Detailed Review Of Preparation

PSM II needs one to be very strong in basics of Scrum and in application of these concepts in a real situations, as most of the questions are situational based. I completed by PSM I back in 2017 and had been practicing as Scrum Master for last couple of years (but not completely the way as Scrum preaches due to the limitations in my environment).  So, this was a strong reason for me to refresh my basics and I opted for the training session on Advanced scrum master conducted by It was very interactive and created an opportunity to share experience with other professionals.

After the training, I did the below preparation for 5days (spending about 2 to 3 hours per day) before I attended the exam.

  1. Scrum Guide
  2. Nexus Guide
  3. Scrum Open, Nexus Open and Product Owner Open assessments few times
  4. All 3 Scrum quizzes on
  5. Practice exams on 

In a nutshell, very clear understanding of the scrum basics and practicing it the way Scrum preaches, will definitely make one clear PSM II on the first try. I got through with 97%
