110 reviews for BCG Online Case Guide (+ Casey Practice Tests)

  1. Anastasia

    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.

  2. G.D.

    if you are serious about your BCG application this guide is a no brainer. It lays out everything you need to do in a simple manner. I did very well on the assessment.

    I am giving 4/5 because a bit more practice would be great.

  3. Arianna

    Great advice and practice for the BCG chatbot. It lays out the right preparation and test strategies clearly. The visual design of the practice tests is a bit different but the flow and questions were exactly like in the real chatbot test. Difficult but great learning opportunities.

  4. kai

    The guide and practice test pack was a big helper for my preparation. They are really geared toward the chatbot case and provide great insights and practice.
    I liked how it is structured: You get to know about the test in detail, then the question types are covered, and tricks/step by step instructions to work with each, for some even with scripted sample answers and structured. In the practice part there are preparation plans for different timescales broken down into daily tasks, a discussion and learnings about the different skills that are evaluated and how you can improve them and demonstrate it in the interview online and offline, plus the 5 practice tests from the website.
    I think there is a lot of value in this prep package for BCG candidates. I did not use/read the parts about other assessments so I cannot comment on those.

  5. Meltem Y

    I prepared for the BCG online test with this guide and want to recommend it. I was a novice in cases and learned about the different questions and tricks to approach it. I noticed that some of the questions I recieved in my test were very like the sample tests. It’s a very good investment.

  6. Sunil

    The content is very valuable. It is detailed to help out candidates best approach the BCG chatbot case and it also includes two practice tests.

  7. Rakesh

    The guide is good, sample tests are really good and the most difficult I have encountered

  8. Anna

    Excellent value for the depth of content and the provided insights. The BCG Guide was a super helpful addition to my case prep and helped me prepare and learn for the specific online case format. The sample tests were more difficult than my actual test so if you struggle with them you should have a better time during the test hopefully. Shopping experience and downloads were flawless

  9. Elisa

    Very well put together materials on the Casey. I could learn many new things and tricks about case interviews that helped me beyond the online case. I would deduct 1 star because I found some of the explanations in the sample tests not entirely clear. The rest was great and the sample tests a very challenging.

    • StrategyCase

      Dear Elisa,
      thank you very much for your kind words!
      I will reach out to understand how we can provide better explanations for the practice tests.
      Florian

  10. ricarda

    great compilation and deep dive for the full BCG chatbot assessment and a must-have for candidates to know what to expect and prepare for. tons of valuable advice but very structured. a quick read.

  11. Fariza

    You get a compendium with a wealth of information about the BCG online assessment and case interviews. A lot of effort and attention to detail has been put into it, so that everything is covered and answered. The table of contents gives a good overview of what is included but when you read the book there is much more you come across.

    There is even other stuff for assessments I did not have but read through it once to learn one thing or another. Clear and easy-to-understand tables and diagrams, well written. Great product.

  12. C

    I used it over 2 weeks of my preparation and I am very satisfied with the book. It helped me identify my main weakness which was math and I focused a lot on it. The recommended strategies for preparing and taking the test were super helpful and all steps of the casey are explained in detail.

    My result was positive – thank you very much!

  13. Firas

    A top product at a reasonable price, easy download

  14. abhishek

    Finally, someone has managed to teach how to enable students to self-study for case interviews. The principles and approach are ingenious. I found the sample tests more difficult than the real casey I received. 4 stars just because the explanations on the sample answers could be more detailed.

  15. Erol

    very helpful

  16. James

    I’ve just completed the Casey assessment and I can say that this guide offers unparalleled value for money and is a must-buy for anyone looking to maximise his/her chances in the BCG Online Case. The guide is amazing for several reasons:

    1. The 2 sample tests are the most realistic I’ve found online. Florian just has a knack for creating MBB-level content, and the level of the practice cases really pushes this guide above the other comparable products (which are priced higher too)!

    2. The guide teaches excellent techniques for approaching each type of question that might come as part of the assessment. It really helps with managing nerves before and during the assessment itself.

    3. The guide was very well written and the content easy to digest. The language was easy to understand, and the overall content was very structured, making it an easy-read despite it being a quite content-rich guide.

  17. amit

    I could download the book and I was able to get started right away after purchase! It’s been a while since I took the test and did the interviews but I can say that it had a part in my success

  18. Anastasiya

    I really liked the book. It compactly summarizes the essential content that you need to know for the online case. It took away my fear and gave me the necessary clarity on what to expect. The book is also written in a very understandable way, so I can only recommend it. Thank you

  19. MARIUS

    I bought this book towards the end of my BCG interview prep, I started with some other guide.
    I liked this book more in the end. It is more fluid to read and you can jump back and forth between topics and question types. Combined with sample tests, I was very well prepared and also passed. A definite buy recommendation – I just ordered the Mckinsey game guide……

  20. Aurel V

    The content is presented well so that I could imagine every situation and challenge of the test beforehand and felt right at home while taking the test. Very, very detailed and combines theory with practice and self-evaluation. Couldnt have asked for more…

  21. Silvana

    I want to say that I was a complete case beginner before reading this book. I had never really dealt with non-traditional interviews but I was headhunted by BCG and decided to try it out so I bought this guide. I would not have thought that there are so many things to pay attention to and that the margin of error that is allowed is very narrow. The book helped me a lot, not just for the online test but also to structure my entire case prep from the ground up. I also was in contact with the author and he helped me create my own practice and connected me to other people and resources. Great experience and I can absolutely recommend the book.

