Post PILAPT and Interview Prep?

Hi guys, I'm new here and I'm not sure if I'm on the right thread.
So basically I will be applying for the cadet pilot for my airlines around next month and it will be assessed by CTC wings.

Here's a link to it
Integrated ATPL

And I'm just wondering how and where can I prepare myself for the PILAPT,
so far I have:
Pilot Aptitude Test
https://pilotaptitudetest.com/features/

and

LatestPilotJobs
CTC Wings Pilot Interview and assessment-Latest Pilot Jobs-Latest Pilot Jobs

Can anyone tell me if LatestPilotJobs is legit though? I couldn't find any reviews and the site seems suspicious. I'm not sure which one is worth the money for...
Help?

latestpilotjobs.com is fine for practising CTC assessments.

Yes, me.

I found the tests and interview prep questions on latestpilotjobs.com are good practice for the CTC assessment process.

If you don't mind paying for software v close to the real test look at Skytest. Expensive but worth it.

@BVB @FlaplessLanding

Which would you guys say is the best value?

Thanks

Ensure your mental arithmetic is up to speed

Probably very old fashioned, but knowing up to your x12 times table is useful.

Be yourself during the interview, and convince them that you have the passion to fly.

They can smell the bull**** straight away.

I used Pilot Aptitude Test.com (PAT) quite a while back and was very very impressed. Was wary of spending cold hard cash on something I hadn't heard of before but for me it looked the most comprehensive and accurate out there in terms of prep for pilapt. Got through the assessment and now in RHS in uk based LoCo so worked for me.

Was quite a while ago now so it may well have even more features since then. Quite a few guys in my current airline have been using it to prep for BA assessment too!

For balance I haven't used latestpilotjobs so its not a comparison but as someone who is quite budget conscious on what I spend my cash on it just didn't look as polished as Pilot aptitude test was.

Best of luck!
