Lacks any real depth
on 9 July 2007
Firstly, the book is good for the practice maths and verbal reasoning tests and helping you with your application form.
However, the book seems to lack any real help where you need it most. It seems to describe the process in detail but offer little help in the way of preparing you for the tests. For most people, the role plays and interview stages are the real worry of the Assesment Centre, there seemed to be little information of value on these stages.
As pointed out already, it is out of date. The book will teach you about writing a letter for the Assesment Centre which is no longer a requirement. In this sense, your on your own for the writen section of the Assesment Centre.
At the end of the day, the price of this book isn't going to put much of a dent in your wallet, and it does help to some extent.... but to me it didn't offer the kind of help other reviewers found it to be.
The most important information in this book is given to you, for free, prior to the Assesment Centre (should you pass the application form).
I'd advise others to buy it, but don't expect too much from it.
