PilotsReference Guide© VS Ace Technical Pilot Interview?

hi!
Did somebody compared this 2x books: "PilotsReference Guide©" or "Ace Technical Pilot Interview"?

which one offers more simple explanation, which can be of help for interview preparation and knowledge refreshment?
I have also "JAR Professional Studies", which is great book also, but would like to know about those two...

The second of those has been repeatedly noted here as being at best unreliable and at worst downright nonsense.

Do a search and check a few threads ... here's a couple to get started:

I believe in this business it's far safer to KNOW NOTHING THAN TO RELY ON THE WRONG THING!!!

ALSO remember you can't lie to airplanes

And most important of all, to know WHEN you know nothing.

In my first task as an engineer, I was faced with something I didn't know how to do, so did the standard university exam approach of taking my best guess. (Because a university education is such a good preparation for the real world ...) and, of course, was horribly wrong.

It was then kindly, but nonetheless precisely, pointed out to me that if I, as a professional engineer, guessed when I didn't know I was, in effect, gambling with other peoples' lives.

Never, ever be afraid to ask - and be very, very, afraid of those who never ask.

Hopefully the interview board reviewing his case won't use the "Ace the tech pilot interview" too.

I think MFS, Mutt, OS, OverRun, John Farley, Genghis and a few others ... will need to look at writing a book of relevance to this discussion topic ?

But we ARE writing such a book J_T, it comes in daily instalments!

Usually known as http://www.pprune.org/

Very modest of you, you should have put your own name at the top of the list!

Regards,

Old Smokey

... when I were but a young buck, I knew that I knew everything (didn't we all ?).

Then, as I got older and had more opportunity for those who knew far more to comment on my impertinence and youthful ignorance, I realised I knew rather less.

I am convinced that, by the time I die, I will probably realise that I know 3/5 of etc ....

Perhaps I could help with the proof reading ?
