Format: Paperback
This book includes an excellent spectrum of HR material, covered with a reasonable degree of thoroughness, considering its ambitious scope. It's quite readable, as well, making it easy to digest and retain. In fact, it helped me pass the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification exam from SHRM.
However, the book contains a number of typos, and while most of them aren't serious, it appears that the chapters were renumbered after the answers to the practice questions were already typeset -- making their answer key virtually useless and utterly unreliable. The answers to one chapter's questions are labelled as being for another chapter's ... a real mess.
I got the impression that this book was rushed into print in order to meet some deadline. While the textual content is very good, I caution the reader not to rely on the practice questions, not only because of the answer key problem, but because they are not particularly clear or well-written.

I purchased this book for my mother for her Human Resource Management course. The book was in good condition though used. The text is simple to follow along with unlike some textbooks, the answers are easy to find. Excellent price the shipping cost more than the actual textbook itself. Shipment was pretty quick too.

I bought this book for a class I took a few years ago when finishing my bachelors degree. This would be a good starting point for someone that has no knowledge of HR management and are looking to learn more.
