I have gone through the book and cleared PSM1 exam successfully. More than the exam, this book helped me in understanding the concepts clearly. The most important part is, there is no deviation with respect to the concepts from Scrum Guide. I enjoyed reading the book mainly because of the structure - questions & answers, examples, etc. Great book, great read. Thanks Musthafa.

This is adecent book for understanding some concepts. But i feel some of the mock questions have answers based on the Author's perspective , and have already seen some posts in Scrum.Org debating the answers. So i would suggest to use this only as a additional reference and not entirely rely on it, always reach out the the Scrum forum to get clarification.

This book is excellent. It contains all the basic concepts of scrum and clearly explains how to pass the certification. Yet it is very fun and easy to read. I passed the PSM1 certification in in the first attempt with (77 out of 80 correct answers) less than one week after the purchase. I followed very carefully all the instructions he gives in the last 3 chapters. Congratulations and thanks a lot Musthafa!!

I would like to thank Musthafa for the excellent work that he has done in authoring the “Scrum Narrative and PSM Exam Guide”. The book is probably the only one out there which explains the dense concepts in the Scrum Guide in a very lucid manner. Though I have been a CSM certified practitioner, the book helped me find gaps in my knowledge and I was able to contextualise the content easily, relating it back to the Scrum Guide. It goes without saying that I cleared PSM 1 in the first attempt with a proficiency level of 95%.

I know it is late but this was due for a long time. Thank you Musthafa for this wonderful little book. This book is easy to read, to the point and extremely valuable for my quest in becoming a Scrum Master. It can cater to any audience be it a person with prior IT knowledge or a person who is new to this wonderful world of Scrum. You can feel Musthafa always available as a constant guide helping you unlearn anti-patterns, reinforce the correct Scrum patterns and help you not any get the PSM1 certification but enrich you with knowledge which you can use in your work and daily life.

Thank you Musthafa for this wonderful little book. This book is designed very simple and helped in reinforcing the concepts then and there in each chapter. Like to highlight that the chapter on Unlearning some of the concepts (e.g. User stories, Hardening sprint, Sprint 0 etc.) Is quite relevant. Infact when i read I could understand the Scrum Guide better after reading the book. Looking forward such simple but effective books on other topics like DevOps also.

I passed PSPO I with 97.5% in first attempt
I was really unsure what material to refer for certification other than Scrum guide. My search of material ended at this book and ‘The Professional Scrum Product Owner: Guide to Pass PSPO 1 Certification’ book by same author. I referred these 2 books to prepare for this exam.
It improved my understanding of scrum and why is scrum (and empiricism) needed. It gave practical guidance about implementing scrum.
I bought pdf and took print as I needed a hard copy to study

This is the most interesting and fascinating book on agile, I have ever read. This is the recommended book if you want to clear PSM1. I cleared my PSM1 using this book solely. It not just explains the concepts clearly but also guides you as to how to prepare for the PSM1 certification. This book is a must have :)
