Hello, dear members of community!

I'm having a writing case in a near few days as a second stage for internship program. Could you please share your expirience with me? What will I face and what is the best approach to solve it?

They told that the mathematical part is supposed to have only 1 right answer. Will it be exact question to count?

Thank you very much!

Hi,

Bain has a written case, that looks kind of a test. You can find an example here (ask me for a password):

Bain Written Case has 2 main parts:

  • Case information you have to go through
  • Slides with the missing info you have to complete

Since each question in a written case has an exact correct answer, the success criteria is the number of questions answered correctly.

The best way to prepare is the following:

  1. Check if the calculator is allowed. If not - you have to train mental math. I posted the main tips here: https://www.preplounge.com/en/consulting-forum/tips-to-do-big-multiplications-in-my-mind-726#a1422
  2. Practice solving the cases - basically, preplounge website is about it
  3. Practice reading cases fast and prioritizing the information. You can use 2 sources:
  • Written cases you'll be able to find in google or in case books. I've seen a couple in "Vault Guide to the Case Interview" and "Insead Business Admission Test"
  • Harvard cases - either buy or try to download for free. You can find a couple of MIT cases here for free: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/Pages/Case-Studies.aspx The main problem - these free cases don't have any pre-defined questions.

Good luck!
