You mean from management consulted? I didn't read the book but bought it in a bundle with the "case bank", which I was after. And I must say that I was highly disappointed. Almost all cases in "their" case bank have been copied from leading case books. They just adjusted all the formatting and layout, but content-wise it was a 1:1 copy. In my opinion this is a scam and I don't know why they are allowed to sell other people's content under their brand.

Hi,

"Consulting Bible" and "Vault guide for consulting" - check the cases with graphs in these books

In general, since most of the candidates struggle with the consulting math I recommend downloading ALL casebooks available online (plenty of them you can easily find for free in PDF search) and go through the math problems in the cases.

Pls, don't follow the books solutions as the best practice for solving the cases since they are not that good. Just practice the math problems.

Best,

I certainly think it is! I would rate it higher than case in point and case interview secrets, I think its clearer and the cases contained are layed out in a way that allows you to go through them on your own and rate yourself on each section. Hope that helps
