The HR Review Study Programs:
“I passed my SPHR and owe it 100% to you and the way your materials are laid out. I am ADHD and would literally become so frustrated trying to read the SHRM materials that I would throw the book. Your materials extracted the data I needed to concentrate on…. Even more helpful was the practice question explanations. Invaluable to help me understand the logic behind the actual question!!
THANK YOU and add me to your success stories!”
“Wanted to say thank you to you and HR Review!!! I passed my PHR and SPHR exams in 6 months with using your resources as additional study tools”
-Rume Joy Azikiwe, MHRM, PHR, SPHR
“I took my SPHR test last weekend and passed! Thank you so much for all of your help. I’m sure the HRReview questions helped.”
Lisa B., SPHR, Director of Human Resources at La Fonda on the Plaza
- Leanne D. SPHR, GPHR
“I wanted to let you know that I took the GPHR on May 27th and I passed. Thanks for all your materials and lectures, they clearly worked!”
- Kristin B., GPHR
“Even with a MSHR degree and 7+ years of working in HR, I’m not sure I’d have passed the SPHR certification exam without taking the HR Review exam preparation class.
The class is perfect for busy, working professionals. For each of the six weeks you focus on one of the six sections of the exam. That and the practice exams really helped me concentrate my efforts.
I felt confident that I would pass the SPHR exam and I did, the very first time.”
- Jorene Richards, SPHR, Manager of Training and Development at Loyola University
“I passed my SPHR test yesterday! The hundreds of quality exam style questions with full explanations really made a huge difference in the results.
I even let SHRM know about HR Review in the comments section where they ask you to select which product I used to prepare. Hopefully at some point soon they will list HR Review!”
- Dave Tames, SPHR
“I took the PHR certification test on Saturday and passed! Thank you so much for your class and all of the HR Review material.
I believe the quality of your sample questions, basic, intermediate and advanced, greatly helped me to prepare for the type of questions on the test. This helped me to be more relaxed and prepared when going into the exam.
- Marina Sabol, PHR
“I took my PHR back in May 2008 and failed by 30 points, but I was determined to try again. Today I sat for my PHR exam and PASSED! You would not believe the excitement I felt when I saw PASS on that screen.
I started to cry as I felt so blessed and shocked at the same time. I remembered there were other people in the room so I just contained my emotion.
The test was difficult and wasn’t exactly what I expected, but nonetheless I made it thought successfully. After 15 years of experience I feel truely proud to finally say I am PHR Certified.
For me this was more of a personal, internal satisfication that I needed. I now have a new found confidence and I am going to push myself further than ever before.
Thank you so much for all of your helpful emails, blog posts, and study tips! I will be sharing HR Review with all of my colleagues! =)”
- Madeline Hernandez, PHR
“I just wanted to let you know that I took my PHR exam on Friday and PASSED on the first try! Thank you so much for the wonderul materials provided in the two courses that I took. I don’t think the exam would have been so easy without the CDs and workbooks I got from HR Review.
I’m so glad I took the time to prepare for this well enough to pass the first time and I’m so excited to finally be PHR certified. Thank you so much!
- Lorie Seay, PHR
“I couldn’t help smiling while taking the exam, your prep questions were the perfect preparation. There were no surprises…it was all covered in your book. Your class was great. It kept the material interesting and was all so “right on” for the material covered on the exam. Thanks for your help!”
- Erin Colon, PHR 2010 - ADP
“I passed the SPHR exam! Thanks to you and your team with the “Last Minute Prep Course”. It was very beneficial to my studies!!
- Chasity Grauel, SPHR, 2010, Louisville, KY – Law Firm HR Director
“I took the HR Review Start Smart course in April and have been studying and utilizing the HR Review resources until my test today, June 12th. I am very pleased with the number of resources HR Review had to offer and used each and every one. I studied the outlines in the Workbook, listened to the audio CD in the car and went through the flashcards on the computer to help me understand the terms.
I listened to the recorded coaching session and utilized the on-line exams in the days prior to taking the PHR exam today and I passed! The variety of available resources made studying for this exam easier and I believe they all helped me in successfully preparing for the exam. I have already started to recommend this course to my colleagues who are aspiring to obtain the PHR certification. Thanks, HR Review!”
- Faith Evangelista, PHR - ADP
“I PASSED THE PHR EXAM ON SATURDAY JUNE 28, 2008. This is Richard Williams from the Caribbean and it was certainly a pleasure meeting you wonderful and inspiring ladies at the SHRM conference. My travel to Chicago was a rewarding one and the turning point for me was using the PHR Practice Exam the night before the exam.
