PHR/SPHR- Professional in Human Resources Total Test Prep Package For Mac Users

PHR:SPHR- Professional in Human Resources Total Test Prep Package

So, last month I posted that I had scheduled an exam date for the PHR exam for the upcoming winter. In order to prepare for the exam, one of the items I purchased was the: PHR/SPHR: Professional in Human Resources Total Test Prep [Paperback] by: Sandra M. Reed (Author), Anne M. Bogardus (Author). The book and CD are published by Sybex (a Wiley Company) and were a great price on Amazon.

However, the CD portion that contains all the practice test questions and other resources is not compatible with a Mac computer. So if you a Mac user like me, well you’re kind of “shit out of luck.” Fortunately for me, I had to get Parallels for my computer in order to be able to install Windows 7 on my Mac (for some coursework I’m taking) and that seems to be a fairly good work around.

I did reach out to Sybex (Wiley) and they had suggested the same thing. So if you are a Mac user and are running an emulator on your computer or are looking to use Bootcamp to partition part of your drive then this will be a good purchase for you. If not go ahead and save yourself some money and just purchase the Study Guide, which so far seems to be pretty comprehensive so far (more on the study guide to come once I pass my exam).
