They care a lot less about that than verbal and quant. But they will also be suspicious if you bomb that section. I prepped for the writing for like 8 hours max for that section and was fine (as a fluent English speaker). Not sure what you mean by MBA vs non-MBA. I’m answering from the perspective of an MBA, not sure anyone in this bowl would know too much about non-MBA (exception being joint degree ppl).

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
