Preparation

ACP exams are intended to be challenging – increase your chances of success with careful preparation!

  • Download the Exam Topics and evaluate your readiness. 
  • Get hands-on practice across all the topics, paying particular attention to functionalities you work with less often.
  • Consult the Atlassian product documentation to learn about the nuances of each topic that you may be unfamiliar with.
  • If you typically use a localized product, use the English version to prepare for the exam, so that you'll be familiar with the names of menu options and other product features.
  • Be sure you have a high-level awareness of how to work with the Jira Administrator to configure Jira for your team's needs.
