I've registered for PSPO 1 and have been giving open assessments repeatedly. But after a couple of attempts I I'm only getting repeated questions and scoring a 100% in that doesn't say much about my ability to crack the actual PSPO 1 assessment. Kindly let me know if there are other sources that would help me validate my readiness for the actual assessment.

I've been reading scrum guide and books on Agile Estimation and planning,User Stories Applied For Agile Software Development by Mike Cohn. Do recommend some more good sources for prep on other areas that need attention ( ROI for example).

Finally, let me know if there's a time limit within which I should take the assessment after receiving the password.

Thanks much for your time and patience.

I hope that this helps.

Thanks Simon and Charles. Your sources were very much helpful .

As I had said earlier, I'm looking for a way to test myself before taking the actual assessment. Something that would be at least close to the difficulty level of PSPO1. Currently taking demo tests from I'm sure there's more to it. Would be helpful if someone can mention other sources to validate myself.

Thanks a ton!
