The term ASAP which stands for "As Soon As Possible" is an acronym.

ASAP is an acronym because each letter in ASAP stands for a word and when you write ASAP you're telling someone that you need to urgently get there or get something done.

When the letters in the shortened term stands for words then it's an acronym so ASAP is an acronym.
