Congratulations Kiron, on your new achievement.
All the very best!!
Thanks Anish - I think that's it for certifications for me for this year from a purely financial if not from a time & stress perspective!
Congrats Kiron. Yes I heard the PSMII is a lot harder by several degrees. But it's very interesting you say it's harder than than the PMI-ACP exam. Thanks for that update.
Congratulations! Was taken back by the PMI-ACP comment as well.
Thanks Sante & Andrew!
Let's put it in perspective - the ACP is a longer exam, but covers a broader base of material and hence can't get into as much detail as the PSM II does.
The passing requirements for the PSM II are also higher than those (I assume) for the ACP - the former is 85% out of 30 questions whereas I'm guessing the ACP is closer to 60% out of 120 questions.
The PSM II exam has many questions which ask you to pick two or three choices from a list of four or five possible answers. I find those types of questions to be harder than PMI's standard one out of four. It did, however, have a couple of True/False questions.
I wrote the ACP in a little under 45 minutes out of three hours. The PSM II took me roughly the same time out of 1.5 hours for a quarter of the number of questions as the ACP.
It's possible the ACP might get tougher after March 26, but right now, I felt the PSM II was at least twice as hard...
Congratulations Kiron for been among the affluent clientele out of hundred so now you are ((lacko main aik hain)).
Congratulations on passing the exam.
I'm considering passing one of agile related exam. Why have you choose SCRUM PSM
Thanks Riyadh - you'll need to translate that last part for me :-)
Thanks Vincent - having got the ACP & CDAP/CDAI but wanting to get past those gatekeepers who insist on a Scrum-based credential, it was a choice between Scrum Alliance's credentials and Scrum.org.
The former uses credentials as a way to sell training whereas the latter doesn't require a candidate to take their courses.
Having worked with Scrum for over a decade, I didn't see the value in paying for a costly two day course which wasn't going to teach me something new so I decided to align with Scrum.org which cost me only $400 for two credentials (PSM I and PSM II).
I would still feel the ACP is the one credential "to rule them all" until the Agnostic Agile movement comes out with its own credentials...
Congratulations & thanks for the update. It is very informative and you actually encouraged me to sit for the ACP exam so I am now considering doing so after the GPM-b.
