Hi PrepLounge Community,
The other day I was reading a book called Ace Your Case III. And the book suggests that usage of calculator to do quantitative section of the case interviews such market sizing is actually OK. Here is the excerpt from that book dedicated for the market-sizing cases and how to manhandle the these sort of cases:
" Rule 3: Write it down.
If you feel more comfortable writing everything down and using a calculator, do! Most interviewers will not care if you use a pencil and paper to keep your thoughts organized and logical. And if pulling out the HP to multiply a few numbers keeps you from wigging out, then by all means do it. Your interviewer will be more impressed if you are cool, calm, and collected, and if using props helps you, then go for it."
Would PrepLounge community that have experience with real case interviews suggest following recommendation or do you think it is not acceptable given the expectations from interviewee?
I appreciate your time in advance,
