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 and a resolutive excel model 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
  • Excel model embedding an algorithm to efficiently support you during the test

The guide and excel model are constantly updated with first-hand information and you are always welcome to contact me for any update or to discuss the content after the first purchase. Any useful information shared will guarantee an additional coupon of 25% off for a coaching session.
