Hey all, Do you know of a link where you can practice math 'word problems'? I have noticed that during my case prep that sometimes I have a difficult time deriving equations from information given in cases.

Any info on the subject e.g. book/site is also appreciated. Many thanks.

Something that helped my candidates - download ALL casebooks available online and go through the math problems in the cases. They will give a good sense of required business terminology. Then you can google what you don't know.

P.S. don't follow the books solutions to solving the cases since they are not that good. Just practice the math problems

Hi Vlad! Is there a possibility to download the cases for free? All I see is for premium users. Also, I’d like to practice the cases alone, but all I see are cases for solving with a Preplounge mate. I’ll be happy to hear from you !

There are so many casebooks available online that you can download

Also I recommend doing the cases alone only in the math part. It's almost impossible to get an offer without practicing with a partner
