Behavior-Based Interviewing.Behavior-Based Interviewing is a  Thompson Course Technology’s Crisp Fifty Minute Series book. And indeed, it is a crisp fifty minute read – quick, simple with ample information for interviewers across the board. Terry’s approach to interviewing is step-by-step with enough examples to get the point across. There are 4 phases in the book (Chapters) filled with tips, glossary, examples and scales to assess the interviewee and interviewer. Nice to also have are the 200 behavior based questions and appendices (appendixes) at end of the book.

Overall it’s a great read for someone to get some basic but ample information on behavioral based interviewing.
