I've passed the PSM-1 certification with 91.3% scoring (73/80).
I want to thank - Ian Mitchell, Christiaan Koster, Nitin Khanna, tim muttitt, Luis Javier and everyone who has helped me in preparation and guided me with proper explanation when ever needed.

I still need to improve in certain areas indicated in the result but I will be more than happy to share knowledge and offer guidance in anyway I can.

Thanks again and lets SCRUM

Thanks Luis.

Hi Ishfaque,
I took almost 3 weeks to study for PSM-1. I have prior experience of working as developer in scrum team, so I could relate to the terms in Scrum-Guide. Nevertheless, this book is really simple to understand. Please remember every word in this book mean something and is there for specific purpose. Read it as many times as you can. I would have read it almost 10-12 times.

When you think you have understood the concept give the Scrum Open Assessment. Its has limited number to questions in its bank and if you try it more than 2 or 3 times you will see the questions repeating.

Also try Scrum Practitioner Open Assessment. It wouldn't give you the answers in the end but will tell you how much you scored.

Read the forum, ask questions here which you have difficulty answering.

Read blogs on internet.

I took TestTakerOnline account. They have high question bank and is based purely on scrum guide.

Good Luck with your learning and let us know if you have any question.

Hi Ishfaque

That’s sound advice from Nikhil.

I would also recommend that you read this book by Gunther Verheyen. He manages the assessments for and has a very deep knowledge of the core principles of Scrum. It’s an enlightening read:…

Good luck with your PSM I.
