Have a case interview with BCG coming up and I’m struggling with setting up the equation during the quant portion of cases. I do fine once I have the equation right. Anyone have any good sites to practice setting up math equations based on business prompts?

Seconding what BCG1 said^

Management consulted helped me a lot. I use their videos to learn and rocket blocks to practice

helpful

Management consulted has great “math structure cases” that go through this specifically. I actually did a coaching session with them before the interview in this very topic and we went through 5 or 6 “mini math structure” cases in an hour. Super helpful and was able to practice those and nail it during the interview

Just to warn you. The coaching session was around $150 (might be more now) It was with Lisa if I remember correctly. But worth it. Got the job a BCG as well so it worked out! It was basically a delivery company in italy, another about a machine of plastic bags, etc. Good luck!

What kind of equations exactly?

Yeah I feel like that’s my biggest issue. I feel pressured to start solving as soon as I see the math. Going to keep reminding myself to take my time.

I have no idea what you are talking about

google algebra word problems or go through case books just practicing the quant problems

Google MBA case books. Almost all the solution sets have tables or formulas that lay out the math structure. Check out vocaprep - paid resource by an ex-McK guy. The cases are good and the solution sets also lay out the math well.
