to real situations. This took me by surprise, and while I finished the exam in 1.5 hours, I used the full 3 hours to complete it, changing maybe 15 of my answers as I went through the exam repeatedly. In the end I passed with two “above proficient” areas with the rest “proficient”, which pleased me — that was better than I did on my PMP exam in 2009.

    I recommend to anyone about to take the exam: Get up-to-date study materials. Yes, it helps to do the practice questions online, but understand that the actual exam will test you on scenarios.

  42. Tom says:

    Hi Edward, just wondering if this page is still relevant as the PMI-ACP exam just got updated and changed.. thanks!
    -Tom

    • Edward Chung says:

      Hi Tom,

      Yes, since the change to PMI-ACP exam syllabus is considered minor (as most of the course materials are exactly the same with a change of the organization of presentation), these PMI-ACP mock exam questions listed above are still relevant!

      Wish you PMI-ACP success!

  43. Maria G says:

    I have been studying for the exam for a while, training material from the class I took, your website and one other book I bought.
    I have been practicing for weeks now and do really well on the exams provided in the materials I mentioned above. But any time I try to take another sample exam that’s new, I don’t do very well. Seems like as if I haven’t covered all aspects of the exam during my studies.

    I already have the exam scheduled for next week and I am very nervous about what to do.

    Many of these websites seem to claim that their simulation tests are enough to study for the exam.
    In your expert opinion what should I do?

    • Edward Chung says:

      Hi Maria,

      Don’t worry too much. Agile is such a broad topic that the sample exams on the market will cover a lot of topics we haven’t dealt with during our studies. I was quite nervous before the exam too. In my experience, the real PMI-ACP exam is a bit less difficult than most practice exams. If you can do well in the training materials and the reference book, that should be sufficient. During my last week of study, I read through my notes and did just a few practice exams. I tried to refresh my mind by having more rests. Don’t worry, if you have worked hard, you will pass the PMI-ACP exam!

      Wish you PMI-ACP exam success!

      • Maria G says:

        Thank you so much for your support. Your website has been a tremendous help!
        What’s the passing score for the PMI-ACP exam? The most I get on any full length practice exam is b/w 80 – 85% 🙁

      • Edward Chung says:

        HI Maria,

        Oh you have done extremely well for getting 80 – 85%! You should be able to pass the PMI-ACP exam with ease!

  44. M Khan says:

I have been preparing for the exam using the sample questions on this website, PMI-ACP Exam Prep: 1000+ PMI-ACP Practice Questions with Detailed Solutions by Tim Bagnall and training material from the bootcamp course I took a few month ago. That training material has 2 comprehensive sample exams.
    I think I have most of it covered, but I am still nervous b/c I want to pass it in the first go.

    Any other recommendations or suggestions?

  45. M Khan says:

    I have been studying for the Exam using this website. Its been very helpful. Thank you so much!
    I also took a bootcamp class a few months ago and the training material from the class includes 2 comprehensive Exams.

    I can keep buying more exams an more books for studying for the exam, but to finish up my prep, I would like to know if there are any other websites you know of that have paid exams that are close to the actual Exam?

    Appreciate your help!

  51. Rahul says:

    Offline “boot camps” were used by 20% of people in the study. Interestingly, nearly half of the people did not mention the name of their boot camp. Compared to resources such as books and practices tests, where people went into great detail on what they used and why they did or didn’t like it, there is much less information on offline courses. Considering the importance of this decision, perhaps this will be the subject of a follow-up post.
