Hi all,

I passed PSM 2 exam, thanks to everyone here who has contributed this forum and posted useful comments or suggestions.

My tips would be:

- Obviously, read and digest the Scrum and Nexus Guide over and over again. Get 100% on all open assessments and pass PSM1 first.
- Go and buy "Scrum - A Pocket Guide" by Gunther Verheyen. It is a MUST. Read that book regardless of preparation for the exam, it will help you understand the essence of agile mindset.
- Read some articles regarding "Architecture". could be useful.
- There are many useless trial exams on web. Don't waste time on them. Only two sites I find very useful are and

In general, I liked the exam and the way questions are prepared. It challenges you with real life situations. It was fairly easy for me to pass as I have experience, so actually I would suggest having some experience before trying the challenge.

Have fun with this journey and good luck!

Congrats. It's next on my list next week or so.

Congrats. True, without experience it would be difficult to find the correct approach against those real life situations

Congrats Ilter!

I'm gearing up for this one as well and I found an awesome website by Simon Kneafsey; who posts on the forum pretty frequently. He is a trainer in the UK and his website contains a short practice exam that is really awesome.

At the first go, I scored 75% (it's only 8 questions so missed 2). Upon reviewing the questions again, I knew where I messed up on 1 of them but another (multiple answer) still gave me grief. However, once I took a breath and read the question in full and then considered how each of the answer choices would work in the real world, it made sense which were the correct answers. Simon also has a few posts for tips on passing each of's exams. I usually do not support external resources but considering Simon is a trainer, he would not be giving out information that is completely contradictory to what you'd see on the exams like other external resources do. Thanks Simon for your help on this.

Hi everybody, 

If I am not mistaken in PSM 1 there were no questions about Scaled Scrum. But as I read tips to pass PSM 2 from different resources I've realized there are questions about Scaled Scrum or Nexus in PSM 2.  So, is it true or there are no questions about Scaled Scrum in PSM 2? Thx in advance for your assistance.

From what I can remember, neither PSM I not II contained any Nexus questions; however, there are questions related to scaled product development, i.e. multiple teams but not a Nexus.

There is a typo in my comment:  "PSM I not II" should really be "PSM I nor II"
