Your guide to exam success

Our Study Guide will help you pass the NKE exam on route to achieving the national Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation. We have helped over 12,000 individuals like you to prepare for certification, to re-certify, and to improve their careers and salaries: Why wait? GET CERTIFIED – Order your Study Guide now.

Why you need a Study Guide

Even if you were successful in an academic HR program, you should not rely solely on your text books as study resources. Those that use a variety of study tools will have a higher degree of success!

The content of the book is structured around the exam “knowledge verticals”, NOT your academic “knowledge verticals”. The Study Guide provides you with a comprehensive overview of the body of knowledge required for exam success, and the practice of Human Resource Management. This provides you with a one stop “Hub” that can then be used to explore other study resources, if needed.

Sample Multiple Choice Questions

There are over 500 sample questions in our Study Guide packages. Please be aware that they are not duplicates of actual exam questions. They are of equal difficulty (some say harder) then actual questions, and they have been developed by both academics and practitioners.

ALL actual test items are held in strict security and are not shared with ANY vendor of exam prep products – not even those offered by HR Associations. These items are the property of the examination bodies, and are retained and banked for use on future exams. Therefore, our products, and ANY other exam prep product, CANNOT specifically “teach to the test.” Why have PROFESSIONAL exams if you know what is going to be on them – that would test your memory, NOT your professional knowledge.
