I do not deny the value of self-study however only an experienced Agile Trainer can clear your basic concepts.
21 Contact Hours Agile Training is a mandate but what I have noticed is that most of the people consider it as a mere prerequisite for PMI-ACP® Certification. I would suggest do not underestimate the worth of PMI-ACP Training. The company offering 21 contact hours PDUs assures your certification. Your Agile skills and learning get honed in the process-you get hands-on experience of Agile tools & techniques.

Last, but not least you need to assess your readiness for the final PMI-ACP® Test for which you need to take simulation exams.
