Practice Exams by HRCI are smart and stress-free ways to get comfortable with the test-taking format and learn about your strengths and weaknesses. If you already know that you want to pursue either a PHR or SPHR credential, you can purchase up to two completely different sets of practice exam questions (volumes) for each credential. Many candidates purchase both sets and take one as they are beginning their studies to identify your strengths and weaknesses; they take the second to see how much they’ve progressed.

HRCI also offers a PHR/SPHR Package – great for those who are eligible for either the PHR or SPHR, but still uncertain about which exam and certification to apply for. The PHR/SPHR Package will help you decide on the best certification for your experience level as an HR professional.

HRCI Practice Exams come in two modes. In Exam Mode, take a timed test and, upon completion, you will receive a score report showing your performance in each content area of the exam. You can then turn to Practice Mode, where you can take your time to focus on areas of weakness, attempt to answer the questions again and receive explanations about the correct answers.

HRCI Practice Exams are now available for the aPHR, PHR, SPHR, PHR/SPHR Package, GPHR, PHRi, SPHRi and PHRca certification exams.

If you do not pass the exam, HRCI will notify you with an official exam outcome report and instructions on when you may schedule the re-take exam.
