"I just completed my interview and assessment at Emirates recently (June, 2013). I found your guide 'absolutely priceless". Worth every penny and I have no regrets. Of course, the individual questions and interviews vary from candidate to candidate and probably from day to day, which is to be expected. However, overall it was an excellent preparation tool.  Well done and thanks so much. " Anonymous
