Victor Cheng, a former McKinsey management consultant, reveals his proven, insider's method for acing the case interview.

Cheng s protegees work in all the major strategy management consulting firms, including McKinsey, The Boston Consulting Group, Bain & Company, Monitor Company, A.T.

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.

Before you even begin to read - the author offers bonus tools that will assist the reader with achieving their objectives. Additionally, current informative feedback from former readers of the book are inspirational for the consultant job hunter.
This book is a great tool for anyone who wants to get over the hurdles. It is alarming how many minutes it takes to actually knock yourself out of a job opportunity. The author states that " the interview is essentially over even before it has begun"; this reveals how critical it is to answer case questions.
The best quote for a job seeker " the candidate who stands out the most in an interview is the one who acts like a consultant already." This book will get you there. He will show you a core problem solving tool that can be used during an interview as well as on the job.
This book has ample examples that will get you through the interview process. You can't put a price on the value of information that you will learn to enhance your own career.
The author emphasis is that "if you hate case interviews then you likely will hate the job."
Other items worth mentioning"
Chp 6 - (A Gem) What every interviewer looks for and why. . .
Chp 11 - synthesis has a powerhouse of information that gets you closer to the offer letter.
CHP 24 - leads you to How to get multiple Job offers - The Benchmark of hours practice for success.
I do wish there were more practice materials that were included with the book or free supplementary materials. Victor's website and emails are great- he does an incredible job maintaining his website and provide daily updates that are useful to read. So sign up for his website and use the materials. Nevertheless, It does seem like part of its purpose is to get you to buy his many programs, which, to be fair, seem extremely thorough and well made. I just do not have the funding to spend $100 on a (seemingly very high-quality) resume builder aid.
In short, buy the book, use the book, and you will feel much more confident about your upcoming case interview.
I would say this book is a must-have. and you should use that to reinforce your reasoning of building a structure for your case interview preparations.
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.
