Studying for the Scrum PSM II Exam

I’m just logging the resources that I’m using to study for the PSM II.

Remember to also study the Nexus (scaling scrum to multiple teams).  This is required as per the definition of PSM II:

Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II)– knows how to be Scrum Master for one or more Scrum teams, understands the underlying principles of Scrum and can effectively apply Scrum in complex, real-world situations.

I’ve listed the resources I’ve used to study for the SPS exam here.
