    Prep materials for BCG Potential Test

    BCG BCG Potential Test bcgtest
    Most recent answer on Nov 19, 2020
    <p>Hi guys,</p> <p>I will have the test with BCG this Oct. 30. Can you please share with me any prep materials that you have for the test?</p> <p>Thank you so much!! </p> <p>P/S: In exchange, I worked for BCG as a contractor last summer. I can give you some insights if you have any questions regarding the firm.</p>
    PrepLounge has solid materials to prepare for the McK PST, these tests are similar enough that prepping for one will also get you ready for the other.
