Most of us are probably Project Managers or involved with project management on a daily basis. When faced with creating a project plan for an unusual project, we, at times, have problems. Preparing for the PMI-ACP Exam seems to be such a project.
So what would a good plan look like to help you prepare for the PMI-ACP Exam?
Of course, we cannot provide you with a “one fits all” solution, but we can help you with some high-level milestones for your planning.
Here are a few milestones to get you started:
1) Complete the required 21 hours of PMI-ACP training
2) Complete and submit the PMI-ACP exam application
3) Create a plan that has you studying for a set time every day until the exam. For example, study 2 chapters a night for 8 weeks. Plans are like enforcers….. if you have one, you are more likely to follow it.
4) Study studying by using one or more of these methods:
a. Study by using an online PMI-ACP prep class
b. Attend a PMI-ACP exam prep class
c. Read the 11 recommended PMI-ACP books
d. Study a PMI-ACP exam prep book, which encompasses the 11 recommended books
e. Take several practice exams
f. Once you score 80% or higher on 2-3 different, full practice exams, you are ready to take the exam
Between all these milestones, there is still one missing. Scheduling the date you’ve decided to pass the exam. I like to make this decision once I feel like I can see light at the end of the tunnel. If you study better under pressure, than go ahead and schedule the exam for the near future, say, 2 months from now. This is entirely up to you.
This is a simple list of milestones to get you started.
