i was wondering on which open assessments i should focus while preparing for my pms-1 certification. i feel like scrum open and product owner open fits well to the information i find in the scrum guide / suggested readings, while the developer open questions go far beyond what i read so far.

of cause, taking the open assessments is only part of the way i prepare, but i was still wondering...


thank you a lot and have a nice weekend!

Scrum open for sure. Get 100% on it several times in a row. PSPO can also help you.

All the best!

any experience if the developers open is relevant?

The Developer open isn't necessary yet may give you some additional insight. Study the Scrum Guide and Scrum Master learning path. A different view of the Scrum Guide is the Scrum Guide Reordered:

My tip: don't worry about the mock exam, focus on being a better Scrum Master by learning as much as you can. The PSM badge is a nice achievement, don't get me wrong, but it's just a start to a long journey of mastery. The goal is to learn and improve your knowledge, not collect a badge.

Are questions are descriptive??

@Ravishekhar no, the questions are factual in nature, but do require that you understand Scrum and how to apply it.
