Detailed Review Of Preparation

I have passed SAFe 4.6 on October 2019 and decided to upgrade to SAFe 5.0 this summer. The upgrade exam was from the new topics only. I'll share my journey to prepare for both. 

1. Take Leading SAFe course

I took it last year for SAFe 4.6 certification. Very helpful

2. Read the preparation materials you get from the course

You will get some PDFs. 

3. Bookmark this website: Scaled Agile Framework

Click on every item on the big picture (Full SAFe). Take notes on the competences (very important!). 

4. If you upgrade from V4.6 to V5.0, you must understand all the items from here:

What's new in 5.0

5. Take the preparatory exam when ready. You should score around 85-100% to be ready. The exam is a bit more difficult.

6. Use Kahoot application for more SAFe questions. 

7. Take the exam when you are fresh. 

I have scored 100% on SAFe 4.6 and 97% on SAFe 5.0 upgrade exam. The last one was a bit more difficult.

That's it! Good luck!
