Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies.

Looking to improve my verbal communication and interviewing skills. I am not very succinct and tend to ramble on. My vocabulary and phrasing is pretty standard and many times I struggle to find the right words. I do well when I am prepared but do an okay job with speaking on the spot. I want to get sharper in my verbal communication and more confident. For context, I am not a native speaker and at the SM level going for Partner in a couple of years.I would love recommendations on how to improve.
