Scrum Master certification - practice test questions
Are you about to take your first Professional Scrum Master certification exam, then this is the package for you.
Be under no illusion, exams like the PSM1 and CSM exam are not easy to pass. Even a person, currently in a Scrum Master role will need to prepare and study.
These mock exam questions are perfect for agile project managers who want to have a complete and thorough grounding of the Scrum guide, the scrum body of knowledge.
(Note: This test has been updated to the 2020 version of the Scrum Guide. Please note that there are many subtle changes from the 2017 guide and these questions and answers reflect the changes)
We recommend three stages to complete before taking your first Scrum Master exam
1) Take my accompanying Udemy Scrum Master 101 course (Search under my name "David Keenan"!!)
2) Read the Scrum Guide
3) Take this Scrum Master practice test and make sure you understand all the questions and answers.
Important: Each question also has the corresponding Scrum Guide answer, to allow you to completely understand both the answer and the context.
There are 6 practice tests. I would recommend you take Test 1, then review your answers against the correct answers from the Scrum guide before moving onto the next. This is the key learning from each test. Not only is it a practice, but it also gives you the ability to revise the Scrum guide. In many ways, it is a second pass at reading the Scrum Guide.
It focuses on all aspects from Scrum history, definition, theory and Values and moving to deep dive into the the 3 Scrum roles, the 5 Scrum events and the 3 Scrum Artifacts.
We designed these mock exam questions to act as a core learning tool to utilize, before sitting your first scrum master certification. Our aim is that at the end of this course, you will be able to pass an exam like the professional Scrum master (PSM1) exam*
It is a new course developed in 2019 and specifically designed around the Scrum guide, the definitive Scrum body of knowledge. We present it in a way that helps you to fully understand Scrum Master role and also, to give the information needed to pass certification exams based on the Scrum guide.
*This course is perfectly suited to those about to take their initial Scrum Master certification

I'm Dave Keenan. My journey with agile began roughly 12 years ago, just a few years after its inception. From the moment I dipped my toes into it, I found myself enthralled by its potential to revolutionize the way we collaborate.
What struck me was its logic, simplicity, and, dare I say, its emphasis on people over processes, rather than viewing individuals as mere cogs in a machine.
Over the years, I've donned various hats - from a project manager and a Scrum Master to a product owner, and now, a leading agile coach. I've had the privilege of bringing agile practices to some of the largest companies, including Amazon and Accenture, while continually refining my understanding of agile methodologies.
My passion lies in championing human-centered approaches that foster better, more collaborative work environments. Through my experiences and insights, I aim to help teams unlock their full potential in the agile world.
