  • 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.


Victor Cheng's test are the same as consulting guru's test. He has a partnership with consulting guru. — Odufa on Jan 29, 2019

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!

Hello. I haven’t really been fast tracked. Feel free to send me a message and we can discuss. — Despina on Oct 09, 2017
