Very good literature for getting started in consulting 6. September 2013
Von thorwaler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Coming from math school, business cases were a bit intimidating and
unfamiliar to me. Nevertheless, I wanted to get into management consulting. Darling's book really helped me understanding the whole process of case interviews better. However, practising case interviews online at Preplounge.com was just as important in my preparation. Well, something must have worked because I landed a job offer from Bain and Company. I can really speak for those coming from a math or any other background than business school: read the book, understand the process, but also practise real cases like you can on Preplounge.

very useful for interview prep 20. Juni 2009
Von RAZ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
There is only 1 question that really matters: will reading this book increase your chances of getting a job at a consulting firm? My vote is "yes" --- or at least, "probably". Having said that, this book is a tough read if you're brand new to business and case interviews. Case In Point is better on that level -- you can read it like a novel almost with no previous knowledge or context and really start to see how things work. This book is the next obvious step. Once you have some sense of what you're doing and you want to build the logic/knowledge base to go from "good to great", read this one. If you're brand new to all of the terms and concepts, it can be a bit overwhelming. It's very focused and content-deep (despite being just 130 pages). For example, the section on how to value mergers and acquisitions is a good overview of the financial literature that's already out there, but synthesized for the level and style of the case interview. It's also well-woven into an overall approach for other case types that makes a complete story as opposed to the independent, isolated frameworks other books provide.

Definite Recommendation! 8. Juni 2009
Von N. Poursharif - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
How to Get Into the Top Consulting Firms: A Surefire Case Interview Method - 2nd Edition
When I bought the book, I was new to the business / consulting world. At the time, I knew nothing about profit trees, how to value acquisitions, synergies, customer segmentation, pricing strategies, drivers and levers, how to be MECE, and most important, what interviewers were looking for in case interviews and consulting candidates. For someone in that position, this book will become a great reference.

Still it's no miracle cure. I believe more now, after having read it, that raw problem solving talent and creativity is key ... and simply having the set of tools and perspective of a pro will not cover for or account for the lack of those. Which makes me wonder whether tools and background are even important at all?

At the very least, a good litmus test for whether you would be a good consultant, or whether you would enjoy a career in consulting, is to see if you enjoy reading the book and if you enjoy / have some success in the cases.

Excellent companion guide to Case in Point 23. Juni 2009
Von Hatman1980 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Overall, I think the book is a great resource for MBA and undergraduate students preparing for case interviews. In fact, it is one of the resources we recommend to the members of our MBA consulting club at the Ross School of Business (University of Michigan).

"How to Get Into the Top Consulting Firms" addresses the science behind the consulting interview process, making it a great companion to Marc Cosentino's "Case in Point". While other books focus mainly on case interviews, Tim does a great job delving into all aspect of the interview process (fit, networking, resume, cases, etc.). While it isn't as rich in frameworks as Case In Point, I like the fact that Tim presents one framework that can be utilized for 80% of cases and then provides a deep dive into the application of this framework for different types of cases (pricing, M&A, new product/market entry). He also offers an approach to striking "a balance between structure, creativity and flexibility" - which is something that trips up many consulting candidates.

The example cases are a great resource to practice the lessons learned throughout the book. They are mock interview friendly and offer an appropriate level of increasing difficulty.

Since recruiting start so early at the MBA level (September/October), I recommend getting reading "How to Get Into the Top Consulting Firms" and "Case in Point" over the summer to get a head start.

The best case-interview guide 18. April 2012
Von Leonid - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book offers the best way to structure your cases. In fact, to me it seems the author's way is the only good way to do it. It is memorable, fine, and - from my experience - really what consultants want to hear from you. Case in Point offers no structure, but a random set of questions to ask (which is a 100% failure), Crack the Case is messy and doesn't allow you to go 80/20 - and also offers you no tree-structure guide.
Advices on resumes are extremely helpful, the author doesn't make a tiny slip and makes you want to believe him, thanks to the perfect logic and structure of the book itself.

If you want a follow up and a nice set of frameworks to sort of dress up the structure provided in this book - which you want if your case or business experience is limited - go for the Harvard Business School Case Interview Guide. I believe, the combo is gonna make you perfect, provided you practice enough.
