Yeah that's what I meant

@A1 I was just reiterating the suggestion. That should be OP's case prep bible.

I'm preparing for a case interview in one of the big 4 companies in the role of technology advisory role.

All resources I found on the internet for case studies are related to management consulting, not technology consulting.

May anyone let me know what resources shall I read to prepare for case study in technology?

Thank you.
