About to wrap up a week+ vacation and instead of feeling well-rested and ready to work again, the thought of going back gives me so much dread. I’m not sure if I’m burnt out or depressed or just over where I work. Does anyone else feel like this? If I wasn’t saving for a down payment, I think I would want to take a leave of absence.
Joining Strategy&/PwC soon but have a pre planned vacation. Recruiter had mentioned that it shouldn't be a problem and we can talk as we get closer to joining date to finalize.

I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?
