I can say that while reading it I became increasingly more confident that I will not be caught by surprise in an interview and I will have time to think out possible answers so I can organize my thoughts and not blubber on the spot. I honestly recommend it for anyone regardless of field of study, anyone that has to go through an interview in their life (and who doesn't) should at least give a quick read.
Why Medicine is a completely different book. Aside from the first 11 paragraphs that make up the first 3 chapters, the book is a list of 500 questions. Most of the 500 questions don't include any further explanation or insight on how to answer them (obviously we're suppose to think about them and answer them ourselves). I'd say maybe 10% of the questions in the book get a paragraph long explanation on how one should answer such a question. Unfortunately you can't really sit down and read this book because it is essentially a list of 500 questions. On my way to work I read through approximately 25% of the book (the bus ride that day took about 10 minutes). Since the book, to me, doesn't seem like it's meant to be read in the traditional sense, I don't know how one should use it? I certainly wouldn't whip it out in an admissions office waiting for my interview.
In Summary, I was disappointed by this book. I ended up zoning out as I glossed over an endless list of questions. A few made me stop and think and wonder how I would answer them. But at the end of the day I didn't feel like I finished this book knowing more or feeling more confident about my looming med school interviews. Since this is an ebook, I look forward to and hope Dr. K will make substantial edits.
