5.0 von 5 Sternen Die beste Vorbereitung für das Case Interview 11. Februar 2015
Von Isabel
Case In Point ist meiner Ansicht nach eins der besten, wenn nicht DAS beste Buch, um sich auf das Case Interview vorzubereiten. Es lässt sich gut lesen und ist gerade für mich als BWL-Laie ein super Einstieg in die Theorie des Case Interviews. Es weist eine Vielzahl an Beispiel-Cases vor und gibt einen Überblick über grundlegende Frameworks.
Ich habe die Cases des Buches vor allem mit meinen Case Partnern auf Preplounge geübt, eine Online-Plattform, auf der man Case Partner finden und mit Ihnen Case Interviews simulieren kann. Die Kombination aus der Theorie von Case in Point und der Umsetzung in die Praxis auf Preplounge ist meines Erachtens die beste Vorbereitung auf das Case Interview.

Das Buch ist super um einen ersten Start ins Training von Case Interviews zu haben. Allerdings sind die vorgestellten Frameworks meines Erachtens etwas zu komplex. Trotzdem kann man sich gut damit vorbereiten.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good paired with Crack the Case 21. Oktober 2013
Von bree1241 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Case in Point is the go-to book for consulting candidates and those preparing for an interview.

- Case in Point is really abundant in providing practice cases and their solutions. I found these cases incredibly helpful in understanding different industry problems as well as different types of case questions.
- This book is good for practicing Profit/Loss, M&A, new business or geography, losing/gaining market share, and competitor attack cases

- Where this book is great at providing practice cases, it fails at providing a deep understanding for exactly HOW to crack these cases.
- The frameworks that this books provides are very weak, and shallow.
- The author settles for simple frameworks like "The Four C's", "The Four P's" and "Profit= Revenue-Loss". While these frameworks are relevant, they're very weak and will make you look like an amateur to your interviewer.

For that reason, I would recommend pairing this book with "Crack the Case" by David Ohrvall. Crack the Case is almost the opposite of Case in Point. CTC has excellent frameworks and really helps you understand the business knowledge behind doing well on cases. However, CTC lacks good practice cases: they're difficult to practice alone and unnecessarily complicated to practice with a partner. Moreover, they don't provide a clear and in depth solution that helps you strengthen your original answer.

DISCLAIMER FOR KINDLE PURCHASES: Case in Point isn't well-suited for kindle reading. The book has a lot of embedded charts that don't show properly on kindles. The text comes out extremely small and difficult to read. Also, for general text, where bullet points are used, the format doesn't line up and looks sloppy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Helpful Case Interview "Bible" with some flaws 7. April 2014
Von Caroline Reilly - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is the basics of how to pass a case interview and covers the topic in a very inclusive and practical way. It outlines how to think about consulting and what the role of case interviews are within the consulting process. There are excellent structures and even some "insider" information about certain firms preferences. It also allows the reader to recruit friends/others to help with the preparation process. I would highly recommend it.

However, the author is arrogant, pompous and a bit self serving. His side discussions about the Ivy league and his prominent role in advising students at Harvard eventually grow tiresome. The example stories travel from their purpose of qualifying the author as an authority in case preparation to a discomforting play by play of a man validating the worth of his advice via the reflected glow of his employer's MBA ranking.

In further editions, I would recommend the author pull back on this sort of story telling. At this point in the life to the book, the credibility of the author is not in question. Perhaps now, it is the likability of the author's writing that could motivate the trust of a nervous consulting candidate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best-Seller for a Reason: Results! 26. November 2013
Von AG - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Case in Point brought me from business novice to McKinsey business analyst in a matter of weeks! I am a humanities concentrator who decided to go into consulting over the summer, and it helped me get up to speed right away. Marc has so many years of experience that have been distilled into a single text, presented in a way that's accessible to anyone who decides to read it. Thanks to the tools it taught me for evaluating business problems, I was complimented time and time again for the way I structured my cases. If you buy this book and practice hard, you, too may land a job at a top firm!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Case Interview Bible 6. Februar 2014
Von Ray S. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are like me, than you had never seen (nor heard of) a case interview before business school. By practicing the methods taught in Marc's book, you will be able to tear through case questions with thoroughness and efficiency. Considering that many companies are switching to case style interviews, it would be a mistake not to hone your skills in this area. I recommend this book to anyone in business school as well as any job seekers looking to nail an interview.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't know where to start? Intimidated? This book legit shows you everything you need to know 29. Juli 2015
Von Annie - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is essential for the committed and someone who really wants to understand the way of thinking that is required for case interviews - it's thorough, easily digestible, and provides many many cases to walk through.

CIP prepped me from knowing 0 to being told by a couple of my interviewers that I was the best they'd ever seen...I know I couldn't have been as prepared and confident if it wasn't for this book. I literally couldn't do a case 2 weeks before the interview, no joke.

The book provides 12 frameworks plus some (I believe the 8th edition breaks them into 4 larger groups but I personally preferred the 12 featured in prior versions. It's the same material but just organized easier for someone who really doesn't know where to begin). It also provides so many cases- I especially appreciated the cases that provide interviewer-interviewee walk helped me understand how cases should go, and since I didn't have many people to practice with, it was a great self-study tool.

Some people say it's too much info or I saw another instructor call it out for having too many frameworks, but honestly, if you are somehow who likes to deeply understand the material and wants to deeply understand frameworks which then you can take pieces from and make your own when you do a case, if that's what makes you comfortable and builds your confidence, definitely get this book.

I also had the opportunity to use Marc's additional materials online...this was huge!!!! It helped me practice on my own (vs read), provided great drills, and also had some helpful videos to watch others in their cases. If you have any additional money, I would totally invest in these materials...they are entirely worth it and felt like a huge differentiator in my practice.

These interviews can be stressful and the pressure of knowing it's usually a one-and-done can sometimes feel overwhelming. But if you take the time and really go through this book in and out, and can use the online materials, I swear it makes a difference. I was there and I felt I could never learn this stuff, but it's a learned way of thinking and once you know it, you'll nail it. But it requires work and commitment, and this book is for someone who is willing to put the effort in. You will be so prepared, just like I was, and blow yourself away after realizing all the hard work paid off.
