How should I prepare for a certification test?

Each test involves randomly selected, multiple choice questions.  To prepare for a test, you must take the corresponding certification workshop.  For example, once you take a Disciplined Agile Lean Scrum Master workshop you may then take the corresponding Disciplined Agile certification test.

As a prerequisite to the Disciplined Agile Lean Scrum Master course is for each student to purchase and use during the workshop: Choose Your WoW!: A Disciplined Agile Delivery Handbook for Optimizing Your Way of Working (WoW) – Jan 1 2019 by Scott Ambler & Mark Lines, you should expect this book to be a source of questions.

    As a prerequisite to the Certified Disciplined Agile Coach course is for each student to purchase and use during the workshop: An Executive's Guide to Disciplined Agile: Winning the Race to Business Agility (Volume 1) – July 15, 2017 by Scott W Ambler & Mark Lines, you should expect this book to be a source of questions.

    How are test questions marked?

    There are two strategies for awarding points based on the type of question:

    1. True-false questions.  You get one point for a correct answer, zero for the incorrect answer.
    2. Multiple-option questions. There is one correct answer for these questions.  You are awarded one point for each correct answer, zero for an incorrect answer.
    This marking scheme is described in greater detail, with examples, in the following sample test.


    Is there a sample test I can download? 

    We've developed a sample test that you can take to give you a feel for what the two tests are like.  There are 10 questions in the sample test, the answers to the questions at the back of the test, a marking sheet to help you calculate your score, and a detailed description for how your score is calculated (including an example of how a question is marked).  Our recommendation is to print the PDF, take the test, and then calculate your score.
