    Morning,

    How different is the Open assessment compared to the PSPO 1 assessement? I understand that the PSPO is much harder, but the general advise on the forum is to do the Open assessments until you consistently get 100% and that is one of the indicators that you may be ready for the PSPO.

    Is the Open assessment more in-line with the PSM one, as their are not many questions which deal with adding value?

    I am consistently (last 10 attempts), getting 100% for the Open assessment, so how close am I to being ready for the PSPO? Or is there very little correlation between the two?

    Thanks,
    Justin

    Hi Justin,
    the open assessment is in-line with the PSM. However, many PSPO I questions are the same. In addition there are some PSPO specific questions about the PO's job, value, ROI, TCO etc.
    If you attended a course, you have some material which you can drill down into. That helps as well. And, of course, you should know the Scrum Guide by heart.
    Good luck!

    Thanks for the info. Other than the suggested reading, can you recommended some short reading on the Value, ROI, TCO etc aspects?

    I have only read the slides from the course and did pretty well. For the PSPO I this should be enough. The questions are not very complex, more like "What is the PO's concern", and the correct answer is "ROI and TCO" instead of "being the interface between business and IT".

    Hi,
    A chap who was on one of my recent PSPO course suggested that this short video is a good overview of the PO role.

    Also, review the https://www.scrum.org/Courses/Professional-Scrum-Product-Owner/PSPO-Subject-Areas

    Open Assessment is good to start with and boost your confidence, however the questions there are too simple and not good enough to pass the exam. 10% to 20% of the exam questions will be tricky - situation based and you need strong understanding of the SCRUM concepts to ensure that you pass the exam. You probably can secure around 50% by practicing Open Assessment but you need 85% to pass. So other than knowing the Scrum Guide line by line by heart, you can also take mock tests provided by external vendors like http://www.testtakeronline.com/ to assure you are there.

    Thanks, although Test Taker does not have a PSPO mock test. Only SM. Do you know of a provider that offers a PSPO mock?
