Anonymous,

Case questions will obviously depend on the interviewer and the group you are trying to join. When I looked st the credit card side for example, I was given credit card related questions.

In general, I'd prepare for fairly demanding math questions centered around break even analysis and resolution of 3 equations / 2 unknowns problems

Hope this helps -

Everyone thinks that Capital One is all about heavy quantitative cases. And while its true that they do highly value analytical skills, they tend to ask a lot of short, rapid fire questions focused on assessing your conceptual thinking. They are a very innovative company and value creative thinking. So, be prepared to be tested on conceptual and quantitative types of questions versus structuring questions.

Hi!

To add on top of previous comments, in a nutshell: use the overall cases for MBB.

Cheers,

How should I approach the following question: estimate the market size of credit cards in the U.S.?

https://www.preplounge.com/en/consulting-forum/how-should-i-approach-the-following-question-estimate-the-market-size-of-credit-cards-in-the-us-6695

It should be relevant for what you are looking for.

Hope it will help.
