the best prep book for PM interviews awesome book. really helped give me a framework to study/prep for the interviews i had. i also really liked how the “culture” of each of the larger tech companies and the ‘behind the scenes’ interview process was laid out. the test questions were really awesome, and so were the sample answers. it really helped me frame my answers in my interviews.

Cyrille de Nervaux says:

Great read! This book goes straight to the point, with very useful information and examples to prepare for a product manager position job interview

Srinivasan Venkataramani says:

Good coverage of questions – and answers Good handling of interview questions and topics and good advice on preparing “top 5 stories”. This did benefit me a lot and I was more confident during my interviews as a result.
