I'm new to scrum and wanted to go for PSM I certification. As I was going through scrum.org, I see 'SCRUM OPEN' and 'DEVELOPER OPEN' in open assessments. Wanted to know what is the basic difference among them? And for taking PSM I, which assessment should I go for?

Please suggest any book(s) / site(s) where I can read / take more assessments for getting certified.

For the PSM I certification, the SCRUM OPEN is the open assessment to go. Developer Open is more focused on the PSD I exam.

You can find more details here:

You can find the PSM Subject Areas over there where you have plenty of suggestions on what to read.

Personally, I recommend "Agile Estimating and Planning" by Mike Cohn. It helped me when I took the PSM exam.

Good luck!

Assessment and Scrum.org questions should be directed to the other forum. You will likely get a better response there.
