If you haven't already, buy the book Case in Point by Marc Cosentino.

Thanks I'll check it out! Looks there are other books out there that help for the same area: How to Get Into the Top Consulting Firms: A Surefire Case Interview Method and The Boston Consulting Group on Strategy: Classic Concepts and New Perspectives.

I think the best two hands down are Case in Point and How To Get Into the Top Consulting Firms. The latter doesn't have a structure as solid as the former (it has one big structure so it makes it easy to memorize, but lacks detail in some of the specific cases), however it has amazing cases at the end that work great with a partner. The cases in Case in Point are easy to read, but are quite difficult to practice.

I'd also try to find the Wharton Casebook and Tuck Casebook... both are free and contain many cases!

I am surprised to not see anything mentioned about
LOMS by victor cheng - ex mckinsey
- focused around key frameworks, and life training (audio)

Case Interview Success by tom rochtus - Bain & company
-focused on behavioral aspects of the case interview, and focused frameworks

In Europe these two are probably the most used resources to train for case interviews. Case In point I personally found it too general, it provides 100 framework to say, instead of a couple of generala ones applicable for more, which is better I feel...

I am now in my second round for McKinsey, and I'm still looking for more resources... Anyone has input from non-conventional sources (otherwisre I have probably already used it )

best,
Mihael

I agree with mihael that Case in Point may not be the best choice for everyone because it tries to force fit everything into a particular framework. Here's a blog post which contains information on the victor's frameworks and feedback from a user of the LOMS program.

Yes, there is one website that is useful for finding case interview questions given by consulting firms like McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Booz, ATKearney, Accenture, Deloitte Consulting, etc:

I don't really like consultingcase101 since they introduced the pay wall. You need to pay to see the answers. Loms is great, but costs a lot of money.

If you need general help, I recently stumbled on a blog I don't see mentioned anywhere, but I can't link to it since I'm a junior member. I already mentioned it in the thread on the McKinsey PST, but you can find it when googling for "caseinterviewhq".

Their resources helped me prepare for my McKinsey PST test. Now I'm preparing for case interviews.
Anyone interested in practicing case interviews on Skype?

The most effective way for us to assess your problem-solving skills is to discuss a typical McKinsey business problem with you, using two different case studies during your interviews
1.How you will be evaluated
2.How the case interview benefits you
3.Practicing before a case interview

You can post a message on consultingcase101's case interview partner page:
http://www.consultingcase101.com/case-p ... 2013-2014/

I got tons of responses there.

As someone who's recruited both undergrads and MBAs for consulting, I'd say that Case in Point is much more relevant for undergrads, while some of the other ones mentioned here (Victor Cheng's book) are better for MBAs. MBA cases are more holistic in focus than those for undergrads.
