The Ultimate Guide to Crack the Imbellus Game with Hands-on Example and a Resolutive Model

The idea of writing this guide comes from the input received from candidates that I have successfully coached for the Imbellus test, that were unsatisfied by the material bought online. Best sellers on Imbellus Preparation try to measure and demonstrate their value counting the number of written pages. There are two main problems this approach ignores:

  1. Most of the candidates are running out of time and would like to be as efficient as possible
  2. Knowing Imbellus history, curiosities and strengths won’t increase your chance of success

The aim of this guide is to give you all the useful information to excel (not one more, not one less), providing you with practical tips & tricks that you can actually use during the test.
The guide has been built collecting first-hand information on the Imbellus, thanks to all my candidates that took the test. Within this guide you will find:

  • Detailed explanation and analysis of each scenarios
  • Pictures showing you what you will find during the Imbellus
  • Winning step-by-step strategy for each scenario
  • Hands-on example to simulate the ecosystem scenario

Well defined and clear guide covering the theory and rationale of the game and its scenarios. Key differentiator, there is an automated model that can help solve the ecosystem scenario. Besides, Luca is always eager to help. I believe that the guidebook had all the structure and the key tips of the game.
