Dear scrum community,

Thanks for the great support,

Hello Nils and Shailesh,

Basically I continued how I studied for the psm II exam, like studying blog post, forum posts, books and of course the scrum guide. After a while I found the following very interesting page:

And since I knew there are 34 questions of this type I got very scared. I was confident that I could answer question like this quite good but not in this small time box. Hence, I started practicing this by asking myself a lot of similar question based on the psm open questions and tried to write down the answer as quick as possible. At the end this help me a lot but still it was very very tough for me To finish in time. 

Hopfully this little inside on how I “practiced” for the exam will help you guys.

Simon, do you still have these questions, and would you be willing to share them?

I (and presumably others) would find these useful.

@ Simon Mayer. Unfortunately not. But I think most of all I have learned, about scrum and not typing, by formulate this questions.

Congrat, Simon! May I have a question for you? I also took the test 10 days ago, but it still "requires grading", how long did it take for you to get the grading?

06:24 pm February 12, 2018

@TruongSinh If I remember correctly about 10 days. So you should get the results soon. I wish you best of luck!
