    I really like the "learning by doing" approach, which JTP basically was. It's a little bit expensive I think, but you can buy a premium membership for a monthly fee and during that period you'll have access to all the tests and they come with extensive answers to all the questions and a nice interface. They also have tests tailored for each major bank, but it may be a bit BS, considering they have tests for Goldman Sachs etc.

    I saw graduate monkey came with 150 page e-books etc. which I personally think is a really *****y way to learn to pass these tests.
    Fair enough, sounds somewhat similar to assessment day, but they have tests more geared to different providers.

    Lol they probably used GS to sell the site, considering they don't test people at all *

    Exactly. But they also have tests for all the providers, Kenexa, SHL and whatever they're called. Only site that had the test provider that the gig I have now used.

    Any point in putting the banks and your address on the cover letters? Or better to keep it on to look professional?

    What division?

    I would say if you want to apply a bit later like start/mid October and start learning until then you will be fine.

    A lot of work tho haha.... competition is high.
    Looking around, at least for the SW placements, a lot of banks only have one program which they seem to cycle around the depts but for the JPM one I was hoping to apply for either the Markets one or the IB one.

    There is more than just JPM that split up the spring programs btw.

    been getting scores of 16/25+ so far out of 10 numerical tests on AD

    is there a generic pass mark for all banks / providers or are the pass marks for tests all bank / provider specific ? I can't remember any number but for some reason 17/25 as a pass mark for an EY numerical rings a bell...

    Not a mark, but a percentile. 70th or more, sometimes 50-60th on a difficult test.
