PMI has introduced a new PMBOK V6 that will be in play from 3/26/2018. It has a new Agile Practice Guide as well. There is no mention that PMI-ACP exam will be based on the new Agile Practice Guide but it is better for all the participants to buy the new version, who plan to take the PMI-ACP exam after 3/26/2018. 
PMI website mentions that they are back ordered for the books so if ordered in next couple days, the order will be shipped by 2/28, so the student may not receive their copy by the time they show up to the class. It's perfectly fine not to have the book at the time of the class, but may be necessary when you take PMI-ACP exam.
