I studied for 2 weeks for around 6-8 hours per day when I wasn’t working and passed. I think if you carved out 2-4 hours per day and spent more hours on the weekend, you can totally do it!

I did and got a 97. It’s doable. I actually only studied 8 chapters out of 10. I didn’t finish all sims but still ended up with a 97.

Graduating with PhD in comp neuro next year. I just did a week long internship at MBB to check out consulting, which I loved but ultimately will not be accepting my offer for life considerations (my wife also works at MBB and we have young children). It was amazing getting a sense of what the work actually comprises.

Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data science? Would love to test it out for a little bit to see what I like/dislike.

1) Average expected package of an associate
2) Average experience expected at ZS to get hired at associate (not BCN)
3) Good books to upskill and ace the consulting case interviews
