Hello. I'm just wondering how to practice setting up different type of equations that may come up during case interviews? There are certain cases on PrepLounge that require you to set up nuanced equations and I'm struggling a little bit with that.

So, if there's a way to practice this that reflects the type of equations that my come up during actual interviews, that'd be helpful. Otherwise I'm fine doing the calculations, it's just the matter of setting up equations that's a little troubling.

Hi,

I recommend going through the GMAT math part and practice the equations there. There are many good books on that.
