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.

  • 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

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    The book is a combination of two parts – the actual case interview process and more importantly the rationale behind it. I used Victor Cheng’s online resources as a starting point to familiarize myself with the process but used other books for actual practice examples as well as the summary on key frameworks (more as source since I developed my own frameworks and approach that I was comfortable with rather than memorize).

    While preparing with practice questions, Victor’s email newsletters were particularly useful in modifying or developing my own approach and this book condenses many of the important ‘advice’ that Victor provides in his mails. This book is NOT a collection of practice questions – it covers the basic problem types and standard frameworks. But the rationale behind the case interview process and consulting work is way more important and helps any candidate modify his/her approach. Frameworks can be sourced or developed from anywhere – books, B-school notes etc and there are many practice materials on the net. However, chapters 17-26 are perhaps the most important – the “How to” for different formats and other softer issues like projecting confidence. In the beginning of my prep, I was to focused on getting the answer or my methodology but only after reading victor’s mails and this book did I consciously pay attention to how I came across – engaging the interviewer, using paper effectively etc. which in my experience helped tremendously in getting through.

    My advice – read this book in parts and at frequent intervals during the preparation and get a bank of practice questions from other sources – books, careers office, or just online. For aspirants I would also recommend signing up for Victor’s newsletter – reading advice on a regular basis cements it in your behaviour much more effectively than just reading this book once.

    Most useful business book I read in 2012, January 31, 2013

    Vince Ricci “miso man” (Tokyo, Japan) –

    This review is from: Case Interview Secrets: A Former McKinsey Interviewer Reveals How to Get Multiple Job Offers in Consulting (Paperback)
    I am a leading MBA admissions consultant (VincePrep). Even though I am not trying to join a management consulting firm, I found Victor’s book to be a priceless resource in my consulting practice for two reasons. First, he helped me understand the consulting industry (Why do companies hire consulting firms? Why do consulting firms hire some candidates, and not others?). Second, and more importantly, he gave me the tools to clarify the assumptions I make every day.

    It was introduced by a former client, who recently joined McKinsey. From 2013, Victor’s book will be required reading for my MBA admissions counseling clients, especially those looking to join consulting firms post-MBA.

    Whatever your industry sector or future career plans, I recommend “Case Interview Secrets” as a useful toolbox that can help you persuade others to support your ideas.

    Thank you, Victor!
