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 -
