Additional Posts in Case Interview Prep


Lots of questions here but I’m sure this will help those prepping along with those looking for where to begin: How long did you prep/are you prepping for your case interviews? How did you start and in hindsight was there a better way? What was your favorite case prep resources, books, or courses? What was the least helpful resource that you wish you hadn’t wasted time on? How did you build up your business acumen and creativity? What is your weakest section of the interview currently?
