Study the terminology and go over past exam questions. There are only so many ways to ask the same questions for audit.

Thanks. Aiming for mid January, hopefully that's enough time.

^^ this. Also read the questions carefully- some of the wording can be tricky.

@ citi that's what I heard too. I'm using Becker, do you think it's enough? Read a couple of blogs that Becker isn't that good for audit

I used Becker and it was fine for the material. Just do a shitload of practice tests. I'd recommend also getting practice qs from Wiley as well.

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!

Just accepted an offer from a former client at an exciting company - Joining the corporate strategy team after 5 years in consulting post mba. I doubled my comp in cash before equity - which is flattering / exciting - but also a lot of pressure … a bit worried they expect me to come in and be a wizard. Any tips / advice?
