    Preparation Skills are here!!

    This book was exactly what I was looking for. Not only does it help you with answering questions, it helps you with your research of the company you are interviewing with. I used this book and was confident going into the interview, and was fully prepared for the five hours I was there. If you are buying a book - BUY THIS ONE!

    For anyone in the work force, Job Interviews for Dummies provides the information necessary to 'ace' the interviews and get the job. The information is factual and the presentation is entertaining. A win-win investment.
