Very difficult if you go into it with no prep and not knowing what a case interview is Very doable if you prepare and master the format Some people take 5 practice cases to get it, some people take 50. Most are in the 15-30 range

Did you confirm if phone eval has a case? Seems like phone evals are just to gauge fit/preparedness and determine if you should be invited for an interview or not. 2 weeks is a short amount of time to learn casing. Also Victor Cheng is pretty cookie cutter stuff. Use that as a starting point to develop your own frameworks that you can then customize to the industry/issue at hand

8.1 out of an 11 point scale.
