Do you know how PSPO I exam looks like? I mean is it very similar to PSM I exam, so when I pass PSM I then there is a strong possibility that I will pass PSPO I too?
Open assesment is the same for both, for PSM I this forum is very helpful because many people take a closer look at tricker questions. I can't see such discussions regarding PSPO I questions.
Maybe there is some other really helpful source of information what else should I expect comparing to PSM I.

There is an objective domain here:…

The key focus is to put yourself in the PO mindset - Value, Total Cost of Ownership and Return on Investment.

There is work on creating a PSPO Open.

I found PSPO I more difficult than PSM I because it doesn't focus only on the Scrum framework and its theory but also how you can use Scrum to maximize value and how you can manage the backlog.

I am hoping that it also depends on your history and experience. I have always been more a "PO" than "SM", inverted commas because I am fairly new to Scrum, so I hope that I will have a natural tendency towards the PO knowledge base.

I have to reinforce Oliver's comments: focus on using the product backlog to maximise the delivery of Value. TCO and ROI are ways of monitoring.
