Incoming APD to McK from PhD...

I used Cosentino's "Case in Point" and Victor Cheng's "Case Interview Secrets"; equally (if not more important) was casing. It was a lot of fun but took up a lot of time. You can do it!

Hi Mohammad,
I confirm Cosentino and Cheng books are enough to fix the fundamentals. Then I recommend practicing with good cases, in particular ones really assigned from firms during interviews.

Best,
Antonello

Hello!

After seeing a lot of consulting books and prep materials, I came to the conclusion that all work... since they are very similar -both in terms of cases and frameworks-.

The classics are for sure Viktor Cheng and Case in Point, but I also liked a lot ESADE´s book with BCG from years ago.

In any case, don´t go crazy about it, they are pretty similar and all good to gain practice. The key to success here is practice, practice, practice + get good and actionable feedback to advance.

Hope it helps! Cheers,

Clara
