Format: Paperback
This book contains a comprehensive list of potential interview questions, but a lack of coherent structure makes this rather confusing. In addition, the book is geared very much towards the American job market, and many of its recommendations are not really applicable to job seekers in the UK.

Format: Paperback
Although there is a newer version of this book, there is much about THIS version that I have found very useful. As many readers may already know, there are many books written on the subject of interviewing preparing for a job interview. A number of them are very wordy, detailed, a little too much of a particular theme than simply, concisely coming up with the BEST answers to the most frequently asked interview questions. This book gets right to the point.

I particularly liked what the author states in Chapter 1 Introduction: "Remember: the best candidates don't necessarily get the job: the best interviewee does." This is so true and is reinforced in a number of different sources including the DVD INTERVIEW THE BEST. You can have all the education in the world, reams of experience, tons of skill but unless you are well prepared and skillful in answering anticipated questions you may find yourself faltering.

Some of the first suggestions the author makes are contained in Chapter 4 Knowing the Job, the Organization and Your Interviewer:What Are You Getting Yourself Into? Starting with Chapter 5 Small Talk Questions:Breaking the Ice, the author starts to pose possible questions an interviewer might make including WHY they might be asking them. I like a major tip the author makes here: "Avoid Controversial Topics at All Costs." Chapter 6 Personal Questions gives you actual descriptive words you might use when asked the question: "How would you describe your own personality?"

Chapters 7 Educational Questions and 8 Experience Questions are followed by recommendations made to the reader on "How to Be a Lifelong Learner" and how to "Show You Are a 'Can Do' Candidate".

This book is an excellent guide for anyone who is nervous about interview questions. It guides you on what and what not to say, communication tips, illegal questions that you shouldn't have to answer, but may have to, behavior questions (how are your people skills?), stress questions (can you take the heat?), and what questions you should ask.
