Preparing for the Exam
For how long should I plan to study to prepare for the SHRM certification exam?
While your study efforts will be dependent on your current experience and knowledge of the content, we generally recommend that you study a minimum of 60 hours to adequately prepare for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP exam. Your time could be reduced if you feel comfortable with a particular area. One of the unique tools within the Learning System is the SmartStudy tool, which provides you with a detailed plan to study based on your experience and knowledge.
What is considered a passing score on the certification exam and how does it relate to the post-test in the Learning System?
The results of the certification exam are reported as scaled scores on a range of 120 to 200. The passing scores for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP exams are set using the Modified Angoff method, a best-practice procedure commonly used for setting performance standards for certification and licensure exams. We encourage students to strive for 80% or higher on the Learning System tests, including the post-test, but to be mindful of the potential for memorization (rather than application of knowledge) since the test questions are repeated in randomized order.
