Not a very realistic sample test
on December 21, 2010
I just passed the PHR on 12/10/10. I used this book two days before taking the test and found at the time the questions in this book were much easier compared to other sample test materials. Since taking the test, I can confirm that the questions in this book were considerably easier and more simple than the questions on the test. The questions in this book offer very obvious answers to questions, while the real PHR test attempts to trick you up on most questions. I got 185 out of 200 right, or 92.5% right, from this book. While I do not know the actual test score or number I got right on the PHR (I don't even know if I will ever know, they just said I preliminarly passed and will get a final notice in 2-3 weeks), I would guess I would be in the upper 70's or low 80% percent. The only way this book can hurt you is to lull you into a fall sense of security that you know the material, just watch out for that and you should be OK! Good Luck!
