Format: Paperback
I'm a MSc Financial Maths student. For me, this book was the best help in preparing for gp interviews (for a trainee trader position) that I have had so far. It contains plenty of questions with detailed explanations, 0 filler. The author stresses in many occasions the importance of the reasoning process. I would definitely recommed this. I wish I have discovered this book earlier in my career!

Format: Paperback
The book is a light hearted look at possible interview questions asked by Wall Street Firms but does not tackle the problem of how to behave or handle interviews successfully.

Really, really useful if you're in the field 17 Oct. 2000
By Vitya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a financial engineering student at an Ivy League institution. Just got the book from Amazon. Awesome book, so far the best help in preparing for technical aspect of the ib (quantitative positions) interviews that I have encountered. I thought it would be sort of a black and white xerox copy - instead it turned out to be really well published. The book is rather weighty (>300p), contains a plethora of questions with detailed explanations, 0 filler. The guy is very good about cultivating the attitude of, "It's the thinking process and not the number in the answer." Overall, I would definitely recommed this. Given the amount of general info you can garner off free advice sites - vault/wetfeet, this may as well be the number one book on your preparation list.

Do NOT interview for any analytic job before reading this! 22 Nov. 2003
By "ll1l1l1ll1l1l1l1l" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is specifically targeted at those applying for highly-quantitative jobs on Wall Street, and any job seeker in that area would be nuts not to take advantage of the inside information Professor Crack reveals.
The reason I am writing this review, though, is that I believe the sample interview questions and advice are invaluable to anyone interviewing for any job that involves a lot of analysis.
I am not in the finance field, but rather in technology consulting. Having practiced with Heard on the Street, I found the "tough" interview questions I encountered to be downright easy, and I breezed through several rounds of interviews, landing the job I wanted at a major computer company best known by its three-letter acronym.
If you're headed to Wall Street, reading this book is a no-brainer. If you're headed anywhere else that involves numbers, logic or analysis of a non-financial nature, you'll still be glad you read it.

Really great prep for Finance interviews 17 May 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
6 stars, because it's helpful too. A really fun read, for me it was like a book of crosswords. This book is best suited for MBA's interviewing for top jobs, or undergrads interested in seeing what's expected of them after they get an MBA.

good for PhD quant positions 28 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a good source of sample job interview questions for PhD quant positions. Other good and recommended resources for finance careers are the Vault Guide to the Top Finance Firms, the Vault Career Guide to Investment Banking, and the Vault Guide to Finance Interviews. Also try the harvard guide to finance careers.

very good 21 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is good for PhD level candidates, but in my opinion there is more and better objective information for MBA and associate level candidates on Finance and investment banking careers in the Vault Career Guide to Investment Banking and in the Vault Guide to Finance Interviews, which have the added benefit of being able to be purchased on vault.com and downloaded immediately. Good luck.
