Download a pdf of Case in point and read it. Then watch the Crafting Cases free course. Then get some case book PDFs and start practicing on preplounge or case coach or wherever with real people.

For me, crafting cases was the only one that helped me get really good. Like, no major areas of improvement good. The free course is worth way more than they sell it for (obv) and the others can be helpful too.

The other courses? Yes, only between the first and second round. I didn't end up using most of what I learned from the market sizing course directly as I didn't get any of those questions. However, there were some small tricks that were relevant and it helped me structure ideas logically and break them down.

I used case coach and thought that was helpful. I had never done a case before and was able to prepare sufficiently for my interview in 3 weeks.
