Book Description

3 Jun 2011 Testing Series

When applying for a new job or promotion many people face the rigours of an assessment centre. Many organisations, in both the public and private sectors, use these extended forms of assessment for selection purposes to guarantee they pick the candidate who will be the best fit for the company. However candidates often fail to do themselves justice as they are unaware of the different type of assessment tasks they may have to undertake.

How to Succeed at an Assessment Centre provides ideal preparation for assessment events and gives expert advice on all the key issues such as how the assessments are conducted, how to behave in formal and informal situations as well as how to prepare for the different forms of assessment.

With a plethora of practice questions, answers and explanations, How to Succeed at an Assessment Centre gives essential practical advice on the many different assessment processes, from group exercises to panel interviews and presentations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good prep 28 July 2010
By Eddie
Format:Paperback
A very useful guide to prepare you for any kind of assessment centre, I've literally just arrived home from the first stage of an assessment centre and feel fortunate to have read this book prior to attending. Ok you won't be doing every kind of assessment contained within the pages, however it gets your mind in the zone of logical thinking and makes best use of your limited time. Great value, great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, when mixed with common sense 25 Feb 2010
By Niikro
Format:Paperback
I bought this book in a bit of a rush just after I had been invited on my first assessment centre - and I got the job!

The book is easy to read (shouldn't take more than two evenings to cover all the sections) and tells you what to expect at an assessment centre and gives a few example scenarios/tests at the same time.

Not everything that you can expect at an assessment centre is covered in the book, however it does give you an idea of how to behave and what the assessors are looking for.
