PHRca Preparation Overview

Preparing for exams can be overwhelming, especially when you don't know where to start. Fortunately, there are several options available that can assist you in the preparation of your PHRca exam.

While HRCI does not endorse a particular resource or method of study, we encourage candidates to explore the preparation resources that are available for the PHRca certification exam.

There is no single preparation method that can meet every candidate's needs and we urge you to use a variety of tools and resources to enhance your understanding of general HR principles and HR exam content.

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.

Note: Once you access the practice exams, you have up to 180 days to use it repeatedly by erasing the answers. Example: The code is redeemed on 10/7/2016. It remains valid until 4/3/2017. Afterwards, the login/access is invalidated.

Second Chance Insurance by HRCI: Many people don’t pass the exam on the first take. Of those individuals, some will hesitate to retake the exam because of the costs. Now you can double your chances without doubling the cost of registering for the exam. By purchasing this optional and non-refundable Second Chance Insurance, you can retake the same exam-type for just $125! 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. This insurance can only be purchased during the application process. Once the application is submitted, it cannot be added as an additional, separate purchase.
