I am preparing for PSM I certification. I read everywhere that we need to pass Open assessment with a score of 100%, which I do regularly. I also try the Practitioner Open assessment which is more difficult. I can't get more than 93%, even after 20 attempts. I have an idea of the questions I have problem with, but since there is no feedback one the test is passed, it is very difficult to learn what I am missing.

I have two questions. How necessary is it to achieve 100% on Practitioner Open assessment to have good chances to pass the PSM I certification? And, any clue how to get answers to the Practitioner Open assessment?

It is very possible to pass PSM without getting 100% on Practitioner Open assessment. A guy in my office passed PSM last week, and he failed Practitioner Open assessment. (much less than 93%)

What is good training material for the Practitioner Open assessment ?
The general free scrum guide was certainly not enough

The study Area's for PSM can be found in the link below.
PSM isn't just a question of the Scrum guide, it sets its standards much higher, they want to take you on a bigger journey.…

I'm preparing for PSPO 1 assessment. I see that it's advised to score 100% repeatedly in open assessments before going for the actual PSPO assessment and I've managed to do the same. But, the questions in open assessments are very limited and are pretty much repeated every time. Is there any other way that I could valiadte my chances of clearing the actual PSPO 1 assessment? Thanks.
