I’ve passed PSM II exam recently. Now I want to share my experience to individuals who want to prepare for this exam.

When I compare PSM II with PSM I, I should say level II is exponentially harder than level I. So, don’t take the exam before complete preparation. In order to pass the exam you need to do following steps:

1-     Read Scrum guide carefully word by word.

2-     Read Nexus guide carefully.

3-     Read book “Coaching Agile Teams” by Lyssa Adkins

4-     Read book “Agile Retrospectives” by Esther Derby

5-     Read book “Scrum Mastery” by Geoff Watts

6-     Read book “Agile Estimating and Planning” by Mike Cohn

7-     Read book “User Stories Applied” by Mike Cohn

8-     Do all scrum open tests (scrum, product owner, developer, nexus).

9-     Read all posts about PSM II in forum.

10-  Read blog ”The Scrum Values” by Gunther Verheyen

11-  Read blog ”There’s Value in the Scrum Values” by Gunther Verheyen

12-  Read blog ”5 Metaphors to Explore the Value of Scrum Values” by Naghesh Sharma

13-  Read blog ”4 Ways to Coach with the Scrum Values” by Stephanie Ockerman

14-  Read blog ”4 Key Flow Metrics and How to Use them in Scrum’s Events” by Yuval Yeret

15-  Read blog ”Definition of Done” by Gunther Verheyen

16-  Do all free scrum sample tests of Mikhail Lapshin

17-  Do 8 PSM II sample tests of by Simon Kneafsey

18-  Manage the time carefully and be in your highest energy state when you want to take the the exam.

Good luck
