    The book offers a good but very general overview of the case interview process and could probably do with another case or two. Probably worth 3 or 4 stars.

Look, people who read this kind of book are reasonably smart, they do not need a reminder that you have a website. His "additional resources" section includes neither a mention of Barbara Minto's book which the author has most definitely read nor any other website, book or advice. How someone so well-educated can be so self-absorbed is a little beyond me. This ultimately leads me to question the author's advice and suggests that what is written is simply marketing...

He recommends a number of tools, approaches, frameworks and use cases examples based on his experience and the feedback provided by hundreds of candidates that have gone through the process. Furthermore Cheng provides a number of links to his website to learn more about his recommended frameworks as well as practicing mathematical concepts There is so much good information in this book and with practice one can become confident and success during the interview process whether it be a candidate led or an written case interview. 1. There are many interviewing approaches; known better as evaluation techniques. This can be simple as a quantitative test or estimation question to hypothetical situations. 2. Always have a few frameworks that are memorised and ready. Cheng recommends knowing a profitability, business situation and merger/acquisition framework as they are the most common used frameworks 3. Practice! These frameworks become easy when you have spent 50 - 100 hours of practice. The chance of an offer is increased significantly

    The pages were filled with the author’s ego but every once in a while, he gave some useful tips on how to structure the case interview.

I could have spent those hours practicing the case interview instead!

    A well-written book that provides some clear insights into the thought processes and the tools that management consultants use. Referring to his websites and other (chargeable) services at the end of every chapter was unnecessary and strange.

    Who should read this book? Group 1- Anyone who is contemplating a career in consulting but isn't fully aware of what the job entails/is simply curious what consulting is all about Group 2 - A consultant who's just begun his/her career and needs some additional tips or is simply preparing for job interviews. The book could have been so much better if there were more examples. At one point it gets way too theoretical and lecture-like.

    Definitely a must read for people aiming to land a consulting job. Very clear summary and useful tips on how to break down business problems. I found the frameworks and the analytical structure useful for other fields too, not just business.

    I should have read this earlier. I think it would be great gateway books to start prep for case interview. Content included good overview how consulting industry works. The tips are mostly general advice to solve case interview problem. After reading this, now I know what to do to polish my case interview skill. I would give it 5 starts if author could stop remind me to buy his course every two pages. Seriously.

    A decent book on ways to ace the case study interview process, adopted by top international consulting firms as part of their hiring process. The author, a Stanford and Mckinsey alum, cracks the process for solving complex cases, using different frameworks and models. A good read for those looking to take up careers in consulting.

    Excellent book even if you are not currently interviewing. It helps you getting a good structure for solving any kind of problem. Specially helpful if you are currently working in consulting. The only thing that I didn't like is that Victor tries to sell you his programs and services at the end of every chapter. Besides that, I really liked the book.

    Did you know that there are consultants consulting on how to become a consultant? The competition to get employed at BCG, Bain or McKinsey is murderous so the applicants who prepare ahead of the interview obviously have the upper hand.

Victor Cheng should be well situated to guide the postulant consultant as he’s a former McKinsey interviewer himself and today operates the site caseinterview.com with a similar purpose Did you know that there are consultants consulting on how to become a consultant? The competition to get employed at BCG, Bain or McKinsey is murderous so the applicants who prepare ahead of the interview obviously have the upper hand. This book aims to prepare the hopeful jobseekers for the interviewing process. Victor Cheng should be well situated to guide the postulant consultant as he’s a former McKinsey interviewer himself and today operates the site caseinterview.com with a similar purpose to the book. In preparing the readers for the very specific case interviews that most management consultants use Cheng in effect uses two tracks. Firstly, he tries to make the reader think and behave like a consultant. If he does, the interviewer will feel that this guy is ready to start generating revenues from the beginning. Secondly, the author goes through the various interview types that are used at the big consultancy firms. These are also the ingredients of the book. Half of it presents the analytical process of management consulting and the toolbox that is used. Cheng discusses problem-solving tools like stating an early hypothesis, drilling down correctly structured, mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive issue trees to try to falsify the hypothesis and end with an – often-modified – hypothesis on a solution and finally shows how to effectively present the synthesis of what you’ve concluded. Cheng further presents some frameworks such as a numerical model analyzing the various components of profits and a more qualitative checklist to assess a company’s business situation. In effect two models crucial to analyzing business problems. The other half of the book is a run through of the many interview types, interview sub topics etc. that the major management consultants use – all with explanations why they are relevant for the prospective employer. Here a second purpose of the book emerges and that is to get the readers to use the author’s web-based pre-interview training camp. To be fair though, when I browse at the site most of the material – but not all – is free as long as you register. I’ve never applied to one of the large management consultants, but I’ve worked with a fair amount of their employees and in my experience the toolbox described is spot on. This is exactly how they work and think. The applicant who assimilates the process of the book will mentally be halfway to becoming a consultant. As I think consultants at times are a bit one-track minded, I find it part impressive, part depressing that employees are molded into the same form and shape even before they apply, as only that shape will pass the test and the applicants all know this. The analytical process is highly reductionist, meaning all problems are routinely deconstructed into smaller parts to be solved. In Cheng’s own words “In consulting, linear thinking is highly valued. The creative thinker, who often sees nonobvious, nonlinear connections between very disparate ideas, is not valued very highly.” I totally understand that the firms want consistency and a high minimum level of performance from their employees, but it’s also a bit sad. This is a good book and it certainly delivers on its purpose. As a side comment though I think it could be “prettier”. For example, the pictures give a cheap feeling and are far in-between. If you devote an entire chapter to preparing the optimal power point presentation and the perfect power point slide, why not show a picture of an example? At times there is also a glimpse of the slightly juvenile notion of the consultant as a superman that is so prevalent within the craft. But don’t let this discourage you – if you plan to apply for a job at McKinsey, you should definitely buy Case Interview Secrets. All in all this book delivers, the understanding of the analytical process and the interview situation will both improve the chance of a prosperous – but linear – future at a major consultancy.