Your explanation for the answers were great and it set the tone for thinking through the exam questions on exam day. I am contemplating doing the SPHR in December and I look forward to purchasing the workbook and other material. ”
-Richard Williams, PHR
“I reviewed the WORKBOOK thoroughly at the SHRM Conference and purchased it to prepare for the exam. I’m so thrilled that I made the decision to do this as I felt the HRReview program made taking the certification exam easy! I don’t think I would have passed without the help of your materials and coaching. Thank you, HR Review.”
- Kenny Cook, SPHR, Aiken, SC
“Even after 25+ years in the HR field, the Last Minute Course was valuable in preparing for the SPHR exam. The organized and thorough coverage of material along with the professional presentation helped me to prepare and succeed. Thanks!”
- Diana Ragsdale, SPHR, Director of Human Resources, Cedar Lake Lodge, Louisville, KY
“I found your two and 1/2 day (“Last Minute”) review course extremely helpful! I think your preparation course and materials covered everything on the exam, and the review helped solidify what was covered. I actually found the test questions easier than the (HRReview) practice exam! Thank you so much for all of your help, tips and support!”
- Mary Fitzgerald, PHR, Evanston, IL
“I took your Smart Start course and the Last Minute review and yesterday I took the PHR exam and passed! Thank you so much for the great prep classes. They definitely made the difference between success and failure for me! There is so much material that could be asked on the exam but somehow you know exactly what to focus on and it paid off. Thanks again. ”
- Diane Garvey, PHR Chicago, IL
“I wanted to let you know that I passed the SPHR exam, and relied heavily upon the HR Review Workbook as an aid to studying. It was a tough exam, but having been through the Workbook several times helped me tremendously. I appreciated the format that allowed me to either do the practice questions as an exam, or refer to the answer section and use it as a review tool. ”
- Pamela B., SPHR, CEBS Southwest, FL
“The content of the Last Minute Course was perfect. I am surprised about what new information I learned and how I can apply to the exam and my job. I’m glad I took this intensive. It was great.”
- Teri Raimondi, PHR
“I took the SPHR exam today and passed. It was clear to me after the exam that your material was far more encompassing, detailed and difficult. The specificity of the questions in your study material, were more complex and more factually specific…I thought the Intermediate and Advanced questions in your study material were far more challenging than those on the test. Bottom line: your preparation was harder – the game was easy! ”
- John Petrusa, SPHR Director, HR Dyna Care Home Health Alsip, IL
“I passed the test today! And, although I used several sources, your system was best for me. It gave the correct answer and pointed out why the other were not “best” (as your ad pointed out), and thus, I was able to conceptualize and rationalize the questions during my test.
The questions were top of the line and mimicked the actual exam questions. I actually refused to attempt the 4/5 rule, but you kept presenting it, so I had no choice but to heed your warning and learn the formula. Needless to say, it came on my test, and I was able to ace it. This is an example of truth in marketing. So thank you, thank you, thank you, Amy and Carolyn! ”
- Nadine Seiler, SPHR
“I know your study materials helped identify those weaknesses with direction to study more. It really made a difference!”
- Barb Willever, PHR
“I LOVED the format of the questions, with the topics for review… it made it easy to go directly to that section, but also…. I LOVED the format of your answer key which took out a lot of research by having the detailed answers for each choice right underneath the question. Thanks!”
- Gary Cunningham, SPHR
“Your HR Review book came through for me once again! I purchased your book in June of 2006 and began studying it in July of 2006 in preparation for my PHR certification. I took the PHR exam in December of 2006 and passed! I continued to study the book in preparation for the SPHR exam.
I took the SPHR exam on December 3, 2007 and passed! Your publication was a great solution for me in preparing for both certification exams and cost a fraction of other PHR/ SPHR exam preparation materials that I have seen. Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful study guide.”
- Kenneth Cook, SPHR
“Using the test questions and the advice provided in your messages assisted me with passing the SPHR exam this past Monday! HRReview’s test questions really helped me to think strategically and get comfortable with the question format. The reasoning behind the answers to the questions were beyond valuable.
Thank you for assisting me tools to prepare and pass my exam.”
- Kawanna Jenkins, SPHR
Passed my PHR! Thank you for the great information! The class helped identify areas to work on. I finished the test in one hour forty five minutes. Thank you!!
