I have done review question (1st time) in the book quiet well compared to the OCA book (which were challenging, really hard, but good for studying).

In the old way of doing things, we treat our servers like pets, for example Bob the mail server. If Bob goes down, it’s all hands on deck. The CEO can’t get his email and it’s the end of the world. In the new way, servers are numbered, like cattle in a herd. For example, www001 to www100. When one server goes down, it’s taken out back, shot, and replaced on the line.

sounds like your company isn't really doing Scrum and just using some of the terminology.
Is it a good idea that when they are adding tasks for the Spring and they are about to say why so much time for this work which looks less from higher level but looks bigger on knowing implementation details, show them the work break down structure and tell them see this all adds up to those many hours so it will take this much time? But in that case how would you be knowing the work breakdown structure on the day sprint starts when every moment until the day before you were trying to complete the previous sprint tasks which did not even complete. Work breakdown structure would come when you have a day to think about the what would be the low level tasks involved for the user story.
