Fortunately, I had someone who had successfully passed the HRuci PRI certification exam before I did. His experience was a huge help to me and he shared some valuable insight into how to prepare for the test, including taking into consideration the knowledge gaps that exist between the current market and the demands of a diverse set of applicants. One important piece of advice he gave me was to take into consideration the language, tone, and structure of the questions you will be faced with on your HRuci PRI exam. How will you address the issues presented by these questions? For example, do you know what the difference between xiangwan and hrci is?
(Xiangwan) “Xiangwan” is the Chinese name for the consultative class. On the PRI exam, you will be asked to demonstrate an appropriate level of familiarity with these classes. For example, when answering the inquiry “Who lives at this address?” you will be asked to identify the relevant building in which that person resides. You will not be expected to know how to reach that building (unless you are familiar with the particular local dialect) or to identify how to get there (unless you are familiar with the local map).
(HRci) “HRci” is actually the abbreviated form of “horse racing.” The problem with this name is that it does not convey anything about what is being tested. It may fool a few people as to what skills employers are looking for, but it fails to tell you whether or not you will have adequate knowledge to pass. It may also mislead hiring managers into thinking that the test will be too difficult to administer accurately, when in reality it is neither difficult nor boring.
(HRci) “HRci Braindump” is what comes to mind when I think of the exam. It sounds like a challenge, doesn’t it? But what if there were two or three questions? You could memorize the answer to all three questions and memorize the format of the other two questions – but then you would have no idea how to present those answers effectively on the main screen. You might get lucky and memorize the format correctly, but the chances are very slim that you could do that with any degree of success.
(HRci) “HRci Braindumps” is what I came up with after using the word “Brainstorming” in my description of the exam. So, here’s what I meant by “brainstorming”. The HRci format asks the candidate to take a basic question and then “Brainstorm” in response to that question. In essence, the candidate has to come up with an answer that both satisfies the employer’s need for qualified employees and satisfies the employee’s need to express his/her own ideas.
(HRci) This sounds simple, right? However, it’s really not. For example, you might get lucky on the first try and just “Brainstorm” without having to consult a memory book. That kind of luck isn’t likely to happen all the time, though. It’s important to practice “brainstorming” on the forms because the questions aren’t all in the same style.
Another potential pitfall is to spend too much time thinking of clever answers. The HRci phr sample test asks you to solve a basic problem and then uses clever questions to show how your answer can be improved. A standard type of quiz won’t do that. You should spend about 30 seconds on each form. You should also check your answers for accuracy before submitting them.
