The Study Guide is an ideal tool for students to acquaint themselves with the style of questions they can expect to see on the exam. The Study Guide includes tips for exam preparation, suggested resources and a practice exam, including answers and rationales for the answers. Students may supplement texts, research and websites studied as part of his or her degree program with additional sources listed in the Study Guide, used by item writers. These materials are intended to help students prepare for the exam; however, the materials do not “teach the test.” SHRM makes no warranty that use of SHRM preparation materials guarantees passage of the Assurance of Learning Assessment exam.
The SHRM-developed Study Guide is available through the SHRMStore. Please be aware that other exam preparation materials may be developed by non-SHRM sources; however, SHRM only can confirm the accuracy, relevance, or completeness of those preparation materials created by SHRM and available exclusively through SHRM.
