Don’t try and prep now - trust on your abilities. It’s going to be absolutely fine. Try and make friends w the other person and you’ll feel comfortable

This is bad advice if OP has never done case prep before. It's possible this is their first time doing a consulting interview.

I did a phone case with mckinsey last summer. Just think of it as a normal case interview with basic math, since it's over the phone there won't be any charts or diagrams of course. Very basic.

Very basic happy to chat and run cases
