A Comprehensive Interview Guide by
Wall Street's Most Sought-After Trainers

Real Questions, Continually Updated

Our huge list of "must-know" interview questions is continuously updated with real questions from real interviews.

Written by Professionals Who Have Been There

Unlike other interview guides, the Red Book has been compiled by former practitioners who train at top financial institutions and business schools. This guide was built with input from our clients — the world's top financial institutions and business schools — to ensure each question reflects what interviewees should expect to face and the level of detail interviewers want to hear.

Specially priced for students at $99, The Red Book is incredibly comprehensive and frequently updated. Competing interview guides are typically priced around $200 and offer less material with out-of-date questions.
