Hi,

  • Consulting Guru and MConsulting prep are easier than the actual PST (I have the versions that they were selling 3-4 years ago). Good to practice but can't predict the success.
  • Victor Cheng's tests are harder in Math (lot's of calculations), so if you do them, you'll be fine with an actual test.

Also pls note that stress is an important factor and you'll score at least 2-3 points lower on a real test, so it's better to use harder tests. Thus Cheng works better.

Best!

Hi Despina,

Congrats on passing the CV screening process. May I know how you managed to get fast tracked? Because I'm aware that the London office PST rounds are only mid November.

Thanks in advance!
