I am interested in getting my SHRM-CP certification this year and I was wondering which study methods and materials worked best for those of you who passed the exam. Also, what are your roles in HR?!

I used the SHRM learning system and Victoria’s boot camp! I studied for around 3 months and passed the first time. I highly recommend Victoria’s boot camp as we went over most of the topics on the test.

It really depends on how you learn best. There are a ton of local tech colleges or universities that offer online prep courses if you like that model. I personally bought the study materials and preferred to study myself and passed the SHRM-SCP exam.

Commenting to also express interest in the answer

SHRM Learning System helped me a lot to prepare for the test. If I remember correctly, the system offers some prep-test and books to study. My study plan was studying knowledge in the books, then having a friend/family help me review knowledge by using flashcards and working on prep-tests. My roles was HRBP and recently HR Program Manager. Good luck with your certification!

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
