This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Darcy DeClute's Scrum Master Certification Guide: The Definitive Resource for Passing the CSM and PSM Exams and have Darcy DeClute on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm preparing to the part I, before I start reading the books about it I decided to take a mock at whizlabs to measure my weakness areas,
well i've been surprised with 60% out of the 71% required to the exam, so I decided to stop and get back into the books to study my weaknesses,
a week later i finished my studies and decided to take back to the mocks, well, I've scored 74 / 76 / 68 / 86 / 78 %
I was wondering if is time to the real exam ? I already have 4 certifications (OCA, OCP, WCD and JPAD) for this reason i skipped the web tier topic of the book
and of course i've revised my worng answers and a week later i retake the mocks and socred above 90% in all
what about it guys, it's time to go to exam at monday ?
Everyone is different, but at least when I took part I, I felt that the test was a bit harder than the Whizlabs simulator. I even think I scored lower on the real test than on my last runs on the simulator. On other Oracle tests I've taken it has normally been the opposite. The OCMJEA test has some very subjective questions, which make it harder in my opinion. When I did the test there was no book for the version 6 of the test, but if there had been one, I probably would have read it cover to cover.
Hi Ritika Prasad,
the Whizlabs questions are easier than the exam but it gives a good notion of how it is.
I've purchased the exam with a retake promotion, good for me because i've failed with 70% out of 71%, this made me very angry at the moment, 2 weeks later I came back and passed with 80%
The exam questions are very subjective like Andres Olarte said.
And i've to tell you guys i didn't found any book that really covers the exam like the other certifications, there are some topics that you have to search on the internet because they aren't totally covered in the books.
Now i've submitted the assignment and scheduled the essay for tomorrow.
