Is Nexus on the 2017 PSM I test?

Hi everybody,

I'm studying for the PSM I test, and noticed that many people posted last year that there were Nexus questions on the exam.

Can anyone who took it recently confirm that this is still the case?

Now that there is The Scaled Professional Scrum Assessment (specifically aimed at the Nexus Framework), I wondered if there were still Nexus questions on the PSM I test.

I'm consistently getting 100% on the Scrum Open and Product Owner Open assessments (as well as Mikhail's awesome quiz: that you all recommended, so thank you for that!) so I don't want to read the Nexus guide right now if I don't have to!

Thank you all!

Hello Bort,

We're glad you're taking these efforts to prepare for the Professional Scrum Master I assessment.

The PSM I Assessment does not ask questions regarding the Nexus, but you may encounter questions regarding multiple teams. It is helpful to remember that scaled Scrum is still Scrum, so it's important to keep the core fundamentals and values of Scrum in mind. Reading the Nexus Guide is not required, but it may help you grasp some of these concepts at a deeper level.

We kindly suggest that you follow as many steps as you can on our Ways to Learn About Scrum page. We hope this helps!
