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

Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar

Solved 34.3k times
Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar Onlinestar, an online retailer of furniture and garden products (core business), has grown significantly in recent years as a result of an expansion of its product portfolio. The company mainly imports goods from Chinese manufacturers but also operates its own production of cat lavatories (special business) in Eastern Europe. The company sells its goods via Amazon and ebay, and recently via an online shop on its website. Despite this development, the financial ratios have deteriorated in recent years. In particular, gross profit margin decreased significantly. Combined with a significant increase in shipping costs, this led to a negative result for the first time in the recently ended fiscal year and a resulting strained financial situation. Against the background of expected stagnating sales for the current financial year, short-term action is required. The board of Onlinestar asks you for an analysis of the reasons for the negative result as well as a derived recommendation for action. As a consultant, you should bring in your knowledge in online trading and develop solutions. In addition, the management board would like to receive a sales and gross profit plan from you for the current financial year.
