Hi Lape,

It depends on an office: in London, Dubai you pass it online, while in Moscow you go to the office to solve a written case.

Bain Test includes maths, graph analysis and complex calculations. You do not need to practice cases to pass the Math Test. If you have mathematical backgroung, 5-10h will be enough for preparation.

What is more, as far as I know ther is only one platform, which prepares for BAIN tests. It is myofferprep.com You can visit and check the tests there.

Kind reagrds,

Egor
