We know how important it is to get a passing score on this assessment, and we want to do everything we can to help you achieve your goal. Follow these tips and you will be well on your way to getting the certification you need!

 

Here are the tips:

Start by studying the Scrum Guide. This guide is essential to understanding the basics of Scrum, and it will give you a good foundation on which to build your knowledge. If you can’t understand something in the guide, don’t hesitate to reach out to a friend or colleague who can help explain it to you.

 

Tip #

Once you have a solid understanding of the Scrum Guide, it’s time to start practicing! There are many online tools and resources that can help you do this. We recommend using a tool like Agile Poker to get started. This tool will allow you to estimate story points for user stories, which is an important skill to master for the PSM I assessment.

When it comes to studying for an assessment, it is important to create a study plan and stick to it. Dedicating a certain amount of time each day or each week to studying will help ensure that you are making progress and not getting overwhelmed. Having a plan will also help you stay focused and on track. Remember to schedule breaks into your study plan so that you can take a break from studying and relax. Finally, make sure to review your notes and material regularly so that you are prepared for the assessment.

One important skill that can help you succeed on the assessment is timeboxing. Timeboxing is a Scrum technique that helps you manage your time effectively so that you can get more work done in less time. This skill involves setting a timer for a specific amount of time and then working on a task until the timer goes off. After the timer goes off, you take a break before starting on the next task. Timeboxing can help you stay focused and avoid distractions so that you can complete tasks more efficiently. This skill will come in handy on the assessment, as you will be given a limited amount of time to complete the exam. If you practice timeboxing, you will be able to make the most of the time you are given and maximize your chances of success.

 

Tip #

Make sure you are familiar with all of the Scrum artifacts. These include the product backlog, sprint backlog, burn-down chart, and velocity chart. You should know what each artifact is used for and how to interpret it. This information will be helpful on the exam, as well as in your future career as a Scrum Master.

 

Tip #

In order to be successful in Scrum, it is important to be familiar with not only the artifacts, but also the roles. The Scrum Master is responsible for leading and managing the Scrum team. They are the ones who make sure that the team is working efficiently and effectively towards the goal. The Product Owner is responsible for representing the interests of the stakeholders. They are the ones who decide what features will be implemented and when. The Development Team is responsible for actually developing the product. They are the ones who do the coding and testing. It is important to know who is responsible for what so that you can be sure that everyone is on the same page and working together towards a common goal.

 

Tip #

Once you have a good understanding of the basics, it’s time to start learning about advanced topics. These include topics like estimation techniques, release planning, and product backlog refinement. You can find plenty of resources on these topics online, so be sure to do your research.

 

Tip #

A key part of understanding Scrum is seeing how it works in action. To get a better sense of this, we recommend reading case studies and articles that feature Scrum teams. These examples will show you the ins and outs of how Scrum is used in real-world projects. You’ll get a better grasp of the challenges that Scrum teams face, as well as the successes they achieve. This first-hand knowledge will be invaluable as you start to use Scrum in your own work.

 

Tip #

If you want to learn more about Scrum, it’s important to get some first-hand experience. One way to do this is to shadow someone who is already using Scrum. This will give you a chance to see how the system works in practice and ask any questions you might have. Alternatively, you can join a local Scrum user group or attend a Scrum conference. These events are a great way to meet other people interested in Scrum and learn more about the system. If you’re serious about taking the PSM I assessment, these experiences will be invaluable.

 

Tip #

Last but not least, don’t forget to take practice exams! There are many online resources that offer practice exams, and we highly recommend taking advantage of them. By taking practice exams, you will get a feel for the types of questions that will be on the actual assessment. This will help you prepare mentally and increase your chances of passing the exam.
