3.0 out of 5 stars 50% job insight 50% professional skills and organisation, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 3 Month Mastery - Keys to Becoming a Top-Rated Management Consultant (Kindle Edition)
I got this ebook for free when initially released on promotion, so whilst would not have bought at the 24 price this there is value for about half the price. Worth it for students splitting the cost with friends or careers advice centres that will get more use out of it.

The book is split into several sections - targetted at someone holding a job offer at a large Management Consulting firm, giving advice on preparation that can be done before day 1. As a Consultant I had wondered what preparation I could do in advance and was generally told to sit tight and wait for training/starting on a project - but I do agree there are things you can get a start on in advance.

The most useful part of the book covers the key tools of the trade (excel, ppt etc.) and the types of modelling/research/presentations involved in the job. This also sets the reader tasks to practice and think about this more - all useful stuff to start reading around before getting into the office.

However there is also a lot of filler - from rehashing what firms will state on their website as 'competencies' they look for in employees (e.g. being analytical, confident in presentation delivery, a team player etc.) to listing websites for hotel and flight reward schemes. Okay this is all part of the job that you can prepare for, however I don't think this is news to anyone and is covered in many places elsewhere online. Same goes for the countdown of when to move house, cut your hair, buy (and an extensive section on what should be in) a Consultant's wardrobe.
