I'm done with mock test online!!!!   Way too confusing!   I think scrum.org should sell a few mock tests. It would create a small revenue but also it would discourage other third party providers to screw up what is supposed to be a straight forward exam.

My question is I read on here that people do the open assessment over and over to get %100 but aren't the questions on the assessments always the same?   I just finished my third one with %93 but I don't even need to read the question I just know the right answer from memory.

I am in the same point

Questions are always the same, always finishing with 100% or 93%... should I go for the assesment? It makes no sense to answer de same questions so many times

The questions change, primarily they are the same but you'll get a few different ones in there. You should also get to where you can knock out the test with 100% in under 5 minutes, then get to where you get 0% with the goal of selecting the wrong answers so you know for certain the right answers AND the wrong answers.

Out of 30 there's maybe 2 or 3 that will rotate.

 

5 minutes is long   I think I finished the last one in 3 i just went for speed but it's not really the goal.   You just need to glance over and you get the right answer.

Ok so another thing, do you fully understand why the correct answers are correct and more importantly, why the incorrect answers are wrong?? The open assessment is a mere snapshot of the real exam and you need to make sure you know both right and wrong answers and what makes them right and wrong.

Other one I would suggest is this one

But that's it

My approach would be to take time during the Open Assessment to review each question and consider why each of the answers I did not select were incorrect.

It isn't sufficient preparation to retake a practice test over and over and answering based on memory from past practice exams, or to try and complete the exam faster than previous attempts.   Neither approach promotes learning, which is key for exam preparation.
