Is the PSM I/II/III a browser restricted closed book exam?

I passed PSM II about a week ago, and PSM I a week before that.  I had no Scrum experience before I started a new job a month ago.  They are trying to adopt Scrum and I found it really fascinating.

I prepped by taking the open certifications every day till I consistently scored 100% in under 4 minutes or so.  The other thing I did that really helped me is that I read the Scrum Guide very actively.  After every passage I pause and try to imagine how I'd explain what I just read to someone who'd never heard of Scrum.  That helped me immeasurably in trying to apply Scrum concepts to scenarios I've never personally encountered.

The test isn't easy.  There were a few questions from the open assessments (maybe 3 or so), but almost everything else asked you to apply Scrum to a given situation.  I went through it quickly, answering the questions I knew right off the bat and bookmarking the ones I didn't (which were about half of them).  Then I went back and gave those some in-depth analysis.  I didn't find the time to be an issue at all.

If I can do it you can.  Scrum on!
