Strike while the iron is hot, so once the login details were received I took the exam that night. Given the great course and my prior practical experience with plenty of reading, I was pretty confident. The fact the exam is online, untimed and multiple choice makes it less daunting than the last time I took an exam, many years ago.
Short story is yes I passed and am now a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM). Not quite a perfect score from the 35 questions, but close enough. The exam was much as I expected. In most questionsm of the 4 potentials 1 or 2 are generally obviously wrong, and often the correct answer id the nost correct of those remaining.
For those from a more traditional development background, watch out for phrases like ‘project manager’ which is not a defined role in Scrum. Understand who are the participants in scrum, like the development team, ScrumMaster and Product Owner. Get a good grasp on the various scrum gatherings like daily standup, planning and retrospectives. Finally the artifacts like the backlog (product and sprint) and the burn down chart.
