SAFe Product Owner/Product Manager
I have started with the basics ..Scaledagileframework.com - clicked every icon and got lost in the Ocean of information and slept a few times :-)
My Recommendations on the preparation journey for others would be as follows
https://www.visionate.co.nz/ has a few Practise tests on SAFe in general
I used SAFe flashcards created by other users on Quizlets. (I landed on them by doing a random google search)
I read through the Workbook and my class notes a couple of times
I have attempted the practice test couple of times to increase confidence over the material
I guess working in SAFe framework for the past 6-7 years helped in picking the right option during the test (Preparation for this certification was 8 days, hence I mentioned 8-1000 days of preparation :-) )
