Folks - how do you prep for case interviews in half a week? Any resources you would point me towards? It’s been over 5 years since I last had interviews. Sure I am in consulting but I honestly don’t do this thing on the day to day so am very sure will be very rusty.

Honestly a week isn’t going to cut it for most people. That said, I recommend you learn at the minimum the core consulting case interview frameworks (profitability, growth/market entry strategy, etc.). Plenty of viable resources are available online with a simple Google search for “case interview prep”. If math is your weakness, you’ll want to study some simple arithmetic (multiplication, division, adding, subtracting, fractions, decimals, percentages). Lastly, find someone to practice with using old case books to get a feel for what the questions are like and establish your rhythm. Good luck.

Ask for more time! No good is gonna come out of rushing this.

Thank you! This is case interview for tech though, would they be different?
