Alexandria, Va. − HR certification test takers ranked the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Learning System® as the best preparatory program for those studying to take the Professional in Human Resources (PHR®) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR®) exam, say the results of a recent HR Certification Institute exit poll.

More than 90 percent of those surveyed said they were satisfied with the learning system, and more than half said they would likely recommend the SHRM Learning Systemto others.

“The SHRM Learning System holds the top national first-time pass rate of any competing HR certification preparatory program on the market, and the poll results reflect the quality of the program for test takers,” said Barbara Sadek, SPHR, the director of education for SHRM.

“The highest possible praise comes from exam candidates themselves. Test takers who are serious about earning their PHR or SPHR on the first try value the Learning System difference.”

From now until Dec. 1, 2009, SHRM will give Learning System self-study users a special, limited-time offer to purchase the system for $625.

Developed 20 years ago, the SHRM Learning System contains interactive case studies and more than 1,600 practice questions and answers. It is the only program on the market to undergo a yearly audit to ensure the most up-to-date information on legislative issues impacting HR.

The next PHR/SPHR exam testing cycle begins Dec. 1, 2009 and continues for eight weeks. The HR Certification Institute registration deadline is Nov. 13, 2009.
