I intend to buy PST Preperation Guide of PrepLounge but I do not know what it is inside ?

Is it just a brief theory or specific guidance and example ?

Is there any distinguished point between this one of PrepLounge compared to others ? Because I have bought a few program outside

Hi Anonymous A,

thanks for your question on our Consulting Q&A!

Just to clarify:

On PrepLounge, we offer one McKinsey PST Preparation Guide: How to Crack the McKinsey PST.  This guide consists of 13 pages of useful tips on how to solve and best prepare for the PST. It includes topics like "Understand why the PST is conducted" and "Get familiar with the PST". Basically, it helps you to understand the purpose, structure and typical question types in a PST. The guide offers specific guidance and includes examples. However, it does not include a full practice PST. You should use it as the base of your preparation as it ensures an efficient and structured practice.

For the actual practice, go through the practice PSTs you already have or that we offer on PrepLounge (this is what Tiago mentioned): 

I hope this helps and I wish you all the best for your PST preparation!

Hi Anonymous. The Preplounge PST guides have 26 questions each. They try to replicate what you will find in the real McKinsey PST and should offer some good practice!
