Rated 2 out of 5 by from Errors There are errors in this book that makes some questions unanswerable. It is good practice nonetheless, but not worth the price tag of $50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Support I used it for the SJT and WCPT and passed. Some of the question types didn't show up on the exam, but most were really useful. I used the site as well and found the material helpful and the customer support great. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought this book to help me prepare for the GRT, SJT and WCPT. Let me start off by saying that while the GRT and WCPT sections of this book were somewhat/slightly helpful, you would be better off skipping the SJT section. The questions are completely different and you will only be wasting valuable study time. Not worth the money overall. Edit: Just got my results! I followed this book's advice for the SJT section and actually got a lower mark than last time. From 80% to 61%. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok but not representative of actual tests I used this guide for to prep for the GRT, the SJT, and the WCPT. The practice tests give you a good idea of the types of questions asked, but are much simpler than the actual questions. I found the book useful only in building (somewhat false) confidence for tests

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank You Passed everything I was working on. SJT, GRT, and GCT. I got the book and the site, and found the material very useful. Normally wouldn't write something like this, but the service I was provided was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Service I just read a review and don't know what the guy is talking about. I have used both the site and the book and passed the WCPT, GRT and the GCT2. The customer service was amazing (people actually answer the phone when you call) and all questions were addressed quickly. The only comment that was fair was regarding the GRT in the book. I asked why the tests were different on the site and the book, and they told me the site had recently been updated, and the GRT was one test that needed to be fixed up in the next edition of the book. I was very impressed with this book and the company that produced it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I bought this book, and also had access to their website. They're both useless. I scored very well on all the practice exams, only to find that their exams were out of date (the real exam had entirely different KINDS of questions), and far too easy. My real exam scores were MUCH lower (i.e. I went from a 90+ on the practice exams to a 65 on the real exam) than the practice ones. To avoid appearing to suffer from exam stress, in the Written Comprehension Test, I scored over 90% on both the real and the practice exams. It was the GRT tests that were the real down fall with this product. I am sure that there are much better products out there, and I will not recommend this book to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book It was a very useful book which helped me prepare for 3 different tests.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of Tests I did good on my tests after studying with this book. There were lots of them and even a website with more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Both the book and the website were fantastic and I now have a job!
Date published: 2007-10-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Book is a Mess There are so many problems with this book. The main one is that many of the answers to the practice tests are missing, making it impossible to use the tests
