Detailed Review Of Preparation
After working for several years as a Scrum Master, but without having opted for any certification, I decided to take the step that I was missing to complete my curriculum and strengthen my role, demonstrating to many people that my good work on a daily basis did not require a certification to justify my work (although many are determined to have it). I have also demonstrated to myself that experience and values are infinitely more important than knowing all the theory by heart.
Well, after this brief introduction, my preparation for the exam has consisted of taking the 3-day online course offered by Álex Ballarín Latre and ITNOVE (the company that offers the official Scrum.org courses). I followed all their advice and practised until I almost answered by heart the Open assessment of Scrum Master, Product Owner and Nexus.
I have read the Scrum guide a couple of times more, as well as the Nexus guide and, above all, I have reviewed all the activities carried out during the course, as they have been based on real experiences and have helped a lot to understand the different scenarios that arise in the exam.
I took the exam at 9:30 am and only three days after the course ended.
The exam is demanding with questions and the answers can easily be confusing if not paid attention.
I wish good luck to all of you who apply for this Certification and I hope that I have helped with my experience.
