Quantitative/Math Resources

Piers asked on Jul 12, 2018 - 1 answer

Hi Guys!

I was wondering if anyone has suggested resources/textbooks for practicing quantitative skills. I have been using the Mental Math Tools on PrepLounge and Victor Cheng's site but would like to use some resources that simulate that exact questions I might face. I have read the GMAT style textbooks are good - does anyone have a suggestion of the best one to use? Has anyone used the book "Interview Math" by Lewis C Lin?

Any feedback would be hugely appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

I recommend downloading all possible casebooks you can find. Quickly go through each case but concentrate on solving the math problems that they have. To be honest, the way they solve the cases in these books is very poor, but the examples of the examples of the quant problems are pretty good.

The following casebooks may be useful:

  • Case in point
  • Chicago
  • Wharton
  • Vault
  • Case interview Bible
  • David Ohrvall
  • Etc
