The Science Behind Mobile Learning:
Overloading your brain with too much information at once is a common study mistake. Research has shown that smaller, more frequent study sessions are the key to knowledge retention. In other words, taking short quizzes on the go is becoming a much more effective means of exam preparation than reading page after page in a textbook. Apps offer the benefit of interaction, which means you’re far more likely to remember a concept you engage with rather than one you’ve only read about.

Take your PHR studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Worth every penny

This app was instrumental in my preparation for the PHR exam. It is user friendly and gives you full explanations as to why answer choices are correct and/or incorrect. You can customize exams with the full version or take a "Quick 10 questions" exam, that will break down your scores for each section. I passed today, and I don't think I could have done it without this tool!


Best Prep Tool Available!

I used pocket prep as my primary preparation tool for the PHR exam. I didn’t read one page of one book and I passed the exam with flying colors. If you want to pass your PHR/SPHR exam, I highly recommend you purchase the the full version of this app.


Good for PHR, not sphr

Questions are good for PHR but not sphr (I took both). I would not use this as my only study materials. The exam content did change, so not sure if this app changed as well- I took the exams before 8/1. App was slow and did have glitches, but it was fixed after an update.
