Hi,

I recommend using the following sources to train math and critical reasoning:

Fast math skills

  • Rounding up and down
  • Learn how to multiply double digit numbers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ndkkPZYJHo)
  • Learn the division table up to 1/11 (i.e. 5/6 = 83.3)
  • Learn how to work with zeros using powers (e.g.: 4000000 = 4*10ˆ6)

Use math tools (Mimir math for iOS), Math tool on Viktor Cheng website to practice

Math and Critical reasoning

  • GMAT test CR, IR and quant parts (Official guide and Manhattan prep)
  • Refresh basic topics like statistics, probabilities etc (Any GMAT or MBA prep guides)
  • Try Mckinsey practice tests to train speed
  • Try PST like tests from the web

Best!

Caveat: I dont know the specifics

Having said that... I'd practice the McK PST test and others similar to it. At the end of the day, consulting is consulting, and we all look for the same qualities in applicants.

A bit of GMAT-type math wont hurt either obviously.

Good luck
