A great book for product management interview preparation. Get the book, around 3 weeks in advance, of a scheduled interview. Try to practice the case interview/market sizing questions with a friend. The case interview section gives you good examples, that should provide you with valuable vocabulary for your interview. However, I would have loved a few more case questions discussed in the book.
Market sizing is the best part of the book. The ten examples that the book uses are explained in details, and would prepare you well for this type of questions. Also, drill them with a friend.
The product design questions are helpful. A set of example questions are given. You would need a friend/colleague to brainstorm around these design questions.
The coding questions are a bit easy, however probably for PM interviews they do not ask anything harder. For coding questions, however I would consult, the other book that Gayle has written. I used that book to crack my Microsoft interview some 5 years back.
All in all very helpful.

The title of this excellent book under-sells itself somewhat (though it was named this way to tie in with Gayle Laakmann McDowell's previous bestseller - "cracking the coding interview"). In addition to a detailed breakdown (with solutions and example questions) of all the various types of questions you might face (coding, case, estimation, problem solving, design etc) it gives a great overview of what product management actually means, how it compares to similar roles (project management, product marketing etc.) and how the various big tech firms differ in their approach and technology.

Simply a must-have for any aspiring product manager and a handy resource for those working in the field already.

This is great - not just about the interview step but how to work your cv/resume, as well as what to be focusing on in your current role whether you're a product manager looking for a new opportunity or someone wanting to move into their first product management role. I got my first job in product management recently and feel that this really helped me along the way!

More than just about achieving a successful, this book provides a very informed insight as to what product management is all about, albeit mainly focussed on IT and media. Must read for anyone contemplating becoming or positioning themselves as a 'Product Manager' in these industries.
