Sadhana,

1. I assume you are asking about professional scrum master 1 (PSM 1) certification.
- To get overall info - go to the "Assessments" link on the top of this page. Read all the info about PSM

2. In addition to the information you got in scrum.org Assessments, check out the short book that is also good summary of the certification right from enrolling, payments to preparation - http://www.amazon.com/Pocket-Guide-...B019KU3KKW

3. Well... The certification is just like any other standard credentials used in the market. It will open the doors for initial interviews with prospective employers. There after, it depends on actual competencies you can demonstrate from experience and indepth understanding. I did my my CSM. However, PSM seems to be much better in imparting the fundamentals of scrum. So, it could be a great learning experience too

Cheers!

Scrum master certification without attending class room training.

It might be helpful for you to check out Inspect and Adapt (https://inspectandadapt.com/). They have an e-learning section.

Hello Kushboo,
I wrote the PSM 1 today and cleared with 98%.
I didn't buy any paid course nor did any training and solely relied on self study.

This is what i did and suggest

1- Read the scrum and nexus guide inside out atleast 4-5 times. The trick is understand the implied meaning of sentences as a lot of the questions in the assessment will not be straight forward but rather implied

2 - Do all the open assessments atleast 7-8 times scoring 100% consistently. I think around 10-15 questions in the PSM were repeated from the Open Assessments.The open assessments are much easier than the actual PSM.

3- Try the FREE PSM Mock Assessment by Mikhail Lapshin - (http://mlapshin.com/index.php/psm-q...ing-mode/) . This is only free assessment that is available on the net and is really good. The questions are also similar to the actual PSM.


Hats off to Mikhail for putting this together and helping the community

4- Check the Scrum.org forum discussion to gain understanding on topics

Hope this helps !!

Aamir

Thank you for prompt response. I thought everything is coming from the scrum guide but i do not see anything about Nexus in it.
Any suggestion?

No, I guess you have been misinformed.There will be some questions on the application of scaled scrum too.
I am not sure if you have a background in Scrum/Agile. If you have not worked, getting a training will be a good idea.
You will need to understand the principles of scrum in depth, else it might be difficult to clear the assessment.

Two days ago I cleared PSM1, got 93.8% (75 out of 80). Thanks to scrum forum , it really help.
Here's what I did:
1.Read the scrum Guides (2 times)
2.Read the MPlaza The Scrum Master Manual
3.Read the scrum Guide
4. 3 Mplaza assessment
5. Scrum open assessment
6. Mikhail Lapshin assessment
** Repeat step 4,5,6 again and again.
7. Read the scrum guide
Try to understand scrum guide in and out and do above assessment again and again.

Congrats! Did you have any questions regarding Nexus on the exam? I wonder whether I need to read Nexus Guide as well.
Did you buy MPlaza assessment? I noticed several mistakes in their manual. What's your opinion on their assessment questions?
Did you answered questions in all types of Scrum Open Assessments?
