As you start preparing for the PMI-ACP exam you need to be taking as many simulated exams as possible. When I was personally preparing for PMI-ACP I gathered a list of questions and answers to prepare me.
This list was the basis for this practice exam I have created. It is hosted on Google forms which you can access directly here 120 Question free Quiz has been created on Google Forms.
All I ask in return is to share this page with others on social media so we can help each other.

Taking Plenty of PMI-ACP Practice Exams is a must. You can’t possibly take too many practice exams before the PMP exam. I recommend trying to simulate the exam day experience by putting 3 hours aside to take the exam. To get the most out of the exams do the following:
- Write down all answers on notebook
- Mark the exam and document the score
- Review all incorrect questions
- Do not attempt the exam again till close to the exam
Here is a list of the exams I found the most challenging:
PMI-ACP Exam Prep for PMP Holders
- PMPs are required to accumulate a minimum of 60 PDUs for every 3 years to stay certified. Agile training for the PMI-ACP® can be put towards your 60 PDUs.
- When PMP and PMI-ACP® qualified you can claim the same PDU for both as long as the PDU is Agile related.
- The requirement of 2000 hours to do the PMI-ACP® is not required as you have already verified your project experience.
- After going through the PMP® process you are already familiar with the format and understand what it takes to pass a PMI® examination.
- 75% of projects were completed using Agile methodologies so more and more companies are using the methodology and would be advantageous in an interview to have.
PMI-ACP Exam Prep FAQs
The PMI-ACP® stands for Project Management Institute Agile Certified Practitioner Certification. It was specifically created for project managers who have experience working with Agile project methodologies.
The PMI® reported that 75% of projects were completed using Agile vs 56% using the traditional waterfall method. The PMI-ACP® covers Agile Methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, Extreme Programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD).
The PMP® is more relevant to project managers who work with traditional methodology such as waterfall. The PMP® prepares you to plan, manage and execute a project on a high level. Qualified PMP® project managers have demonstrated their competency in understanding the process and techniques in the PMBOK®. While Agile methodology is mentioned in the PMBOK the majority of concepts are mentioned in regards to waterfall projects.
