Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

For the past two decades Marc Cosentino's work has towered over the field of case interviews. The Wall Street Journal calls his book Case in Point the MBA Bible which is one of the many reasons why Cosentino is the world's foremost authority on case interviewing. He is CEO of CaseQuestions.com and a popular and sought after speaker. Over the past 25 years he has advised and coached over 100,000 students and alumni. Case in Point, is not only the number one selling case book world-wide, but is also the number two selling interview book world-wide and the top book in the field of consulting as well. CIP is purchased in bulk by many of the top MBA consulting clubs including Harvard Business School, Wharton, Tuck and University of Michigan as well as three of the top strategy consulting firms. Case in Point is now published in four languages. Cosentino has given workshops worldwide to MBA and college students and has held training sessions for career services professionals. He has consulted with and designed cases for private sector firms, government agencies and non-profits. In addition, Marc has trained corporate and academic PhD's to think like business executives. Cosentino is a graduate of Harvard's Kennedy School, Harvard's Program on Negotiation and the University of Denver. Marc Cosentino's other books include The Marketing Case Interview (2013), The Harvard Guide to Consulting, The Harvard Guide to Case Interviews and The Harvard Guide to Investment Banking.

Format: Taschenbuch
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.

Perfekt für die Vorbereitung zu Bewerbungsgesprächen für die Unternehmensberatung und allgemein für Bewerbungsgespräche in der Industrie. Es weckt tolle Gedanken und regt zum einfachen Lernen von Frameworks an, die gut funktionieren.

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.

HASH(0x90876f54) von 5 Sternen Good paired with Crack the Case 21. Oktober 2013
Von breezybreezy - 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.

- 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.

HASH(0x8f08899c) von 5 Sternen Consentino is a MUST READ for interview preparation 23. September 2013
Von David P. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've read several books about case interview preparation but "Case in Point" is by far the best one I've ever read. It does not only give great insights into the business, it's also quite entertaining and Cosentino is for true the Dean of case interview preparation. He gives 40 cases, all up-to-date and challenging as well. However, besides this book, I also prepared myself on preplounge.com to put theory into practice and finally land my dream job. So, Consentino is a MUST READ for interview preparation but make sure you also get real training with others!

HASH(0x8f0888dc) von 5 Sternen Beware of Kindle edition 18. Februar 2013
Von Anna Kyrki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book is great as such, but the Kindle edition is not. There are mistakes in the tables and some tables are completely missing. I'm trying to practice cracking cases with the help of this book, but missing data makes the task really annoying.

HASH(0x9e1a04b0) von 5 Sternen An essential tool for case interview prep, but frameworks too strict. 26. August 2012
Von Kyle W. Harpole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
(As a note, I am approaching this book as a Life Sciences Ph.D. student looking to transition into Management Consulting, so my thoughts and opinions will reflect as such)

Cosentino's book is an absolute staple in preparing for your case interviews. The first few chapters provide valuable information about what to expect in the interview (and what is expected from you). Perhaps the most valuable portion of the book is the number of case questions that sample the different 'varietals' of cases you might encounter.

Also provided in the book are numerous frameworks for tackling this variety of case questions, referred to as the Ivy Case System. While I think this is an excellent approach that many subscribe to, my opinion is that trying to master (or worse, memorize) so many frameworks makes a candidate run the risk of trying to diagnose every case question as one of these types of problems, which may make you appear to be too formulaic in your thinking. Keep in mind that interviewers are aware of the case interview prep that's out there and will plan accordingly to trip you up. As Cosentino states, there's a lot of overlap in the frameworks, so I would recommend approaching the frameworks as a means of understanding the main ideas and getting a feel for the types of questions you will be asking.

Personally, I prefer the framworks used by ex-McKinseyite and consulting prep role model Victor Cheng in his recent book (Case Interview Secrets: A Former McKinsey Interviewer Reveals How to Get Multiple Job Offers in Consulting. I have "cross-bred" the frameworks from CIP with those in Victor Cheng's book. I would recommend owning both of these books and deciding for yourself which frameworks you prefer to use. Some may prefer the CIP frameworks over the Cheng frameworks as the latter may seem too vague and don't allow for a structured approach. Just be cautious about being too punctilious with the CIP frameworks.

HASH(0x8f088abc) 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.
