Thank you, David Siler.

Any additional comments?

This was a great resource for the exam and for HR in general. I took the PHR a few weeks ago and passed (yay!). I feel like this audio book contributed to that greatly. I didn't use this as my only prep material but it was just as good as my expensive prep course books and the material in this audiobook was incredibly relevant to the questions that I got on the exam. There were actually a couple of times that I could hear David's voice in my head while answering the questions because I specifically remembered him talking about a topic.

This audiobook also allowed me to turn mundane tasks, like doing the dishes, into study time--which is pretty awesome because I got really sick of staring at a book for hours. I highly recommend this if you are in HR--it's definitely worth more than the price it is listed as.

My only complaint is he pronounces OSHA wrong. :) Oh and expect a few Star Wars references and role playing dialogues. They're silly but you'll remember the material.

This Study guide is not updated for 2012 test!!!

What disappointed you about PHR - SPHR Study Guide: 2012 Edition?

My PHR test preparation teacher warned us not to use any older study materials. She said that in 2012 PHR test changed by at least 30%. I was of course excited to find that this study guide is a 2012 edition, hoping to listen to this audio book on a way to and from work. What a disappointment! This study guide does not reflect the changes. Example: the narrator mentions 225 questions that will be on a final exam; while the new test only has 150 questions. Module structure and the information that is covered in each module are also very different from my study materials. There is also no PDF provided, even narrator frequently refers to it.


Would you recommend PHR - SPHR Study Guide: 2012 Edition to your friends? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this study guide to anyone. This might actually hurt your chances in passing the exam.
