The course walks you through each step of creating case interview frameworks in a very structured way. I learned what to do and how to tackle a case from the very beginning, like what the role of the framework is and how to make sure I develop a structure that is broad and deep enough to understand the problem of a client for the analysis that follows.

The practice is great too. I have been working on the sample cases every day now and it made a decisive difference in how I think about case problems and real world problems too. Until now my frameworks were always going into all different kinds of directions without having a common logic that would tie the ideas or buckets together. I am not able to write down all the things I learned but there are many. It's actually relatively easy if you get the hang of it.

This bundle was a huge development booster for me. I've done a lot of case prep and even worked with a few case coaches before but the structured courses and the practice resources are second to none. You need to invest effort to practice but I think this package is all you need to become an proficient case solver.

Phenomenal case coach who drills very deep into your strengths and issues. Florians feedback is very precise and always includes clear instructions and homework. I have seen significantly better case results and confidence since our first case.

The structuring course itself is concise yet explains really well how to approach frameworks and case problems in general. It is broken into several sections with a good flow that starts with why frameworks are needed for a good start into the case and why they are used to assess you. There are different framework and brainstorming sections with simple rules and steps to follow that help with breaking down every problem. A lot of emphasis is on creating a replicable approach that should work in every situation or for any problem. Even if you already know a lot, you can still find ideas to improve your case structuring and brainstorming skills. Still, I wish I had found this earlier as it made me change my approach quite a bit.

It also comes with many case prompts and brainstorming questions that are broken down with several sample solutions. I think the practice really drives the theory home. The questions are fun to think about and very diverse from different industries and problems. There are often several detailed sample answer per question that are equally effective at dissecting the problem. I also like the feature that you can choose between reading the case prompts and listen to an audio recording as this makes the experience more realistic.

The support is also excellent. The course encourages you to share your solutions for feedback. I had one clarification question and received a personal reply within the hour.

If you have done cases before you know how annoying math problems can be. Often they caught me completely off guard and then I lost my rhythm for the rest of the case. After going through the whole course and many practice questions it is still annoying but at least I have a clear plan now that I can fall back on plus my calculation speed has significantly improved. Overall, I feel much more comfortable now.

Offers concrete tips for taking the Casey. The goal of the guide is to prepare you for the different questions and tasks and improve your skills and it does a good job in this regard. If you already prepare for cases, all the skills overlap so you could likely also do without it but it helps to work through the practice tests with the time pressure and everything.

The 1% Case Method works! 🙂 After a longer journey I can finally say that my effort and investment paid off but I owe Florian a lot of graditude for his teaching and continuous support. I don't have the usual candidate profile and I could see that he was really interested in my progress and success from the first call on. We did many things besides going through case problems that helped me get a grip on business sense and judgement. After every session he always provided me with new tasks and homework practice to go through on my own but I was always able to discuss my struggles and questions with him. Thank you and I am looking forward to what is coming next.

After reading his book I approached Florian with a very specific case question and he proposed to practice it in a real interview situation. He created a longer case around my question and we did the interview earlier today. The value of the session is hard to overstate. The case was fun and tricky, the feedback was extremely detailed and helpful. I have booked case coaching before with another coach and we did not even touch the surface of what we discussed in today's session. Florian also provided me with tons of other stuff after the session (a summary of this method, a case cheatsheet, very detailed score card, sample solutions down to small things such as the right sentences to say at certain moments, my custom preparation plan with exercises). He also managed to remove my doubts about case studies by a large degree.

Can't really go wrong with a cheat sheet like that. One could probably create one themselves but it would take a lot of time and digging.

I like the instructions at the start that guide you on how and when to use the information provided about the various industries. The combination of the knowledge and the instructions makes it valuable.

The final product I received was top-notch.

- I received a fully revamped CV with a new yet classic design, which makes it much easier to read and directs attention to the relevant sections.
- The content was streamlined with a greater focus on my personal impact in each role and was structured differently with new segments.
- I received instructions on how to add future positions to my CV.

Florian explained in detail what he changed and why which I truly appreciate. In our email exchange he also answered other questions about my application period and the current consulting market. Great experience overall.

I bought this last spring for a lateral entry because a friend recommended it. I studied for the PSG old version but my hiring process stopped until now and I never got to take the test. I was contacted last week and the process is going ahead again. I received an updated version of the guide and I have worked through it completely which has helped me a lot. It is really good and helpful materials.

Not worth the money, I took the SOVA today and it was SUBSTANTIALLY more difficult than what this guide had prepared me for. Numerical section of the guide is particularly dissimilar to the SOVA, with no graph, chart or table questions included in the guide.

Indispensable for independent study! It is a really nice course and working through the exercises is kinda fun. Some parts reminded me of the GMAT others are either more personality focused or business centric.
