I have registered for the Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) course from Simplilearn. The content of the self-paced learning program is excellent. The best part is that the subunits in each of the domains are very well organized. Simplilearn does not just try to make you pass the examination, they prepare you in such a way that the fundamentals are clarified as well.
