Graduate - Help me prepare!

 
#1 Graduate - Help me prepare!

Hi all!

I've recently been successful in securing a role at PA consulting group as an Analyst for their Life Science and healthcare practice. I start in March and I was wondering if anyone would recommend I prepare for anything in advance before starting? e.g. reading any good books or brushing up on certain maths. Any advice would be good really!

I recommend seeing how many beer festivals you can visit in that time - you can get a little book listing every real ale available in the UK which you can dutifully tick off as you progress through them. Good training.

I would recommend reading "The Pyramid Principle: Logic in Thinking and Writing" by Minto, it is very often recommended to new consultants.
