Here's what a first time applicant has to say about the Selection Criteria Toolkit ...

The same weekend I picked up the book, I read it from cover to cover and I can assure you, no one has written a book (on Selection Criteria) which has given me the confidence I have now. I am not worried about writing a selection criteria now. Your book covered everything I wanted to learn and know and was obvious it was meant for someone who was writing a selection criteria for the first time.I wish you all the best with this book and many others you might write.You have done a good job with this one - easy reading with lots of learning. Excellent book Dawn. I will always treasure it.
