I have been talking about and sharing resources to help people with the HR certification exams for over a year now, and in that time I have officially promoted one specific tool to those looking for a fully-loaded study resource–HRCP. Recently I saw that they were updating their website and making some changes to their offerings to help people pass the PHR and SPHR exams. I reached out to them for some specifics that I will share below. Be sure to read to the end so you can find out how to win something special from HRCP!
You can take advantage of several of the free tools they provide. With the high cost of certification in general, we all like a little free, right? :-) (FYI: if you want a discount on the HRCP materials, see this page for more info.)
- Create a free account, take the free practice exam, Customers who have purchased theÂ HRCPÂ Program will have access to twice as many practice questions in the new Online Testing System!
- Thinking about studying without the aid of a group? Check out the self study guide (PDF)
- Not sure if you need a lot of time to study? Check out the study schedules they have put together for different test preparation styles.
- They have aÂ group on LinkedIn so you can share ideas and find others who are studying as well.
- In case you’re wondering, their 2011 materials are already updated and shipping (that was fast!).
- The newly upgraded testing systemÂ provides twice as many practice questions as part of the HRCP Program, totaling 800 questions (for the same price!).
Okay! So, HRCP is going to give away a free 100 question practice exam and I’m working with them to make this a recurring contest. For today, though, I have one of those exams to give away to someone. Interested?
