    5.0 out of 5 stars More useful than expected 12 Nov 2011
    By Mrs R
    Format:Paperback
    I bought this book to complete the CIPD Level 3 certificate in HR. This book is a must for all those completing the certificate, it contains a list of all the units covered within the certificate and which chapters relate to that unit. I just wish I could find one for the level 5 now!

    A complete aid for the introduction to HR.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Human Resource Management 14 Nov 2011
    Format:Paperback
    So far the Human Resource Management book has proved to be quite a nugget of information. I opted for this book because of the price intially, but I think so far I've made the right choice.

    It's quite easy reading, breaking the sections, pages and information up into managable readable chunks. I haven't had eye strain or brain freeze yet.

    Am doing my foundation CIPD and this book is the bible. Get it, read it and learn from it. The MeerKat book (as it's commonly known) is the way to go!
