Brilliant Psychometrics seeks to turn this around by providing practical help to anyone undertaking formal assessment procedures at interview.
It explores psychometric tests, assessment centres and other formal procedures such as structured interviewing. It explains what these procedures are, informs candidates what their rights are and what they should expect in terms of advance information and feedback. The book is full of examples showing what psychometrics look and feel like and illustrative stories showing things to watch out for.
