    Hello Guys,

    I have seen some threads related of the same question: How to study / pass PSM I. The most of the answers always is the same, read Scrum Guide, Practice with Open Scrum Test, Formal course and have experience.

    I don't have experience in Scrum, however there are some jobs in my country where is required to know about Scrum framework, for the same reason I'm reading, watch videos and trying to improve my knowledge in Scrum.

    1 - There is any chance to get PSM I certification without experience in Scrum only reading different books, sources, videos?

    2 - How many questions have the PSM I exam? 80?

    3 - Some of Open questions appears in the PSM I exam?

    Thanks a lot of your advice,

    Regards

    Hi,
    1. yes
    2. yes
    3. yes

    I suggest to go thru this forum. You will find a lot of info about the possible questions and answers.
    I did not pass the first time, because the questions within the test are more detailed and more difficult.

    You have to get the "thinking" of the questions and the documents reading.
    It is a kind of logical relations between the information you can get and the questions.


    Best
    Frank

    You may be a seasoned scrum practitioner or not , it does not matter. But cracking the PSM1 exam from scrum.org is different story. you have to get into the scrum framework virtually.

    You can score 50% to 70% correct answers with your real-time experience. But the other questions make the difference and matters to clear the test.

    There will be many thin variations to the answers from the test perspective which are actually not "scrum but" but, leads to confusion while attempting the answers.

    My only suggestion is: read the Scrum Guide until you can see that in the dark. It has every thing dormant. (I mean inactive but capable of providing answers when contemplate for a while) wander virtually with in the document :)


    there are 1000 rules to succeed in the test.

    Rule1: Read SCRUM guide
    Rule2: Remaining 999 rules does not matter

    scrum on!

    Mouli is perfect in his statement. Also, there's a post that focus on preparation for the test and that has some very helpful links.

    https://www.scrum.org/Forums/aft/264

    I have a lot of documentation in portuguese, since im from Brazil, but here are some other links to material in english that may help you during your preparation:

    - http://scrumplicity.wordpress.com/ :(A lot of tips for SM's)
    - https://sites.google.com/site/wicmitchell/home (Blog from Ian, active member of the community), wich helped me a lot to understand some topics like Estimation and Sprint Planning.
    - http://www.youtube.com/user/openCol...ture=watch : Collab.Net Youtube Channel with a lot of Scrum Training videos.

    and of course, the 2 most mandatory:

    - scrum.org : Share your doubts and learn with other peoples experience
    - google.com

    Cheers!

    Hi Fabio,

    Thanks for the answer, your links will really help me prepare. Do you know any website or forum in Brasil where i may find something more?
    I'm looking for people to talk about Scrum and learn experiences as much as i am looking for good material to study.

    Saudações.

    i agree with much of what has been said, having experience is all very well and good ... but agile is a long learning curve of a career, you tend to pick up techniques and make changes under tension with different teams in different environments.

    I've found the best thing I've done to date is just ignore everything I think i know about Scrum and Agile, treat this exam like a new instance of Agile , learn like i would any other framework, learn the rules and structures and forget about anything you've seen in training videos or scrum books... Hammer through the open assessments (both) until they become almost instinctive , understand the answers ... read on the forum why the answers are right, and read the Scrum Guide as many times as you can possibly fit in. Its a simple little book, but being able to apply it 100% without any deviation or temptation to other scrum techniques , will be your best bet for passing.
    I'll know by tomorrow if I'm right or just talking blindly ..
