A main advantage of Kanban is: 

Minimum work limit that is in the process of creation

There is no limit on the work in progress 

The purpose of the Kanban system is:

Work is faster because of easier communication

The job may be more difficult as the team may not have the necessary competencies

All of the above is wrong 

An indication that a team can be defined as self-organizing can be the following: 

The team follows the rules of the Human Resources department

The team submits regular reports on its work

The team respects its Product Owner

The team and its members choose their tasks themselves, without anyone else assigning them. 

The cross-functionality of the team means:

All team members have had previous experience as designers, programmers, and quality assurance professionals

All team members and all their general skills are sufficient for the development of the whole product

All team members and all their general skills are confirmed through official exams and tests

All of the above is true

  1. Thomas Tylor

    Hello. As far as I understand from the information on the site, for the Scrum Master exam, candidates must also answer questions from the project management sections published in the training materials. However, I note that the sample questions above only seem to be from the Scrum and Agile domains. Does this mean you have not posted sample questions and answers for the online project management practice exam?
  2. BVOP™

    Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. You perfectly understand that the published sample questions and answers in this material are only related to our Scrum and Agile materials from the BVOP™ Agile Guide. The Scrum Master and Agile Director online exams also include questions from the project management sections of the BVOP™ Ultimate Guide that we did not need to post here as there are explicitly published topics in a separate article. Please see the article "Sample Exam Questions for the BVOP Project Management Certification Test". Kind regards.
  3. Brock E Rowlandson

    Hello. I just learned that BVOP Project Management certification, for example, requires knowledge of additional topics from your training materials. Can you tell if the BVOP Scrum Master certification also involves preparation for other topics?
  4. BVOP™

    Dear Brock,
    To receive The BVOP™ Certified Scrum Master certification, you need knowledge of the entire BVOP™ Agile Guide and project management sections of the BVOP™ Ultimate Guide. Advanced training is part of our mission to create more competent professionals.
  5. Maria

    I noticed that the information was published last year. I would like to ask if these issues are still relevant. Have they been updated for 2020 and 2021? Thanks
  6. BVOP™

    Dear Maria, The information is up-to-date and there are no changes in the issues in 2020. No changes are planned for now in 2021. However, let us note again that this is just a sample of all topics.
  7. Adam Kowalski

    I don't understand why you showed the exam questions publicly on the website?
  8. BVOP™

    We do not show the correct answers. If you look carefully, you will only notice questions and the possible answers. But not what is the correct answer. We do not hide our exam questions. Any of our users can currently run a mock exam and see random questions for themselves.
  9. Thomas King

    Hello. I would like to ask if it is 100 percent sure that these questions will be taken during my certification exam.
  10. BVOP™

    The certification exams are designed to test your knowledge and understanding of the subject matter, and the questions will be drawn from a pool of potential questions. It's important to thoroughly study the exam material and understand the concepts, principles, and practices of Scrum to increase your chances of passing the exam. While you may come across similar questions during your exam preparation, there is no guarantee that they will be on the actual exam. Therefore, it's important to focus on understanding the material rather than memorizing specific questions and answers.

    Hello! Thank you for sharing this sample from the BVOP Scrum Master certification test. It's great to have a glimpse of the questions to get a better understanding of the certification exam.

How much time is allocated per question to ensure sufficient consideration and response? In terms of the mock test you mentioned, could you please elaborate on the number of questions included and the range of topics covered?
