Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need any practical work experience as a Product Owner to take the test?
Although it would be helpful, it's not necessary. Online tests verify your theoretical knowledge, so if you study the included resources, you should be able to pass the test. The practical work experience can come later. You may need to follow the links under the practice exam questions and read more about some of those business-related topics if you're not familiar with them.
What subjects does the certification test cover?
The subjects of the certification test questions follow the sections from the practice exam. The test questions are sampled from the following topics: Scrum Theory, Scrum Team, Scrum Events, Scrum Artifacts, Scrum in Practice, and Scrum Product Owners. The SPX™ certification test does not include any questions from the Scrum Developers section.
How much time will I have to complete the test?
The test time limit is 60 minutes. For a test with 80 question, this gives you 45 seconds per question. You can of course finish the test earlier, as soon as you answer all the questions.
Does access to the certification test expire?
No, the certification test doesn't expire. You will have one attempt at taking the test and until you use it, it will be there waiting for you. However, the practice exam that accompanies the test will expire 60 days after the purchase. So after 60 days you will be able to take the certification test, but you won't be able to use the practice exam.
Do I need to complete any training before I take the test?
There are no formal prerequisites for taking the certification test. If you're sure of your knowledge, you can take the test right away, but we do suggest that you try the practice exam, because it might clarify some tricky questions you might find on the test
How should I prepare for the test?
To prepare for the test you should study the Scrum Guide and the additional resources included in your account and then keep taking the practice exam until you consistently score 100%.
Is the test difficult?
The test might appear difficult if you don't prepare properly. For a certification to be respectable, it needs to demonstrate that its holder is a properly trained professional who passed a challenging test. This is why we do not compromise on the quality of the test. However, if you score 100% on the relevant practice exam sections, you shouldn't have any difficulties. The certification test questions are not harder than the practice exam questions.
Will I be able to see the questions I got wrong?
No. The test result will include your overall percentage score and a breakdown of your score by sections. It will not list the questions you got wrong. This is a standard in the testing industry: it ensures fairness to the students and protects the integrity of the test.
Can I print out my certification?
Yes. As soon as you pass your test, the system will create two PDF files of your certification: one in A4 and one in Letter size. You will be able to download and print them on a color printer if you wish. You will have unrestricted access to those downloads; you will be able to download them at any time.
