Blurb- Scrum, as new way of product development, delivers high value. Authentic knowledge body of Scrum is Scrum Guide. It is too dense to absorb without context and correlations. This book reveals Scrum with context and correlations using Active Learning technique. It is all-in-one guide for Professional Scrum Master (PSM 1) aspirants, with comprehensive Scrum material, tips, and 250+ practice questions
Review- I have purchased this book like 3 days ago, Read it after already ready scrum guide 2-3 times (which i will recommend). This is a very good book that clears up a lot of things from scrum guide. I think if I would have read this book before scrum guide, i would have more difficulty, since like others have said, the contents are scattered. However first reading scrum guide couple of times and then reading this book acts as a building block. This will clear up a lot of things that you have read in scrum guide and which apparently you though you got it after reading scrum guide. The scrum guide is high level understanding and this book explains in details, that will help you clear the assessment. Also try the quiz without cheating and the 80 questions assessment in time box. If you clear these quiz and assessment (without cheating), you will make it (in addition to scrum open assessments). And BTW, yesterday I passed the PSM with 98%.
Review- I bought this book after reading recommendations on various scrum forums. Indeed this is an excellent and to the point book. The book is intended to enhance and make the focus on scrum concepts much clear and deeper. The content is precise yet covers all the significant areas of PSM1.
The mock test actually covers a wide range of questions and gives a good practice for the real test.
I read Scrum guide and took few mock tests. Later I bought this book and it has helped me sharpen the scrums skills. I have cleared PSM1 with 94%.
I would give this book 9 on 10. Must buy. Thumbs Up
