Math: word problems exercises

Hey all, Do you know of a link where you can practice math 'word problems'? I have noticed that during my case prep that sometimes I have a difficult time deriving equations from information given in cases.

Any info on the subject e.g. book/site is also appreciated. Many thanks.

Hi,

Something that helped my candidates - download ALL casebooks available online and go through the math problems in the cases. They will give a good sense of required business terminology. Then you can google what you don't know.

P.S. don't follow the books solutions to solving the cases since they are not that good. Just practice the math problems

Hi Vlad! Is there a possibility to download the cases for free? All I see is for premium users. Also, I’d like to practice the cases alone, but all I see are cases for solving with a Preplounge mate. I’ll be happy to hear from you ! — Anastasia am 9. Aug 2018

There are so many casebooks available online that you can download — Vlad am 11. Aug 2018

Also I recommend doing the cases alone only in the math part. It's almost impossible to get an offer without practicing with a partner — Vlad am 11. Aug 2018

Hi Anonym,

for many who have difficulty with mental arithmetic, it's just the stressful interview situation. What about you? How good are you at mental arithmetic if you practice alone at home?

If it's just nervousness, I would recommend you practice the interview situation as often as possible (e.g. with friends or on Preplounge).

If it's the mental arithmetic itself, you can practice very well here: https://www.preplounge.com/de/mental-math.php
If there is no other way, you can also do the calculations in writing on paper. However, I wouldn't advise you to memorize any multiplication tables.

If you have further questions, please contact me!

Best regards
Marco-Alexander
