Not only was ACP-100 Jira Administrator the first Atlassian Certification to b made available, it is the only Atlassian certification that can be used to extend and maintain another Atlassian certification - ACP-600.
Unlike ACP-600 Project Administration in Jira Server, the certification prep course guides you need in what you need to study not what information you need to know i.e. it gives you the questions you should be able to answer not the answers themselves.
For that reason, this study plan has 3 phases including product training tutorials, examination preparation videos, and time for studying before sitting the exam.

No, of course not. Even the highly recommended certification preparation course is not prerequisite for sitting the exam.
This study plan makes use of the training that is available as a suggested approach and also because access to (some) of these are a perk for being a Community Leader and/or working for an Atlassian Solution Partner.
I will be starting this study plan with two team members on 13 November. We have factored in a 2 week break for Christmas and New Years and should sit our exams in mid-February 2020.
