I went from failing the Foreign Service Officer Test to scoring in the top 1-2% of all takers. I increased my score by more than 40 points, and improved almost 25 points on the Biographic Questionnaire alone. I've combined background information on the test with practical advice. This book will help you to pass, especially if you've struggled with the Biographic Questionnaire in the past.This book is also poorly written, disorganized and relentlessly inaccurate, written episodically as a stream-of-consciousness monologue, riddled with poorly cited and irrelevant research, lame attempts at humor, and obscure pop culture references that have been painfully and awkwardly insinuated into the text solely for the author's amusement and which will be noticed by very, very few. For some idiot reason, there are a few social media-style hashtags included in it. Probably most damning of all, the author's use of the Oxford comma is inconsistent, for which there is a special place in hell. Keep in mind, this is not a review, this is just the author's description. Enjoy.

Career Diplomacy—now in its second edition—is an insider's guide that examines the foreign service as an institution, a profession, and a career. Harry W. Kopp and Charles A. Gillespie, both of whom had long and distinguished careers in the foreign service, provide a full and well-rounded picture of the organization, its place in history, its strengths and weaknesses, and its role in American foreign affairs. Based on their own experiences and through interviews with over 100 current and former foreign service officers and specialists, the authors lay out what to expect in a foreign service career, from the entrance exam through midcareer and into the senior service—how the service works on paper, and in practice. The second edition addresses major changes that have occurred since 2007: the controversial effort to build an expeditionary foreign service to lead the work of stabilization and reconstruction in fragile states; deepening cooperation with the U.S. military and the changing role of the service in Iraq and Afghanistan; the ongoing surge in foreign service recruitment and hiring at the Department of State and U.S. Agency for International Development; and the growing integration of USAID’s budget and mission with those of the Department of State.

Filling a gap in the literature, Electrotechnical Systems: Simulation with Simulink® and SimPowerSystemsTM explains how to simulate complicated electrical systems more easily using SimPowerSystemsTM blocks. It gives a comprehensive overview of the powerful SimPowerSystems toolbox and demonstrates how it can be used to create and investigate models of both classic and modern electrotechnical systems. Build from Circuit Elements and Blocks to System Models Building from simple to more complex topics, the book helps readers better understand the principles, features, and detailed functions of various electrical systems, such as electrical drives, power electronics, and systems for production and distribution of electrical energy. The text begins by describing the models of the main circuit elements, which are used to create the full system model, and the measuring and control blocks. It then examines models of semiconductor devices used in power electronics as well as models of DC and AC motors. The final chapter discusses the simulation of power production and transmission systems, including hydraulic turbine, steam turbine, wind, and diesel generators. The author also develops models of systems that improve the quality of electrical energy, such as active filters and various types of static compensators. Get a Deeper Understanding of Electrical Systems and How to Simulate Them A companion CD supplies nearly 100 models of electrotechnical systems created using SimPowerSystems. These encompass adaptations of SimPowerSystems demonstrational models, as well as models developed by the author, including many important applications related to power electronics and electrical drives, which are not covered by the demonstrational models. In addition to showing how the models can be used, he supplies the theoretical background for each. Offering a solid understanding of how electrical systems function, this book guides readers to use SimPowerSystems to create and investigate electrical systems, including those under development, more effectively.
