Hi Nguyen,

That's a great wish. You have a long journey ahead!

This is my guide on how to become a cosultant:

  1. Nail your CV and Cover Letter

  2. Prepare for test

    • Download mental math for your Iphone and practice everyday -10 min

    • Practice GMAT for BCG and BAIN

    • Practice McKinsey PST

  3. Case-interview Ist stage. Theory
  • Wharton casebook 2010- you can check how all industries work there (airlines,

    retail etc)

  • Case-in-point – you can check what frameworks exist, try to practice and learn

    them (product launch, M&A etc.)

  • Check how former business consultant approaches different cases with best interviewers – listen to at least 3 cases LOMS - text me an e-mail I will give you access

    (https://cloud.mail.ru/public/DMT4/H2JSekLjN)

  • Check out MECE principle, top-down, bottom-up and pyramid principle (book Barbara’s Minto Pyramid)

  • IInd stage. Practice

    • Create your own case schedule (solve at least 1 case per day) with partners in local groups, universities/preplounge (extreme case)

    • Structure everything you do (how to go the shop, structure articles you read)

    • Solve at least 1 case per each case type you found in case in point

    • Learn how to analyze graphs (practice looking at graphs and asking so whats out of them)

    • Brainstorming is a must = generate at least 10 ideas on an topic in 30 seconds

      Link to casebooks
