I just got certified Professional Scrum Developer (PSD I). It is my first certification in the Agile world.

I want to admit that it was not an easy exam like pretended. It took me a lot of time to prepare the assessment.

Eventually, I succeeded in the exam and my efforts have been rewarded.

Through this post, I want to share with you what I did to get prepared for the assessment.

Before taking the exam, please re-read the scrum guide, below some advices to pass the exam:

  • If you haven’t done so, register at scrum.org so that you can take the open assessments. Please enter your real name and your email address as these will show on your certificate.
  • Ensure you get 100% to that assessment at https://www.scrum.org/Assessments/Open-Assessments for both Scrum and Developer assessments.
  • A great resource to train to the exam on the Scrum part is available at the following address: http://mlapshin.com/index.php/2015/09/14/psm-i-mock-quiz-is-ready/. Here also try to be close to 100%.
  • Read at least 3 times The Scrum Guide and know everything about Roles, Events and Artifacts.
  • Then Connect to Scrum.org Web Site and take the PSD Exam, taking into account the following:
  • Passing score: 85%
  • Time limit: 60 minutes
  • Number of Questions: 80

If you pass the PSD-I exam and if you have a MCP-ID (Microsoft Certified Professional), please contact your Microsoft Regional Support Center and ask them to add your PSD certificate to your Microsoft Training Transcript.

Good luck!
