Hi,

I was told that the Strategy& interview includes reading a booklet of slides with information in it for 10 mins, then discuss the questions (which will be given upfront) with the interviewer. Just wondering is there any resources of this kind of booklet with lots of unnecessary information to practise skim reading for case interviews?

Thanks!!

Hi,

Here I've uploaded some written case samples (PM me for a password):

The best way to prepare is the following:

  1. Check if the calculator is allowed. So far it was. 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. Prepare for a regular case interview - it helps a lot. Basically, prep lounge website is about it
  3. Practice reading cases fast and prioritizing the information. I found useful two 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 find online. You can find a couple of MIT cases here for free: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/Pages/Case-Studies.aspx Unfortunately free cases don't have the prep questions.

Good luck!
