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 Helpful Case Interview "Bible" with some flaws 7. April 2014
Von Caroline Reilly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.

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

Pros:
- 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

Cons
- 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Case Interview Bible 6. Februar 2014
Von Ray S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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 The Best-Seller for a Reason: Results! 26. November 2013
Von AG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Used this book to ace several case interviews 23. Februar 2014
Von Elizabeth Ann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I ordered this book to prepare for case interviews with management consulting companies. I do not have a business background so I was worried this book wouldn't be for people like me. Fortunately, I was wrong, as this book gives you everything you need to know. Some of Cosentino's advice requires referring to other resources, so expect to put the work and time in if you want to succeed at case interviewing. That said, I don't think everyone needs to do as much practice as he says. My first interview was only a few weeks after I heard about case interviewing, so I certainly did not do hundreds of practice interviews in that time. However, I did take his advice to heart and used the methods he describes as a general framework. The actual case interviews were pleasant and I felt they went really well. The interviewer also thought it went well - I received great feedback and was even told that they couldn't think of something to suggest for "Areas to Improve."

I am removing one star because the Kindle edition has some formatting issues with the charts and tables. There were several instances where the charts did not display correctly, and other charts that were missing (I checked the book using several devices, including a Kindle, an iPad, and a MacBook). Cosentino's tables summarizing the steps he suggest are some of the most valuable content in the book, so I'd recommend getting the physical book instead of the Kindle edition.
