Tips for prepping for case interviews for an interview in 2 weeks? Really quite rusty

Ask defining questions, ask for data, walk them through your thought process in a concise yet effective manner. Understand scope first, then reiterate problem, reiterate solution that is being looked for, go through outline of how you’re developing solution, what factors you’re taking in, can always ask for clarification and alignment, begin “solution development”, provide conclusion of overall solution based off of inputs and scope. At the end of the day, no one expects you to have a 100% correct answer, as long as it’s reasonable and you have good situational awareness, you’ll be fine. One thing I’ve learned is don’t overprep to the point you’re robotic, let it come naturally and speak to your thought process and you should be good! Best of luck!
