NEW BONUS FEATURE ADDED! This courseware can be used with our latest Agile audiocasts on the official "PMIACPTraining" website.

Seriously, who has time to read all of the books recommended to pass the PMI-ACP exam? We did! And we guarantee you ll pass the PMI ACP Agile Certification Exam on your first try if you learn the concepts provided in our collection of practice questions, study material and course ware. When we began studying for the exam we purchased all 11 books, and later realized we only needed 4 of them. That isn t to say that the other 7 books weren t of any value. They were but reading the same thing 7 different ways was really a waste of time. All the same, when you have access to good material you don t need to take 100 s of practice questions to gage how much you know. Either you know the Agile concepts or you don t. Like Agile, we believe that Less Is More! Once you learn the core values and principles behind being Agile the other books simply reinforce the concepts through various perspectives and scenarios. So in the spirit of operating Lean and removing waste we ve distilled the contents of all the recommended books into one source our: PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) Exam Preparation Self-Study Courseware.

Unlike the other PMI exams, the questions on the PMI-ACP exam aren t as abstract. However, if you re able to understand the abstraction of Agile that ties all of the tools and techniques together you ll easily be able to pass the exam by focusing the main tenants of Agile. So when you study smarter, instead of harder, you don t need to waste your time reading all of the recommended books or taking hundreds of practice questions.

Another unique aspect about this courseware is that it s written by an experienced Lean IT Enterprise Architect and PMI project manager. As founders of The PM Instructors , we ve leveraged our skills as technical trainers and REAL WORLD IT professionals to ensure this courseware offers an in-depth look at Agile project management from both a PMI and software development perspective--delivered in a combination of lecture and hands-on learning format. This unique combination allowed us to write the material from each of our perspectives. As a result, it will help project managers and developers that use this material to learn how to communicate and collaborate with each other more effectively long after you ve passed your exam.
