Hi All,

 

I am new to this Forum, I am Preparing for PSM Certification. I have gone through Scrum Guide and attempted Scrum Open assessment. I am scoring 96% in Scrum Open. I have not attempted other Open Assessments. Is this Ok to Clear PSM Exam.

Thanks

How many times have you read the Scrum Guide? The Scrum Open is great, but if you're going for the PSM, you should take the PSM Open Assessment multiple times. I would take all of the Open Assessments because it gets you thinking about the exam content and when you get a random question that revolves around coaching instead of specifically Scrum, you will likely score better.

Do a search of the forum, there are hundreds of posts talking about the tips for passing the PSM exam. I will say that simply reading the Scrum Guide once or twice is far from enough to pass the exam.

I agree with Curtis.  Another variable is your Scrum experience.  In addition to the Scrum Guide, the book "Scrum: A Pocket Guide" by Gunther Verheyen may also be helpful to you.

Hi Ravikumar, 

I've passed PSM 1 (and also PSPO 1) by using these three tools:

1 - of course, the Scrum Guide

2 - if you need you may try to practice PSM 1 mock tests on volkerdon. There are 320 questions just for 10 USD. 

3 - also there is a great resource to prepare for exam - ScrumCrazy There are many great articles which will definitely help you to pass PSM 1. 

But it is up to you to decide which resource you have to use.

Hi,

Sorry to jump on to someone’s else post. I am also preparing for the PMS I . I have worked in a organisation which followed scrum pretty diligently. I worked as a scrum master there for sometime too. So I already know a lot of terms and processes involved with scrum. Will this help me in clearing the exams. In terms of preparations does this make it any easier for me?

You can try the practice tests here. It helped me. He also has tests for the PSPO and SPS: http://mlapshin.com/index.php/scrum-quizzes/psm-real-mode/

You can search the forum as there are many good advice given to multiple threads, e.g.

Thanks for all your Inputs. I have Read Scrum Guide taken Open Assessment tests Multiple times. Managed to Score 100% On scrum Open and PO Open.

I have also tried http://mlapshin.com/index.php/scrum-quizzes/psm-real-mode/ exams and managed to Score above 95% consistently.

My Doubt is recently i have taken nexus Open ,i could not score well. my score is less than 50%. should i need to score 100% in nexus Open before attempting for Real exam.

Hi Orkhan, thanks for advices. There are so many articles on ScrumCrazy and due to this maybe you will provide just 4-5 the most important articles to read. 

P.S. Sorry for this question, but I can't send personal message.

Hi Haike, 

Thanks for the question )))) To be honest it is up to you. In my mind you have to read more about events and artifacts in Sprint (there are about 7-9 articles). But again it is up to you.

Hi All,

I have passed PSM I today with 97.5%. It was my first attempt. 

Other than Open Assessment of Scrum.org https://mlapshin.com/index.php/scrum-quizzes/sm-learning-mode/ is also a helpful link.

Going through this forum discussions helps to build confidence.

 

Thanks and Regards
