    Hi community,

    I started totally fresh with scrum 2 weeks ago. We need a PSM1 at work and I get asked if I would like to learn this.

    So I started reading the guide, all sites mentioned in other posts here and which I could find on the web.

    I am still reading stuff, and since 3 days I do several open assesments here and free tests at testtakeronline.com.

    All with more then 95%.

    What do you think? Am I ready for doing the PSM1 assesment? I mean, with the above knowledge about me, is there any good chance I could handle this assesment with the first try?

    Or would it be better to spend 20$ at testtakeronline for the package with 350 questions?

    Any comment would be very appreciated! Thanks!


    Cheers,
    Thomas

    It would be better to let your skills bed down with experience. I'd say it takes at least a year working on a Scrum team to provide a suitable grounding for PSM I.

    It's certainly possible to cram for the exam and pass it in a few weeks, or even a few days, but is that really the goal your employer is setting you?

    I made myself not clear sorry. I am already working with scrum, as a part of the development team since 9 months or so. Starting fresh should mean with the guide and the other stuff that is to learn. Sorry english is not my native language.

    Be Agile!

    Do the exam, inspect it, adapt it ;-)

    I didn't do the testtakeronline and passed it as well.

    Goodluck!

    Hi,

    I cleared PSM 1 few days before without any course ( as there was no course available in North India). I study Scrum Guide regularly for 15 days and go through articles available on net.

    Apart from this , i had around 2 years of experience as Scrum master which helped me in clearing this test.

    You know when you're ready when you do the open assesment without reading the multiple choice questions and you can give the answer. It's a good excercize to get your lean compass pointing north. The actual PSM I exam has some of the open test quests and also alot of questions you havn't seen before.
