I got an offer from one of the MBB!!! And I wouldn't have made it without Florian's help!

Case interview is intimidating at first, but I gained confidence step-by-step through Florian's coaching! His approach focuses on behavior-based techniques that clarify what to do in each step of the interview process, and he provides detailed, actionable feedback after each mock interview session, helping me understand my strengths and areas for improvement. Between session, I could use tons of targeted, self-paced learning resources on the platform to address weaknesses and come back stronger for the next practice.

What I love most about this experience is Florian's warm personality, which alleviates much of the pressure when working with a professional coach and when the real interviews are coming. At the end of the day, I don't just get a coach ; I actually gain a supportive, experienced friend to accompany me on this challenging yet rewarding journey!

The guide was helpful for the ecosystem and the phases of the redrock. I managed to complete both with time left due to the instructions and I did well.

I experienced one surprise my Solve took 30 minutes longer totalling 1.30 and included a 3rd game about microbes to select for cleaning ocean water. This was not stated in the guide and it's unclear how I did in this part of the assessment.

These charts and exhibits are unparalleled in the market. and Florian's method of how you should approach these exhibits is excellent and unique. If you look around you will find no match to these exhibits types/insights as practice materials. they will develop your buisness sense, and make you ready to tackle any exhibit you can encounter. I highly recommend buying these drills. No casebooks or other materials are as exhaustive as these materials.

This course, is the best in the market. I started preparing a while ago for my upcoming interviews at MBB. After reading couple of books and seeing the materials behind the paywalls through other friends, I have realized that nothing even matches the drills here. they contemporary, following the latest business trends, and they teach how to think from first principles if you put the time and effort. Nothing matches the depth, breadth that theses drills offer. If you follow his instructions and practice, you will be a structuring master in not time, business and non-business cases alike. I totally recommend these drills to anyone who wants to learn how to structure and to break this framework curse that alot of us fear when we start this journey.

I greatly valued the lifelike problems and interactive design of the drills, which provide you with the options to listen to the interviewer or read the prompts directly. I have not come across more authentic case problems and thoughful discussions.

I had the pleasure of engaging Florian earlier this year.

My situation: I am an experienced hire with 8 years of experience. I had no experience with case interviews when I was contacted last minute to prepare for EM-level interviews.

The process: Florian was instrumental in bridging this gap for me quickly. He interviewed and guided me through multiple cases and all PEI situations, and created preparation plan with homework assignments and closely monitored my development.

The outcome: His advice and structured approach not only made me offer-ready but also prepared me for the job. He helped me get the job and transition into the new role.

I am forever grateful for this support!

I used the voucher from The 1%. Before I could get to the practice drills I was pleasantly surprised that the course extends the points from the book with more lessons about the framework creation process. I really appreciated that part with more examples and more personal insights. It works for case frameworks and brainstorming questions alike.

The fact that you can analyze an issue in many different ways or from different perspectives is my key take-away and the funny thing is that this works for case openings but for other parts of the case too. It makes the process of thinking through cases much less rigid - not if A then B but if A, I could look at it from 3 angles. It gives you options and you automatically think wider and deeper and I believe that is what counts for interviewers.

I completed most practice questions because I tried to reflect about my answers and compared them with the sample answers as explained in the instructions and I have to say that they are considerably more practical than the cases on Preplounge or some other websites and the sample answers are full of additional information and value. Sometimes there are even two sample answers to demonstrate that you can break down problems differently but still get the same outcome for your case analysis. For every sample answer there is a suggestion how to drive the analysis further. I also appreciated the inclusion of this probing component.

After shopping around for a bit I think this is the best course for case frameworks because it has a clear-cut method and includes so much additional content for self-training.

Good guide at an affordable price. The big plus is the Excel file for the eco system game. The red rock sample tests are not 100% like the real ones layout-wise but with similar questions and difficulty.

I worked hard for my offers and the investment in the course paid off.

It has been a massive mindset shift and I became a big fan of the hands-on approaches taught in the sections. They do an excellent job of converting difficult problems for frameworks, charts and math into simple manageable tasks. This had 4 big impacts on my performance:

1 - I can create more exhaustive and targeted case frameworks in the same time or slightly less time than before
2 - I only need 20 seconds to analyze a chart thoroughly
3 - I have a more structured approach to math problems and calculate faster. I still have to work on getting the formulas right sometimes
4 - I feel more confident in the process

Coming from a nontraditional background I was frustrated with the confusing information on McKinsey interviews. Even McKinsey fails to explain how their interviews work - it is all very vague stuff like "we want to see your authentic self". What does that even mean?

I found help with this academy with tremendous content about the two parts of the interview with simulations and detailed feedback / explanations. Every aspect is broken down clearly and my doubts were indeed erased. Because of this a great amount of insights and tactical advice I can't recommend the content enough.

I would appreciate it if more practice were included.
