Concise and clear guidelines for the two games (ECOSYSTEM MANAGEMENT AND PLANT DEFENCE) in PDF file, video and excel format. You can save time by knowing in advance the purpose of the questions and the detailed rules.
The following are some of the key points that I found after taking the web test

In the 2-3 hours I had to take the web test, I was able to clear up a lot of my doubts and concerns about the test, allowing me more time to prepare for the case study interview.
The rules and procedures of the test are the same as in the real test and the information is very accurate.
You will be able to view the video and follow the procedure for a better understanding.

I followed the procedure for ECOSYSTEM MANAGEMENT, but I needed to get used to using Excel and it took more time than expected for the real test. As there are no examples, we can understand the rules but cannot improve our operational proficiency.

Hi there, thanks for the nice review!

In terms of practicing with the Excel, I would recommend to use it in advance in the video #8 (The Automated Excel), available in the very last version of the Combo, where there is a full example of a complete ecosystem scenario. Using the Excel with the information provided, you can replicate what you should do in the actual test. The video then shows you the solution to correctly use the Excel and create a chain in 16 minutes, so that you can verify if what you did was correct.

انصح اي شخص يشترك بدورته. تغنيك عن القروشة
الاكسنت حقه مره واضح وفيه ترجمه تحت فتقدر توقف المقطع وتترجم في حال مافهمت
بالنسبة للعبة الاولى .. اعطاك الاساس وانت عليك تتعامل مع الحالة الي ممكن تجيك. بحالتي انا جاء اصعب بكثير من الي شرحه وماعرفت احله زين للامانة مع اني تدربت على مقاطعه كلها بالاكسل لازم تتدرب كويس ولاحظ انه سريع جدا بالكتابة ومايعني انك بتكون زيه نهائي بالتالي بتاخذ وقت اطول بالحل وانت تكتب
ف اللعبة الاولى حاول تتدرب اكثر وتدرب على كل الامثلة الي حاطها هو سواء بالمقطع ولا بالاكسل ولاتعتمد فقط
على المادة المشروحة شفلك كم مقطع باليوتيوب يمكن تلقى طريقة اسهل من طريقته لانها تاخذ وقت طويل جدا
اللعبه الثانيه سهلة ومعطيك استراتيجة حلوة ورهيبة! شبه مضمون انك تجيبها
هو ذكر بالمقطع انه يكفيك ساعتين بس وتصير جاهز غير صحيح انا اخذت مني وقت جدا طويل حدود ٣ ايام ( خاصة باللعبة الاولى اما الثانيه علطول خلصتها ) وبالنهاية الناس قدرات
لفتني انه يرد بسرعة خلال ١٢ ساعة ماقصر ابد جاوب على كل الاستفسارات
نهاية انصح بالاشتراك فيها وبغض النظر عن القبول او لا كانت تجربة جميلة واستمتعت فيها ! اتمنى لكم التوفيق واخواننا العرب تعمدت اكتب التعليق بالعربي حتى نشجع بعضنا
