What Do Previous SHRM Test Prep Students Say?

SHRM Exam Prep Student Testimonial

"Dennis’ HR expertise when reviewing the materials, and his constant positive encouragement ("read and you will pass") were invaluable. This course is an essential part of successfully preparing for the SHRM-CP. Regardless of how much of a self-starter you are, this class helps keep you focused, motivated and on task as you review the SHRM Learning System materials and practice tests. Dennis Carr is extremely knowledgeable and provides thorough explanations, and practical applications, of the material. This course is worth every penny and I doubt that I would have passed without it." C
Chris Antonetti, SHRM-CP

"Thanks for tips on test management. I used the full 4 hours with only 5 minutes to review marked questions (changed 2). I didn't take any breaks. When I finished the exam and got the "PASSED" notification I almost started to cry from excitement and exhaustion. Thank you so much for all your guidance and support. Could not have done it without your class and study recommendations." 
Connie, SHRM-SCP

"Thank you so much for your coaching in class, online, via email and individual follow up. I could not have passed my SHRM-CP without your instruction, guidance and encouragement.

The Situational Judgement scenarios were loooong. The questions and possible answers were lengthy and number of questions associated with each were few (2 - or 3), consistent with other feedback.

The most important advice I have is pace yourself in the test. Be aware of the clock, but don't let it rule you. I answered all test questions with 9 minutes to spare. As I reviewed marked questions I found that I should trust my frontal cortex responses and stuck with them. Reviewing the HR Competencies book, highlighted sections of each and glossaries of each was a help - good reinforcement/refresher. I am curious to see what my official results report.

There was no part of the test that I felt was a cinch. It took using SHRM best practice mindset and honest process of elimination.

Thanks so much for all your guidance and support. And thank you to those who've shared their feedback on the class page, these emails and of course the in person three day class. You all are awesome."
Stephanie, SHRM-CP
"I am happy to report that I passed my SHRM-CP test today! As was reported by others, the situational judgment questions were quite lengthy and only had a few questions after each one. I remembered your advice about framing my answers in the context of the best practice of a department head at a large, global organization. I took the day off work yesterday and reviewed the glossary items, employment law resource and accounting formulas in the book in final preparation for my test today. Some of the questions on the test seemed very unfamiliar and unlike anything else we had studied. I chose to mark those items and go back to them after completing the rest of the exam. Those items seemed easier to answer the second time around. I reviewed those and others I had marked after I got through all the questions.

Your advice about how to pace yourself through the test definitely helped. I finished checking the marked questions and submitted my test with just a few seconds to spare. Like others who passed, I only changed a few answers during my review.

Thank you so much for your guidance and encouragement during the class. Your advice was spot-on and your encouragement to keep pace with the materials even though it seemed overwhelming at first due to my personal family emergency issues definitely helped me to finish my class time well and gave me a couple of weeks to review before my actual test.
My only regret for the class is that I am located so far away and that precluded me from attending the in-person intensive sessions on campus. If schedules permit, it might be helpful to have the in-person classes on consecutive days in the future so that those who live out of town might be able to attend.

Thank you again for all your guidance during the class."
