Is this product the right choice for you?

As one of the largest and most prestigious consultancies worldwide, the Boston Consulting Group uses the BCG Potential Test as a tough first hurdle during their selection process. Many candidates already get eliminated at this stage, but by providing you with the best test practice material coach Francesco wants to make sure that you are not one of them! His practice BCG Potential Tests will give you the real test experience and avoid any surprises on the actual test day. The test covers all challenging question types that can await you during the test.

NOTE: if you are preparing for the BCG Online Case, this is NOT the right product for you! The format of that test is different. Instead, you can check our flagship product, the BCG Online Case Combo, which includes everything to prepare for that test.

While this guide is targeted towards the BCG Potential Test, I nonetheless found it very useful in terms of practicing for the BCG Online Case Experience test. The trickiest part of the Online Case was the math, and going through the questions in this guide will mentally prepare you for it. Definitely consider purchasing this guide even if you're not being tested via the PST!

This practice BCG Potential Test was really helpful with my preparation and I highly recommend it. It was very realistic, helping me to get used to the format and difficulty of the actual test. This mock test from Francesco provides a full set of instructions and a scoring system for you to mark and score yourself. Finally, detailed and logical workings are provided to ensure you understand how to get the correct solution.

This guide is well-prepared and would definitely allow someone to get familiar with the different aspects of the BCG online test in terms of format, difficulties, types of skills needed to succeed in the test. Would definitely recommend to anyone that will have this test coming up for them.

The material is very well done and could be useful if you want to understand better how the actual test is, if want to learn how to build the logical to answer the questions or just to pratice. My only caveat is that the test structure can be different depending on the country of application, making this test not so useful if is the case. So it would be interesting to find out how your country was doing the test in previous years and see if check with the PrepLounge model.

24/05/21 EDIT: Happy to say I published now a guide also on the Onlne Case ;) You can find it here:

Hi there, thanks for your feedback! Indeed not all the offices are using now the Potential Test. Some have started to use a different version with a chatbot. The format of this test is 23 questions in 45 minutes, thus it doesn't resemble the chatbot version. On the other hand, many candidates found it useful to train for the math part of the chatbot as well. For any additional feedback please feel free to PM me, I would be happy to help.

Was not relevant for me at the BCG Online Case (Applied in Germany). The format of my Online Interview was different. Do not know whether they recently changed the format or it's country specific

Hi there,

Thanks for your feedback, I am sorry to see you had some issues with the purchase. It seems you bought the wrong product - this test is to practice for the BCG Potential Test and not for the BCG Online Case.

As mentioned in the description, the right guide for the BCG Online Case is the following one:

Given BCG Potential Test practice can still be useful for the math part of the BCG Online Case, I have currently included it for free in that guide at the link above, so I am not sure why you purchased it separately.

Please feel free to message me (you can do so here: and I can help you to get access to the right guide / help you with the issue.
