Find all our references of ORSEU books sold by SFE.
Are you going to pass exams at EPSO and want to prepare? You will find below all the references of books published by ORSEU Concours which will allow you to better prepare for the various tests of the competitions / tests of the European institutions.
First and foremost, it is essential to read your competition notice / description of the tests in order to choose the books that you will need.
As a reminder, each book is mainly composed of:
  • Description of the material;
  • Modalities of the test;
  • Methodology with detailed examples;
  • Series of exercises;
  • Explained corrections;
The books are from a minimum level AST (Assistant) to AD (Administrator). Thus, all the books can be used by candidates applying for a Contractual Agent (CA) job.
Books remain a very popular support for most candidates compared to computer tests (sometimes time-limited) or webinar training (only methodology and a brief explanation of the subjects). The best way to pass these events is to train well in advance and be motivated!
You'll find advice in our EPSO section.
Please note: "ORSEU" books are only sold in paper format and we cannot provide you a digital format. 
The available references are continuously updated according to the editions of our partner ORSEU.

Authors: Emmanuel HETRU, Claire MERCIER

Brief description:

This new revised and enriched edition is intended for candidates who will take the Verbal Reasoning test at EPSO.

Verbal reasoning is not a knowledge test because you will have several texts with different topics. The main point is not to understand the theme of the texts but the speed reading.

You will learn to analyze a statement and the meaning of a text, to master the subtleties of language and deduce which statement is logically deduced. You will need to easily guess what is asked of you, quickly and selectively read ideas via keywords for example.

You will need to learn to manage your time in a stressful situation by familiarizing yourself with speed reading and comprehension.

This book is also available in Italian (excerpt)

Authors: Emmanuel HETRU, Claire MERCIER and Jean-Luc BIZEUR

Brief description:

This book is intended for candidates who will pass the Situational Judgment test at EPSO. It is possible that a skills test will be included right after the CBT test (depending on your test description in your EPSO account).

During this test, you will be judged on your decision-making and actions in the professional sphere without taking into account your experience.

Thus, you will have a situation to analyze and find the best and worst action that you think is correct among the four proposed.

The candidate must understand each situation as a role play to provide an answer only on the given scenario. You are expected to have skills and good professional practices by prioritizing actions according to criteria: degree of problem resolution, priority, organization, possible hazards and deadlines to be respected.
