Congrats on that invitation, that already proofs that you did a great job to arrive here!
As mentioned, the best way to prepare is the MBB FIT preparation, since it´s going to be the closest (with differences in the format, but not in the content, what is what matters for the prep).
If you want to deep dive on the topic, the "Integrated FIT guide for MBB" has been recently published in PrepLounge´s shop (https://www.preplounge.com/en/shop/tests-2/integrated-fit-guide-for-mbb-34)
It provides an end-to-end preparation for all three MBB interviews, tackling each firms particularities and combining key concepts review and a hands-on methodology. Following the book, the candidate will prepare his/her stories by practicing with over 50 real questions and leveraging special frameworks and worksheets that guide step-by-step, developed by the author and her experience as a Master in Management professor and coach. Finally, as further guidance, the guide encompasses over 20 examples from real candidates.
Furthermore, you can find a Expert Article on PreLounge fully dedicated to Behavioural questions, one of the key building blocks of FIT:

First of all, congratulations on being invited by Oliver Wyman!
This is indeed an interesting question which is probably relevant for quite a lot of users, so I am happy to provide my perspective on it:
Generally speaking, the HireVue assessment will be mostly like a personal fit interview where you record your answers to given questions instead of having a conversation with a human counterpart. I would adivse you to have a look at the official HireVue website as well as at the PrepLounge forum since this is not a new topic.
As such, I would advise you to - in case you have not already done it for other interviews either way - thoroughly prepare your answers to common personal fit questions and practice them a bit. I would equally advise you to do the same for a regular interview since while you can talk a short moment to think about a question it is still expected that you had a look at the most common types of questions either way.
In case you want a more detailed discussion on how to best prepare the HireVue assessment, please feel free to contact me directly.
