Student Assurance of Learning® Assessment Study Guide
This thorough study guide is an ideal tool for students to acquaint themselves with the style of questions they can expect to see on the exam. The guide includes tips for exam preparation including suggested resources, and a practice exam, including answers and rationales for the answers. Students may supplement texts, research and websites studied as part of his or her degree program with additional sources listed in the Study Guide, used by item writers. These materials are intended to help students prepare for the exam; however, the materials do not “teach the test.” SHRM makes no warranty that use of the SHRM preparation materials guarantees passage of the Assurance of Learning® Assessment exam.

*NOTE: CORRECTIONS TO 2013 STUDY GUIDE:
CAN I TAKE THIS EXAM INTERNATIONALLY?
If you plan to take the exam at a test center outside of the United States or Canada, please email email@example.com before registering. The Assessment staff may need to manually register you because there is a subsidy charged for certain country test locations outside of the United States.
- Question 68. In the answer key section (Appendix A), the correct answer should be D acceptance of gifts. (“Understanding of business terminology” is noted as the correct answer.)
- Question 132. In the answer key section (Appendix A), “National origin” is noted as the correct answer. It is not one of the choices available in the multiple choice answers. This question and the possible answers will be re-written for the 2014 Study Guide.
- Question 155. In the Sample Exam (Section 4), all choices for #155 are labeled “D” --rather than “A,B,C,D”. The multiple choice answers should be labeled as A, B, C, and D (consistent with the multiple choice format).
