Hi All,

 

For those who have done the PSM3, do you have any advice on knowing if/when you're ready to take it?  I took my PSM1 in 2015 and passed with 95%, I just took the exam no formal course (to tick a box for a recruiter).  I've just taken the PSM2 now and passed with 90%, no formal course again.  I have been on Scrum courses pre my first exam but not since.  I have often found myself in the role of coach and teach people in Scrum including Scrum Masters (which I find really makes you think about it).  

I am not sure about the PSM3 level in comparison, and honestly, essay questions scare me as I am heavily dyslexic and don't have a good track record with them in general.  I am not opposed to going on a formal training course or two (in fact I am very interested in the Scrum with Kanban one but not sure what "level" of course would help me for the PSM3.

There is only a PSM-II training for the PSM track. I can really really recommend it. It helped me ace my PSM-II and I learned a lot from it

Hi Scott,

I created a post on this topic after I took the PSM III and I actually just provided an update in the comments.  I hope you find this useful:
