When I did the test at Roland Berger several years back, it was a classical IQ test, consisting of different parts. Not sure if still identical, but this is how it looked like:

1. Verbal Part
1.1 Complete incomplete sentences
1.2 Analogies (Hat:Head --> Shoe:?)
1.3 Finding categories (6 items are given, can be clubbed into 3 categries)

2. Numerical Part
2.1 Mental math, solving equations
2.2 Complete number sequences
2.3 Fill operators into given equations

3. Figural Part
3.1 put together disassembled figures
3.2 Turn dices
3.3 Matrices

====================================

B) Cases vs. MBB

====================================

Roland Berger tends to ask more questions relating to sector or functional expertise (given that usually people need to apply to a certain practice at RB). Hence, the cases tend to be more technical and less conceptual, compared to McKinsey and BCG. However, you still need rigorous structuring and ability to hypothesize on the grounds of incomplete information.

Hi Anonymous,

my thoughts on two of your 4 elements:

I am in the same situation you were in when you submitted this question: Did you have your interview yet and if so, how was your experience? How would you answer your own questions?
