Preparing for SPS assesment

I want to prepare for the SPS assesment.

Is it sufficient to know the Nexus framework guide by heart (and the regular scrum guide)? Or does the assesment contain other topics?

Hi Dimitri,
I've just taken the SPS assessment and passed.....YES! You will need to know those two guides like the back of your hand. Are they sufficient to pass? Well, I think they are....just. I suggest you read the other recommended reading in the resources section as well. And if you're doing SCRUM and / or scaling it in your work place, that could be beneficial too.
Also, don't forget the open assessments (all of them). They help to build scrum muscle. 100% continuously in each before you go for it.
Good luck!

Thanks for your reply, John. Did you follow the SPS course beforehand or did you do exam without?

I'm also quite interested in those "40 practices to reduce complexity and dependencies at scale" that the course apparently offers but are not in the Nexus guide.
