Has anyone used "How to succeed in management consulting" by Victor Cheng?

Curious if anyone knows if this program is as useful for starting on the first day at an MBB as LOMS was for getting an offer.

I have ~6 months before I start at an MBB as a STEM PhD hire, and want to make sure I am prepared as I can be to 'hit the ground running'. Planning to read "Say it with charts" and "Pyramid principle", and maybe take a few courses (valuation, excel, financial modeling), but also wondering if Victor Cheng's course is worth it.

PS - also planning to travel/relax for about a month right before starting!

I did purchase his program upon joining BCG, and even kept it for a little while afterwards. Honestly though, I felt it was (a) not nearly as impactful as his programs geared towards applicants - such as LOMS, and (b) probably more useful for a 22yo than someone with a bit more work/life experience.

Would I recommend it? Probably not, honestly. Travel, relax... perhaps read a couple of these resources you mention or do some excel, but above all enjoy these last few days of bliss - pretty soon, you'll be wishing for more downtime :)

PS: congrats on the offer!
