    Guys,
    I have some case interviews coming up with four leading consulting firms (including MBB) over the next two months. So far my friends have adviced me to study:

    – Victor Cheng’s website (ex-mckinsey), who gives a lot of free videos and frameworks to study (www.caseinterview.com)
    – Case in Point by mark consentino (amazon)
    – case interview Success by tom rochtus (www.aceyourcase.com)
    – Solving the World’s Problems on the Back of a Cocktail Napkin by lawrence weinstein (amazon)

    Any feedback on these sources? Any additional things you guys would have a look at?

    thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately I’ve been out of the consulting world too long to feel confident giving you specific up-to-date resources. This article was originally from 2005 (transferred to this version of this site in early 2007), so it’s been around 6 years now. The best idea I can suggest at this point is to check the sites of the firms you’re interviewing with. Several have case study interview examples online so it might give you a better idea of their individual styles.

    I have an another idea that help the candidate to prepare for his interview that is he/she should take the advice of interview coach. Hiring an interview coach for successfully cracking the interview. It might give you a better idea to grab the job.

    I also recommend Preplounge.com which is an online community where you can meet and practice case interviews with case partners. Also you can meet experts (ex-consultants) there.
