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.

My AD coworker (not currently my partner) just got hired at a new agency and wants to bring me along as his writer. I'd love to join. He told the recruiter at that agency about me and sent my book. I also have another former coworker (creative) who put in a good word for me.

Should I reach out to the recruiter, too? Or is that overkill after two recos? I don't want to be bothersome. But I do want to show interest..

This all happened on Friday, if that matters. Thanks!
