For PSPO exam preparation, I used Udemy courses Scrum Product Owner Certification Prep by Valentin Despa and Scrum Product Owner Exam Prep by Hiro Takashimya. Also used Practice Tests from Mikhail Lapshin website and volkerdon Exam Simulator and Scrum.org Open Assessment to practice more. Practice Tests and repeated reading of Scrum Guide helped me to pass with ease. Exam questions were mostly familiar after doing so many practice tests.
Planning take PSPO1 in this week and have completed PSM1 4 weeks back. Have seen that practice tests for PSM1 and PSPO1 are almost same and PSPO also suggest to read SCRUM Guide. So do we need to study something extra to pass PSPO1 ?
I have read the Scrum guide twice all through and skim read it at least twice more (it is really short). I have also read a few different online resources and done a udemy course that largely regurgitated the Scrum Guide verbatim. Although I have only done a few practice tests, it seems to me the PSPO tests covers far more material than the Scrum Guide covers? While I have only just started my Scrum journey, I seem to think the Scrum Guide is just the tip of the iceberg and to pass the PO certification requires a lot more reading? Otherwise my, mem... I forget what its called, is worse than I, what were we talking about?
I've practiced many times the open assesments (all of them, except the one for dev). Mikhail Lapshin's assessments are very good. I may say that based on his assessments I've understood better scrum. So I've practiced all of these untill I understood them and scored 100%. I've found some other tests on the internet which helped me to clarify some items.
What I'm trying to say is that it would be easy to crack the exam if one prepares well and practices few mock tests in my opinion. The mock tests also increases overlooked concepts which helps even beyond exam. 2b1af7f3a8
