    26. How many mock interviews should I do?

    I know you've asked yourself this question. You've also probably asked someone else, who gave you an unsatisfactory answer.

    You might even have asked us this question via email - in which case you either got a foot-long response in your email, or you got forgotten in our inbox (sorry for that, it's not personal).

    This is what Bruno and I attempt to answer in this episode. We also talk about...
    The reasons why you should do mock interviewsThe (many) problems with mock interviewsHow to achieve these same goals with less mocksHow many you should do if you're short on time vs. if you have plenty of timeBruno's 5-10 streak rule, if you want a personalized decision instead of a set number-------------------------------