    A very well written book about case interview techniques for management consultant. I really really Enjoy the language of Cheng, so logical, convincing and goes straight to the heart. He outlined the types of case interviews and the essential techniques. This is definitely one of the better books I have read this for career development. So there are four essential tools one must master in doing a case interview: hypothesis, issue tree, analysis and synthesis.

I really really Enjoy the language of Cheng, so logical, convincing and goes straight to the heart. He outlined the types of case interviews and the essential techniques. This is definitely one of the better books I have read this for career development. So there are four essential tools one must master in doing a case interview: hypothesis, issue tree, analysis and synthesis. Some important things to remember: - hypothesis is always the core. Do not forget to state it and whatever framework to choose, the fundamental purpose is always to test the hypothesis. The hypothesis can be changed as new insight are gained during the interview. - there are existing frameworks to help construct the issue trees. The price frame work, taking into account the profit = Revenue - cost baseline, is good to review quantitative facts, while business framework (customer, product, company, competitor) is useful to review the qualitative “why” question. The frameworks should be used flexibly based on the hypothesis to test. Why constructing the branches, always keep in mind the MECE concept: mutually exclusive collectively exhaustive. - drill down analysis of the issue tree branches is basically using process of elimination to find the supporting evidence for the hypothesis. It is ok to skip a branch either when one hits a dead end or encounters the aha moment to revise the hypothesis. Always follow a linear logical order through the branches and do not jump around. - In the synthesis phase, always follow the structure starting with the recommendations and then state supporting evidence 123, finally restating the recommendation again to the emphasise. - generally, practise is the most most most important thing after learning the theories. Being consultants confidence is highly important and this can only be solidified with strong technical competence. Keep learning and adjusting. Last but not least, do not ever ever insult the clients!!!

It made me really realize that there is most likely one framework that we all use to problem solve with, and we lean on it automatically, and when we are faced with a problem we cannot solve because we know no other way to solve a problem other than with our own innate style, we are stumped and leave frustrated. This allows you to identify what type of problem is being asked and being able to instantly work using that framework he has given you. Note: reading the book, like finance or language books, do not mean you will be good at case interviews. You are merely taught how to prepare properly. It is up to you to put in the time to practice and prepare for an interview IF you are lucky enough to be offered an interview.

    Unsure whether or not I'll end up spending the time to attempt the interviews, but the idea of using problem sovling frameworks has been a useful tool for software problems and thinking about how to present my logical solution path. I especially like the MECE (mutually exclusive collectively exhaustive) principle, as it encourages thinking about problem structure before the solving process and helps to minimze redundancy during the process.

    The great thing about this book is that Victor is really trying to teach us how to think differently. It's not about memorizing frameworks (he's repeating it several times), but rather changing how you see thing, how you look for solutions, how you combine everything you've learned and how to present your findings... These are invaluable lessons, that you will not find anywhere else. This is definitely something I will have to read over again after some time will have passed.

    Cheng is clearly unashame using this book as part of promotion! Yet it is a good insight for people who doesn't have bar or idea why case interview and what the interviewer is expected from candidates. Basically if you want to apply to top consulting firm, you have to be a consultant first. You need to have structured framework of logic, then just follow up the basic guideline to test hypothesis how the client should work. Cheng is clearly unashame using this book as part of promotion!

    It has valuable ideas, could be much more concise. the case solving approach can be summarized like that 1. the hypothesis - state early, update continuously 2. the tree - be original, it only exists to verify the hypothesis 3. drill down analysis - stop at minimal information necessary, think thorougly 4. synthesis - the result, reasons, the result again

    Perspective - The key deliverable of this book Buy this book if you need to build the right mindset for case study interviews. One may or may not crack consulting interviews solely based on this book, but the thought process training that the Author provides will help structuring every other business problem you encounter everyday.

    The book is really good and well structured and gives a general idea of what is a case interview and how to prepare for it, so I - as a very inexperienced person in this subject - was able to learn a lot. The negative point is that Cheng keeps continuously trying to sell his products, recommending the reader to access his website which is very annoying sometimes.

    Great book on techniques and methods for approaching an interview at a management consulting firm. Some of the methods and techniques can also be applied to real life case scenarios, which is what I found most useful since I am not considering a management consultancy career.

    The content is useful for the most part. Victor comes across quite self-aggrandizing which can be pretty obnoxious at times as well. However since almost all of the Consultants that I have talked to have also recommended this book I figured that I should also read it. Meh.

    Although it is written in a way that exploits your insecurities for you to see the book as your savior, it does offer sound, practical and valuable advice both for future and current consultants. I would recommend it.
