Has anybody used the Case Interview Bootcamp programme from Management Consulted? Any feedback?
Overview of answers
I would not recommend it, because (as do other sources like Crafting Cases or all case prep books out there) it does not teach the core logic of cracking cases, which is rigorous top-down structuring instead of writing down random "bucket-list" areas you wanna look into in the hope that the interviewer is gonna give you some interesting insights.
The only thing I would recommend for serious case preparation is join a preparation program with an experienced coach here, ideally a former MBB consultant with project leading experience who has himself conducted real interviews with candidates there.
I don´t think these bootcamps are bad, honestly, there is a lot of effort put into them.
However, they are not personalized and maybe they fail to really make you understand the underlaying "why´s" that are behind.
For this, as outlined by the first comment, I would better spend the money in a more personalized training with a coach, that is tailored to you.
Hope it helps!
I never used it so I am don't have any strong opinion. In principle any program / tools that will help you to practice the fundamental of logic in solving a case is good (i.e. Question - Information to answer the questions - analysis to get the information - data to conduct the analysis). By developing the fundamental skill you don't need to worry if a case is a market entry, market sizing, profitability, etc, you will able to structure it.
Oh one more thing, do not forget to practice mental math
I had a candidate that bought that package and he told me that is not bad. Yet, I think that the most effective way to improve and get prepared is to practice with other people, both with experts and other candidates.
After reading a good book I would focus my effort on practicing cases instead of studying too much, because the risk is to become too much "academical" in your approach.
If you want to add something, I would suggest the LOMS program by Victor Cheng.
One of my coachees has gone through it and said that it was ok, but Crafting Cases drills were better.
