The case interview preparation package is very well crafted. It offers a deep dive into the nuances of the case interview parts and breaks them down into comprehensible steps. The drills closely mirror real scenarios and include a self-evaluation mechanism to help improve your approach. They feature a feedback loop helping you become better and understand why certain solutions work. This package is dense but a must have for anyone serious about nailing their case interviews.

The missing puzzle piece for me. It's easy to find cases for frameworks and math but I found that when it comes to charts in consulting club case books and paid platforms like preplounge or rocketblocks they are unrealistic and too simplistic.

Great interviewer and coach.

We had our first introduction call and I felt that he fully understood my background and aspirations. I booked a session and was not disappointed:

I was somewhat at an intermediate stage with my casing with little time left before my first round and I was not sure if a coach can add value. I was fine with math but struggled with structuring. He used a case in an industry that I requested and immediately identified what I needed to change to become 'distinctive' in the interviewers eyes. In the feedback he guided me through the case and told me what I needed to do or where I had to change my approach. He went over a few big levers I needed to implement and many micro habits as he calls it and showed me how these changes would impact the score sheet. We ended the session by discussing practice tips and drills to work on these areas.

Passed the first round and will book one or two more before my final round.

Florian analyses your case skills in-depth in the first session and shows you how to improve in the different dimensions to meet the standards set out by the top consulting firms. The feedback is very organised into different skill dimensions and case elements and extremely detailed. I really liked his hands-on approach and down to earth coaching style. I constantly had the feeling he was working with me throughout the whole process even outside of sessions when he answered all my questions. He gave me practical guidance on negotiating my entry.

After my McKinseys interview today I received the feedback that my case structuring was "outstanding" and I attribute much of this success to this course. When I started cases, frameworks confused me. I struggled with understanding what to include, what to leave out, and how in-depth my analysis should be. Going through this course I had a breakthrough as the process was broken down in simple steps and terms. For the first time I understood what role the framework serves and how to narrow or widen my analytical lense based on the case objective. It all made sense. Following this insight, I diligently practiced with the exercises provided, leading to the positive feedback I received today.

Offers a clear and detailed analysis of the PSG. It presents a good overview of each game but also pushes you to actively think about each game's hurdles. Working with the Excel solver has helped me a great deal.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is preparing for consulting interviews. It's a well designed prep suite that covers not only the theory for each element of the case and variations but also all essential practice materials for creating MECE issue trees, analyzing charts from interviewers and cracking case math problems. Florian's offer to help with questions and case problems at all times adds significant value to the overall experience.

It gave me confidence because it lays out a plan. It is still a challenge but I don't think its possible to pass if you don't know how to tackle the stages in the short time you got without a Excel model to organize your thoughts and do the computations and checks for you. Both parts of my game were as expected. Thanks for the help.

I was about to apply for a MCKinsey internship when I found this course. I think it is very well made and provides a full coverage of the assessment. The Excel solver tool was easy to work with and does the trick. I would buy it again.

First session in the books and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

1. Florian spent time and effort to introduce me to his approach. In total we spent close to 90 minute on the case and feedback.
2. The case and the materials he shared were very high quality and the insights I gained were valuable for each part of the case. He focuses on the outcomes and the process how you get there and he shared many tips and tricks to improve structuring, become faster in math etc etc
3. The process is well organized. 15 minutes after the session ended he sent several pages of feeedback in a color-coded Excel document, my preparation plan and access to the practice materials.

As an experienced professional, I commend his approach to coaching.

It comprises numerous useful mini-lessons that guide you on approaching the various math problems in case interviews. Each topic is thoroughly covered and explained. The practice drills begin with fundamental concepts, each building upon the other, leading up to more complex case examples. Quick support too!

I bought the training with Florian because he had good reviews on all platforms I looked at and I can attest now that he prepared me very well for my interviews. On top of his expertise in case interviews and drilling you to the next level, he gave me even more courage and self-confidence. In every session he found new topics and questions to challenge me and always had very helpful tips, for instance, to polish your strengths and hide weaknesses. I felt very well prepared and was therefore able to go into several interviews a little more relaxed, which resulted in more than one offer which is more than what I expected. I can recommend his training to anyone who really wants to take their consulting interviews seriously. He also had great tips on how to prepare for the role after the offer.

Impressive depth of constructive feedback! Just one session gave me a clear vision for tackling cases and moving forward with my work. Florian's approach was far from generic, he presented a complex, industry-tailored scenario, which was exactly what I needed. I wholeheartedly recommend this coaching to others. Florian is a kind-hearted, honest person and also has a good sense of humour.

The package helped me pass the games. The strategy from the guidebook and videos for the eco-system game is very simple and the Excel solver is a great support for organizing your food chain and checking if it works out. The practice tests on the Red Rock sections are like the real questions. It is all about different kinds of growth rates. I thought it to be much harder.
