Hello Vladimir,

Each password is good for one attempt only at our professional-level assessments, so we recommend you do as much as you can to prepare before starting an assessment session. You can find good study tips on the following page:

However, we would suggest that you refer to the subject areas score breakdown (bar graph) that was provided once you concluded the assessment and also in the email you were sent after the completion of your assessment. This bar graph displays how well you scored in each of the subject areas assessed on the assessment. We encourage you to then navigate to and review the PSM I Subject Areas page available on our website at the following link:…

We hope you found this information helpful!
