SHRM-CP Exam Secrets Study Guide by Mometrix was the easiest for me break down and digest. A lot of people love to talk up the All In One Exam Guide by Dory Willer. However I found it to be very long winded, frustrating to understand or grab important points from, & difficult to comprehend what was for the CP exam vs the SCP exam. In the end I couldn’t get through a quarter of the 900 pages before the hole it was putting in my head caused me to seek other prep materials.

Hi everyone! Just looking for some insight. I’m about 4 years into HR, have my bachelors.

If anyone has some advice on what to get a masters in specifically, I’d be open to suggestions! I’m trying to find something that would be worth my while and would give me a step up. Thanks!

I am looking to make a career change to HR. I currently make 75K as a sales and development coach. I had a recent offer for a state government position in a talent acquisition role but I’d be taking a $25K pay cut. I am extremely over qualified for the position but it could possibly be a stepping stone and gives me the time to acquire SHRM certifications and possibly start taking classes to get my MBA. My question is those currently in an HR role, would this move make sense to you?
