Hi! Anyone taken SHRM-CP exam recently and have any tips on studying or taking the exam? TIA.

My local SHRM group had a study group of people taking it in the same period. They used to have mock tests to take on the SHRM page too. There was a small fee but I did them close to the test period and thought it prepared me well for what the test was like.

Thanks. Where can I find mock tests?

I took and passed SHRM-SCP in January. Passing the test is all about doing as many practice exams as you possibly can. The SHRM LMS is the very best tool for this.

Send me a note if you’d be interested in chatting through some other recommendations - I’m happy to lend a hand!

I work in tax. After 2 yrs working, I should be on path to become a senior next year. Frankly, I have no idea what I'm doing and I barely understand it as my knowledge is grossly lacking. I have no idea how I survived this far. I do my best to provide work on time and to the best of my ability. My superiors say I'm good, but it's not due to my tax knowledge. I feel anxious about this, how I'm really not ready. I have this feeling I should quit. But another voice tells me I should stay..idk...
