I purchased this book 4 years ago and (finally) sat on getting my PHR in 2018. I went back and fourth on if I wanted certification, thus the long weight. When I finally decided to take my PHR, I gave myself 45 days to study and this book was the key. Despite the HRCI changing their exams in Aug. 2018, the contents of this book are still highly relevant. I took and passed my PHR on first try. I credit my success to this book as I consider this book to the PHR/SPHR bible.

Questions from the PHR exams were written very similarly to the test questions from the book. Everything you need to know for the PHR is referenced here. I would strongly recommend this book for those interested in taking the PHR/SPHR.

I do wish the test question in the book had more variety. The PHR has scenario based, fill in the blank, matching and multiple choice. Most of the questions were multiple choice.

I''m currently studying and there have been a few times where there is a discrepancy between the text and the chapter reviews. For example, in chapter 5,"Total Rewards," on page 172 there is a definition on Nonmonetary compensation. It defines intrinsic and extrinsic rewards. The text defines an intrinsic reward as "one that encouraged individual employee self- esteem, such as a satisfaction from challenging and exciting assignments." An extrinsic reward is defines as "one in which esteem is achieved from others, such as fulfillment from working with a talented team of peers." There are review questions on page 219. Question 3 asks for an example of an intrinsic reward. Answer D. An exciting assignment IS NOT THE CORRECT ANSWER? Then question 19. asks "Job fullfillment from working with a talented peer group is an example of which of the following types of compensation?" a. Monetary b. Intrinsic, c. Extrinsic, d. Total rewards. The appendix lists intrinsic as the answer and states that "extrinsic rewards are those awards that are driven my external factors, usually in the form of monetary or benefit rewards." This explanation in the appendix on page 497 completely contradicts the text definition in the chapter. There was another question in the previous chapter that also contradicted the text. I''d like to know which definitions are accurate and which are not.

I just finished the 4th Chapter and the review questions, my eyes caught a wrong answer that I need to confirm with you guys. The correct answer to the question 19 ( Total Rewards) is C but once I checked the answers they said it was B, which is completely the opposite explained in the 1st page of total rewards (Nonmonetary Compensation).
The book needs to be reviewed ...

Quick update : I took the exam finally and I passed. The book had an overview of the most important sections and discussed topics, the interactive exams and practices online. I highly recommended.

I didn''t want to spend the $800 for the SHRM online material, so a friend recommended this book and I''m glad I took his advice. I used this book exclusively for studying for my SPHR exam and passed on the first try! Like some of the other reviewers said, it''s a little wordy and can be confusing because information is repeated throughout the book, but if you''re able to get past that and focus on the pertinent iformation, this is a great study guide because not only does it provide all the information that''s in the SHRM material, but it goes further by providinig background information and "real life" stories and case studies to help with your comprehension of the material. The online tests and flash cards are also great tools.

The only negative that I have with the book is that it doesn''t prepare you for the "type" of questions on the exam which are scenario based and highly subjective. To prepare for these typ of questions, I would recommend getting a study guide that has "test prep" questions with an explanation of the answers. I got one for $9.99 on Amazon, and it did an amazing job with preparing me with how to answer these type of questions.

Took and passed the PHR yesterday on the first attempt and I credit this study guide the most. I purchased another study guide which was not nearly as in depth as this was. The practice test questions are very close to the real thing and I really appreciated how the solution explained both the correct and incorrect answers were so. I bought the HRBoK and I felt this reviewed book did the job on its own without needing the HRBoK. I will keep this as reference material in my HR job as it still has value after the test. I recommend that you take as many practice tests as possible. The complete practice test book by the same author should be strongly considered as well. I recommend more that one source of study material; however, if you are only able to use one, let it be this one (and the practice tests).

This is very comprehensive introductory guide, very useful for HR Professionals who just need to brush up their HR knowledge. May also be useful for non core HR professionals who may use the guide as an introduction to the subject, but to get through the exam they will have to read a couple of books in each major knowledge area.
