Passed PSM 1
I just passed the PSM 1 today (88%) at first attempt. The exam was hard so I prepared my detailed review plan for this certification.
I took the 4 Open Assessments from Scrum.org until I got 100% on each of them.
I took the free online Exam simulator until I got 90%+ every time.
I read the forums on Scrum.org site. I reviewed the manuals given on the PSM 1 training for 1 week and most of all I read http://www.scrumguides.org/ every day for two weeks.
Hi, congratulations. I have just passed too. I agree with you that it was hard, the wording on the questions is the most difficult. Once you actually read and understand the question, the answer was straight forward.
Congratulations to both of you. Other than Scrum Guide, what other books you followed. Did you go through any training?
Read the Scrum Guide
You can also down load the Scrum Master Training manual from the mgmtplaza.com.
Go through the Sample test as many times at least 12-15 times.
I attended the vendor (CodeLean Inc.) training for 2 days. The trainer/coach (Joshua Partogi) was excellent.
I Evaluate this Simulated Exam and really liked it.
I think is a good way to pratice and to get prepared for the Exam.
