McKinsey PST resource sharing

Sarthak

Hi - I have a McKinsey PST coming up in 1-2 weeks. For additional practice, I am looking for someone to share paid practice material with, especially Victor Cheng's 3 PSTs + video lectures (part of his practice toolkit) and/or practice PSTs from consultingcase101.com. Open to sharing other PST material as well. Please let me know if interested.
