Hello, does anyone have any experience with "Embrace the Case Interview" by Brad Schiller? I've been reading it as I got it for $4 on Amazon, and it's been really helpful (especially with the behavioral part), of course always remembering it was written several years ago/certain aspects are no longer relevant. However, just wondering if anyone has read it/found the 6-prong approach to cases to be helpful.

Thanks!

Hi there,

went through this material. Would not say it is bad - I would just urge you to complement with other framework systems e.g. from US MBA casebooks, Victor Cheng, Case in point to get a feeling of the extent of the possible.

This should only be your “starting point” - after that you have to be able to create your own problem solving frameworks to solve any type of case - good resources on the platform and coaches can help a ton towards making this non-trivial shift.

Hope it helps
