PMI-ACP Exam Reference Books
As there is no official Agile Body of Knowledge (BOK), PMI came up with a list of books hat encapsulate the curriculum. These books, needless to say, originates from the top minds in Agile thinking.
PMI-ACP Exam Syllabus – Reorganized in late 2015
- Mike Griffiths, in the book PMI-ACP® Exam Prep, tries to create a more structure for the PMI-ACP® Exam syllabus by grouping Agile Tools and Techniques / Agile Knowledge and Skills into the Domains (which can be thought of as different aspects of Agile project management).
- Inspired by Mike’s effort, I have created the following PMI-ACP® Exam Syllabus matrix (for the new PMI-ACP® syllabus) to give PMI-ACP® aspirants a more concrete grasp of what would be tested on the PMI-ACP® Exam.
- This table can also serve as a last minute revision notes for PMI-ACP® Exam takers to test whether they have understood all the concepts as included below
Updated Syllabus Table. Ensure you know everything about every topic listed, and this should indicate when you are ready for the exam.
