I am glad to announce that I passed my Professional Scrum Master (PSM I) Certification with a score of 95%.
Although my field of expertise is in Construction & Real Estate Development but I’ve always had interest in Scrum and Agile. The PSM I is just the first step but it is indeed a very big step into this domain and it is important for any professional to expand their field of expertise.
That being said, I would like to share my journey towards achieving the PSM I Certification:
1- Read the Scrum Guide and understood everything in details. It is a 16 page guide but very conclusive in terms of the scrum basics.
2- Read some additional documents and articles like the Nexus Guide.
3- Completed some simulation exams such as Open Scrum which is available for free.
4- Total study time was 1 week (Average of 3 Hours per Day)
1- The exam is 1 Hour and consists of 80 Multiple Choice Questions.
2- It tests your experience & knowledge beyond the Scrum Guide.
3- Majority of the questions were of moderate difficulty. A lot of questions were situational questions, others were straight forward.
