Our system offers 500 current Multiple Choice Questions with explanations (MCQs) across our pre-test, review-test, and post-test databases:
Pre-test: This component features 200 MCQs, evenly distributed across each content area of the aPHRi Exam Content Outline. Participants can use the pre-test to gauge their understanding of specific topics. Upon completion, the system provides an overall correct percentage, along with the number and percentage of correctly answered questions. Detailed explanations for each question are also included. Users can save their pre-test results for future improvement (90 MCQs in 1 hour 45 minutes per session).
Review-test: Each review test offers 200 MCQs (from the Pre-test database) with explanations, aiding understanding of the specific knowledge areas for each section of the study workbook. Access to the next section is granted upon successful completion of the previous one, reinforcing earlier learned concepts.
Post-test: After mastering all knowledge areas, participants can take a full-length simulated post-test, replicating the actual exam conditions. This includes 90 practice questions to be completed in 1 hour and 45 minutes. The test format mirrors the final aPHRi Exam, featuring different types of MCQs such as single correct answers, multiple correct answers, fill-in-the-blank, drag and drop, and scenario-based questions. Aim for at least 80% correct answers in the post-test (comprising 300 independent MCQs) to identify areas of improvement and focus on further revision.

Note 1: Our materials are not textbooks or literature reviews and should not be considered legal or professional advice. Our board of editors assists in eliminating surprises by covering every inch of the HRCI exam content outlines. Studying these materials does not guarantee, however, that you will pass the exam successfully.

Note 2: The scope of HRCI exams is extensive and the HRCI exam content outlines only indicate the areas to be tested, not the specific exam content. While our Workbooks or Test Banks are also developed based on the exam content outlines, their contents cannot cover all the actual HRCI exam questions.
