Charles-

Using your link as my primary study tool, I was able to complete the PSPO I. Well, actually, I did a little better than just *complete* it (76 out of 80!).

I did make one significant change that made a huge difference for me. When taking the PSM I, I was so concerned about running out of time that I didn't take my time at the end as I reviewed the questions I had bookmarked. For the PSPO I, I was sure to really take my time and think about the questions that I was unsure of. Instead of seeing the clock as a scary thing that was ticking down, I saw the remaining time as an asset that I could use to get as many right as I could.

Nice work Dan! Congrats!

I'm not sure I totally understood your comment fully, so if you don't mind, could you re-word it as if you were giving advice to another person? (And if you do, mind if I post it on my page?)

Sure! Sorry for being to slow to respond...

When taking a Scrum assessment (or any timed test, really), try not to get over-concerned about running out of time. With your first pass, you hopefully answer a fair number of questions with confidence and still have some time remaining. But, you probably have some bookmarked where you are uncertain. Think of the remaining time as a resource that you can use to get as many right as possible. Be sure to really take the time the think about those questions. There's no added bonus for leaving 10 minutes on that clock. You might as well keep trying to come up with correct answers until you get much closer to the time limit.
