Interview prep will never be the same...

Using the power of our community, Wall Street Oasis just changed the game, again. With over 4,000 interview insights in our Company Database, we have a lot of data on what Wall Street firms are asking, how hard the interviews are and different tendencies and trends.

We are pleased to announce the arrival of the newest versions of our Technical and Behavioral finance interview guides - the first ever guides to include actual interview questions from recent real interviews organized by bank AND level.

The first iteration of this revolutionary change will only include the majority of the Bulge Bracket ("BB") banks, but over time we will be adding specific insights from many more boutique and MM banks as well. (specifically, this guide has analyzed trends for interviews at Goldman Sachs, BAML, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, UBS, Citi and Barclays)... After these BBs, the next banks we will be analyzing are listed at the bottom of this post (we plan to release a new version in a few months).

Why am I announcing it now?
This is by far the most significant improvement we've made to our interview guides in years and they will continue to evolve, update at least once a year and get better as trends change.

Anyone who has already bought the technical or behavioral guide will get the updates for free. Please know that these dramatic improvements took hundreds of hours of work that went into building the WSO Company Database and updating these guides. We will continue to give free updates to past customers as we improve the guides year after year.

As always, our thousands of happy customers get updates for free - all you have to do is on Monday when the new versions are released, e-mail [email protected] a copy of your receipt and she will get you the new versions with 24-48 hours.

Patrick

Hi,

This really is a great improvement. I already bought the old version. Where can users like me get the free update?

Thanks!

You're going make us wait until Monday? I want now!!!! :)

Edit: BTW one of the best purchases I made. I highly recommend those to buy it now before prices go up.

The latest version (technical) was a good update but left a bit to desire. I think this new one is going be the ishhh.

I already own both of these guides, and for those of you who do not yet..... GET THEM! They give you insights and tips and keep you sharp. Think of this as hunting Big Game. You wouldnt wanna go hunting for lions without knowing your prey.

I hope this is better than the last batch of shit you gave me. Produced more wood than Ron Jeremy. I don't want you to yell, "Reco!" anymore. Know what you should yell? "Timber!" Yeah, Mr. Fuckin' wood.

Guys is it worth buying? I mean 50 pounds is not that a big deal, but you still wanna get something worth it...

By the way I'm in the UK. Is it as good for the UK? Thnx


No clue. Bought it anyway. Feelsgoodman.

It is worth buying. 2 friends of mine spent a couple weeks doing nothing but studying this and M&I guide. Both had the qualifications to land the interviews and both could keep a conversation. They got offers from each bank they interviewed with and swore by these guides. It's literally the questions interviewers will ask (almost verbatim) and the answers they are looking for.

I'm in the UK going through the internship cycles at the moment and definitely found it useful. the behavioral and technical guides compliment each other well - if you're serious about getting an offer, I'd definitely recommend them

I purchased the company database package, but still couldn't get access to it. Any advice?

I had same problem. Just try it several times. I tried it about 10 times, but finally I was able to access all of them.

Great guides by the way!!

Is it too late to get the pack today and still qualify for the updates?

CHIIBMONKEY:

Just out of curiosity, how long after we submit our previous receipts should we expect the new guides?

I got mine almost immediately. Hint: I assumed Ivy (who's a lifesaver, btw) lives in the Philippines, so I emailed her at noon (in Philippines time).

 
Sep 20, 2013 - 12:39pm

To anyone who already purchased this, can someone tell how the guides compare to Mergersandacquisitions's guides? I am leaning towards buying WSO guides because I am been using the site for a while, however I would still like to hear how it compares to other guides.

Purchased. I'll write up a full review sometime this week.

Also were the people who provided the interview questions applicants who made it to the superday or interview in-general?
