First of all , thanks to veteran members on clarifying some of the scrum guide statements lucidly.

Well, i dont have to provide any tips on how to clear this exam. Its already posted by many.

This is what i did :
1. Read scrum guide more than 5 times and was able to revise it in 15 min before taking exam
2. I was not familiar with this forum, so i didnt go around this forum much. But , some of the discussion response by "ian mitchell" and "charles bradley" were really good. Many thanks to both of you in keeping this forum active.
3. Took scrum open assessment for 3+ times

Note: i've been a scrum master for past 2 years.

Hearty congratulations.
So just reading the scrum guide is enough? You didn't read any other book?

I have been reading scrum articles to do my scrum master job. Essential scrum is one of the good books to have - not from psm1 perspective, but to practice scrum

I've found the Essential Scrum book to be kind of overloaded with traditional project management thinking, so I generally recommend people against that book. It makes many of the same mistakes made by Cohn, Leffingwell, etc.
