3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough to write the CHRP NKE Oct. 5 2009
By Shades
I have a degree in HR and was advised to study this text for the CHRP National Knowledge Exam (NKE). It really is just another text book and covers only the basics. If you don't have a degree or extensive HR knowledge it would probably come in quite handy, but I found that my notes from my classes had a lot more information than this did.
