In Case Interview Secrets, you'll discover step-by-step instructions on how to dominate what many consider to be the most complex, most difficult, and most intimidating corporate job interview in the world--the infamous case interview. Victor Cheng, a former McKinsey management consultant, reveals his proven, insider's method for acing the case interview. Having personally secured job offers from McKinsey, Bain & Company, Monitor, L.E.K, Oliver Wyman, and A.T. Kearney, he has also been a McKinsey case interviewer--providing you with a hands-on, real-world perspective on what it really takes to land job offers. Cheng's protegees work in all the major strategy management consulting firms, including McKinsey, The Boston Consulting Group, Bain & Company, Monitor Company, A.T. Kearny, Oliver Wyman, L.E.K, Roland Berger, Accenture, and Deloitte, as well as in the strategic planning departments of numerous Fortune 500 companies. Whether you're an undergraduate, MBA, PhD, or experienced-hire applicant candidate, you'll discover: * What case interviewers really say about you behind closed doors but wouldn't dare tell you--until now * The subtle yet specific performance differences that separate those who get management consulting offers from those who don't * The 10 biggest mistakes candidates make in case interviews (and how to avoid them) * The 3 specific things interviewers expect in the first 5 minutes of a case that often decide the outcome on the spot * An insider's take on what interviewers really look for and why--and how to give them what they want Praise for Victor Cheng and Case Interview Secrets "With Victor's help, I went from not knowing anything about consulting to securing offers from McKinsey and BCG." --Mihnea Munteanu, University of Michigan "I received six offers--from McKinsey, BCG, Booz, Deloitte, A.T. Kearney, and Marakon. Everything Victor said was right!" --Michael Yang, Northwestern University "Despite having a liberal arts degree from a state school, I landed a dream job with L.E.K. Consulting. Thanks, Victor." --Jackson Boyar, Indiana University "Victor has put me in a very difficult position--now I have to decide between offers from two of the top three consultancies!" --Christopher Perez, The Wharton School "In my first attempt to break into consulting, I failed every one of my interviews with McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Oliver Wyman, Monitor, Booz and probably a few others. On my second attempt two years later, I followed everything Victor Cheng suggested and took advantage of every resource he provided ... and received an offer from McKinsey!" --Daniel Suo, Business Analyst (Offer Recipient), McKinsey, Stamford "Without Victor's help, I never would have gotten an offer from BCG. What he teaches really makes the difference between getting an offer and not." --Puttipath Tasnavites, Boston Consulting Group, Thailand "After following Victor's guidance, I had a complete breakthrough in my case interview performance and got an offer from Monitor." --Marine Serres, Monitor & Company "As a PhD candidate in engineering, I had an academic background that left me completely unprepared for the case interview process. That's when I found Victor Cheng and ended up getting my dream job. Thank you, Victor!" --Zach Jacobson, McKinsey, New York About the Author As a former McKinsey consultant, resume screener, and case interviewer, Victor Cheng mentors thousands of aspiring consultants via his articles and video tutorials at www.caseinterview.com.

Here's how the book helped me. I came across this book just 24 hours before my case interview. I worked through the book and zeroed in on sections I thought were most important for me. I focused most on the frameworks that Victor Cheng presents. I learned the frameworks and created practice scenarios using situations I had experienced.
At the end of my preparation I felt very confident that I could lead a case interview conversation. And that is what mattered most. Confidence. Because, of course, in the interview, none of the frameworks exactly applied. But my mind was prepared to think in terms of frameworks. That was really helpful. When I arrived at the interview, I was ready to go to the white board and lead a discussion knowing I had frameworks to draw on.
But the book is much more than a set of frameworks. The book also explains how to structure your case discussion. There is specific guidance for creating an opening, analysis, and closing for your case. This gives you a great view of how to create a discussion on-the-fly, which is what you have to do in a case interview.
This book delivers the content, and sets your frame of mind, so that you can confidently enter a case interview.
All I want to add is that, comparing Case Interview Secrets to other books about case interview preparation, I found it to provide the most structured, clearly enunciated and solid approach to case interviewing. Sure, it does not include case material; the author is aware you can find those in many other books available. Instead, he insists on the crucial details that help you build the right mindset and habits, and most of all, those that help you build a consistent, logical and focused method for solving cases. Why? Because Victor Cheng is talking to you from the perspective of an actual, experienced consultant, and a seasoned interviewer, and helps you understand what consulting firms are looking for in you. That's a tremendously valuable perspective.
This book alone won't be enough for your case interview preparation, but it's the one single book, in my view, you cannot do without.
The book itself is good, and it provides you what it promises: a good starting point in structuring your answers for job interviews in the major consulting management's firms. Though, it lack of practice cases, and it is self-referenced all the time (things like: "check my blog for further information", and then you have to pay extra for it.). The main claim of this book is practice at least 100 hours, but it does not provide cases to practice in the first place.
Other than that, I think it is a good starting point. I'm trying Cosentino's book now.
Cheng is a former McKinsey associate who has a deep understanding of the case interview process and exactly what interviewers are looking for. He has broken down the components of the interview process as follows: Quantitative assessments, fundamentals, frameworks, candidate-led cases, variations on the candidate-led case, and getting the offer. Unlike Cosentino's "Case in Point," there are only a few frameworks to remember. These frameworks are more flexible than Cosentino's and rely more on the candidate's ability to think and analyze rather than the candidate's ability to memorize a large number of more rigid frameworks.
On a personal note, using the tools in this book helped me ace the interview process in a professional field other than consulting. Cheng's suggestion that the candidate practice sharing their thought process in a clear, confident, and concise way is key in demonstrating the candidate's potential value to a firm.
