the best prep book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PHR / SPHR Professional in Human Resources Certification Study Guide (Paperback)
I work full time as a HR Generalist, spend 9 to 10 hr each work day at the office and commute 4 hours to and from work. It was very hard to find time to study. I read the review on Amazon.com and purchased two books for my PHR/SPHR prep. After six months of study, mostly during the weekend, put in about total of 90 to 100 hours intermittently over 6 months stretch, I passed the exam the first time on 1-28-2011.
One of the books I purchased was Ann Bogardus'"PHR/SPHR Study Guide". I repeatedly studied it and followed the instructions on how to best study for the exam. Did lots of research on subjects or concepts I was not familiar with. I must say Ann's book is the best prep book on market. But you have to honestly study it thoroughly.
The other book I purchased is not even worth mentioning. Too much mistakes through the book.
