Vault, M&I, WSO Guides

When people refer to the "Vault Guide", what are they referring to? Doesn't Vault have many guides? Is there a specific one good for banking interviews?

Also, is M&I worth dishing $100 out for? I know many college campuses have Vault available, but not so much M&I and WSO.

WSO actually goes in a lot more in detail with all their guides than vault.

M&I is great too, but I would personally get WSO (which I have)

Personally, i feel the vault guide is a piece of crap compared to M&I and WSO guides. Vault guide explanations are poorly organized and just terrible.

the M&I guide is worth the money, but WSO does the trick as well.

Good luck.

Everything that is in Vault is in M&I, presented in a much more organized and in-depth fashion.
I have the M&I interview guide, it has been extremely useful in interview prep.

I think WSO > M&I for the basics and behavioral, but in my opinion M&I's advanced questions are better.

I'd buy both before buying Vault. You won't find anything in Vault that isn't in one of those, but you will find a lot of stuff in WSO/M&I that isn't in Vault.
