Study Group Testimonials

…The four study books were quite overwhelming and knowing that I had a scheduled reading plan with a specific amount to read each week in order to prepare for each class was very helpful and kept me on track. 


…The study group helped enormously in my preparation for the SHRM-SCP exam. The study group provided me with the opportunity to learn by exchanging stories and experiences with other HR professionals which helped to really bring the material to life and help it stick. We were able to discuss in person our viewpoints and differing ways of thinking about the sample questions and answers provided in the SHRM Learning System, which bolstered our understanding of the material. The group discussions facilitated and enhanced understanding of the material. While there are various methods to prepare for the SHRM exams, the study group was well worth it!


....The SHRM Study Group led by Joanne Lee was the absolute best decision I made when I decided I wanted to become SHRM-SCP certified, and I don’t think I would have passed the exam on the first try without it. The 15-week class is the perfect amount of time to learn and apply all the material covered on the exam, which is contained in four (4) textbooks, each more than 200 pages long. The class provides you with a reading schedule so you know exactly what topics to have reviewed each week, and it’s certainly a way of holding you accountable to complete all the reading, online knowledge tests, and situational judgment quizzes before each session. There is no doubt the test is hard, but the class will help you succeed while still working fulltime and living life because it helps you manage all the content over time and truly learn and apply it to your job every day. Additionally, you get to meet and network with an amazing group of like-minded HR professionals who are just as motivated to succeed and achieve this certification as you are!


Becoming SHRM-certified is quite the feather in any HR professional’s cap! It adds a level of credibility to you as a professional, and specifically to me as an HR consultant. Knowing that they’re speaking to a Senior Certified Professional helps create another level of trust in me as their HR partner. Additionally, SHRM is the HR industry leader, and the content for the SHRM-SCP was more applicable to everyday HR scenarios than other certifications I’ve taken (i.e. PHR). The textbooks are currently on my bookshelf in my office and I’ve already referred back to them multiple times for client inquires. That’s how you know the certification is worth it!”   Maria Clyde, PHR, SHRM-SCP
