Online preparation courses for interviews & tests with MBB? (e.g. IgotAnOffer, Crafting Cases, etc.)

Hello everyone!

I will soon have an interview with BCG and I want to make sure I am as prepared as I can be for that day. Whilst browsing for resources, in addition to the ones that are usually mentioned, I found some online course, for example the ones by IGotAnOffer, which are quite pricey. I wanted to know if anyone could give me their review and/or advice regarding them. Are they necessary? Are they worth it? And if so, which ones are the best?

Thank you very much! :)

Hello!

It depends on how well prepared you are already and the amount of time your have to prep.

If you are a begginer and you need to start from the basics (how to crack a case, typical things you would find, usual frameworks, etc.) it´s probably worth the money, since there you will have a good repository of materials to get you up to speed pretty quickly.

However, if you are past that point already, I would focus my time -and particularly my money- on coaching and casing. From a certain point onwards, practicing is the only thing that makes you improve.

Hope it helps!

Hi,

Based on the feedback that I received from my candidates, those online sources are a good resource if you are at the beginning of your preparation. If you have already studied on a good book, I woul strongly recommend to focus on live cases/interview, either with other candidates or expert coaches.
Only live cases give you the same feeling of a real interview.

Hi Iavi,
I confirm they are good sources. However, once you have fixed the basis by reading Cosentino or Cheng, practice is more important than theory.

IGAO - not worth the money - you get a PDF with 5 cases and their solutions and you also get 2 hours of video materials in which they solve 5-6 cases in details. The materials are good, but far from feasible to prepare you for the interview. You can go through the materials in 2 days and then you'll have nothing to gain from them. There is also a video for math practice, which I found to be very bad.

There are a couple of sites that have 1 free week after which you have to pay the monthly fee and I would recommend you to try them and see it by yourself :)

1) RocketBlocks

2) Crafting Cases

Would love to hear opinion from other people about these resources.
