Memorizing frameworks is not good preparation for a consulting case study interview. You need to be at ease in the consulting case setting. Proficiency with ‘case study math’ is crucial for that. Use CaseBase to learn the techniques, practice the math, and put it all into use with case studies sourced from the leading consulting firms.

PRAISE FOR CASEBASE
“Great prep. As someone whose works in management consulting and has gone through tons of cases with applicants, I’ll say this app is great preparation whether sitting down for a while to hammer on a case or quickly flipping through some mental math.”

From The Wall Street Journal:
“Mel Wolfgang, BCG’s head of recruiting in the Americas, interviews about 100 students every year and says he can tell when someone sounds too “scripted.” “It’s sort of painful,” he says, about hearing such responses.”
Consulting case interview preparation is wasted time if it takes the wrong form. Today’s most commonly used guides outline elaborate frameworks for the reader to memorize and detail point by point how candidates should present themselves. But when you approach each case and question with a prefabricated answer your responses become formulaic, not insightful. Almost without exception, this is painfully obvious to the interviewer.
As with any pursuit, the best preparation will focus on building a solid foundation. That means developing a close familiarity with the material and calculations you’ll face in consulting case study interviews as well as learning to form and articulate conclusions based on limited information.
This guide was designed to provide that sort of preparation. First and foremost it offers instruction and practice in the type of math that underlies these case interviews. Then, with the accompanying cases you will break down and solve actual interview questions sourced from leading consulting firms.