  22. emilio

    I’ve been preparing for mbb interviews for a while, but to understand more about this online case I needed more of a deep dive. Because of the positive reviews I decided to buy this one and I have to say I am very happy with it. The book starts at the very beginning and then goes piece by piece further into the test and each question type. It is very well structured and the explanations are on point. The book makes clear how you can tackle the test with a solid plan.

    Certain chapters of the book like the math prepration tips should be read several times to really internalize

    Final rating: very good book, for beginners but also for more experienced case interviewers. Clearly a buy recommendation

  23. Enrique DLO

    The book is very informative and longer than I thought. There are a lot of great tips that I also implemented in my live case practice now. Great refresher on the basics and the more advanced case concepts.

    I wish there was more sample tests but the ones included are very high quality

  24. Ekaterina V

    Easy to read. Provide an excellent overview and is great for working on your case skills. It also does a good job of presenting the context and links between the different skills and question types as well as the links between each question of the test.

  25. Thibaud M

    From my side, a very clear buy recommendation for anyone who wants to understand what the Casey is about and how to tackle it effectively.

  26. ZAINAB

    The book promised from the title a lot of knowledge and comprehensive advice. To begin with, I took the test yesterday and I found the ideas presented excellent and exceptional. The book kept what it promises, it is very comprehensive and conveys a lot of good theoretical knowledge on structuring, math, charts, and communication combined with many practical examples in which you can find yourself again during the actual chatbot case

  27. ahmad

    full of helpful tools and approaches; came to me via referral

  28. lea c

    The practical experience of the author leads to many practical tips and explains the stumbling blocks of virtual and live cases. Entertaining and convincing read and a real practical guide through case interviews…

  29. Wei Han L

    Great book, very helpful for studying for the bcg online case. Detailed yet concise summary of all you need to get through it succesfully (prep plans,different elements of the test,exercises,approaches,test strategies). Absolutely recommended!

  30. Hendrik

    In my opinion, this book is the best for learning for BCG case interviews and the online test. Unlike other resources (I tried 3), the basics are covered very intensively. The chapters guide you through the different steps of your preparation from understanding to skill building to practicing to taking the test. I found that sequence very logical. The chapters are all uniformly structured and easy to digest. The book and the sample tests are designed to pass that test. The only downside for me as a German speaker is that it is an English book. But if you don’t have a problem with that (I could not find a German version or any other German test), you should definitely go for it.

  31. risz

    book is very good and understandable structure. enclosed sample tests are helpful.

  32. vicky

    I had no idea how to learn for this test. Then I came across this book here and it made it extremely easy for me to get started. It is super structured and everything is explained great from the beginning. I’m now done with the test and prepping for the interviews. really cool!

  33. Cristina

    I have improved my general casing approach a lot through this book, not just for the BCG online case. This book was recommended by a YouTuber and I am very satisfied with it and can recommend it.

  34. khalid k

    Very informative book, has everything you need to get better at online and live BCG cases. Witty and understandable descriptions and anecdotes included. Highly recommended!

  35. eugenio

    Great resource for the chatbot case. The different areas of the case are always combined with detailed explanations and examples, so that you gains understanding before practicing and consolidating what you have learned. It’s great that sample cases and solution booklets are included.

  36. nazahat

    this book is a very good support for the bcg online case. it offers a deep dive on each section of the case and a good selection of exercises with which you can get your rusty problem-solving brain back on track. in addition, it explains how to take the test strategically to maximize your scores

  37. Thomas M.

    This textbook is a fantastic introduction to the BCG online case.

    It uses a simple structure to go over detail of the assessment but also includes introductions, extensive explanations, and useful notes to apply during the test-taking. It is a very practically oriented book.

    To mention the best part: The varied exercises and the sample tests. All exercises are provided with solutions and explanations. Excellent!

  38. Marie-Christin

    The book is really quite extensive, but nevertheless the information does not overwhelm you. All details for the chatbot case are explained in an easily understandable and engaging way. I found myself often going through aha moments where I learned about topics I thought I already understood from regular case practice. The book contains many such interesting knowledge nuggets on solving the different questions of a case and I believe it also helps with normal case interviews…

  39. Guillaume L

    I bought the book for a recruitment test with the Boston Consulting Group. The book itself already prepares you well for such a test. It is extensive and you can work through it quickly. The sample tests as an addition are also very useful as you can test what you have learned and how you develop. I ended up buying the math course here as well as I found out that this was my problem area. I can highly recommend both the book and the math course, which is even more detailed.

  40. niels

    The book was just right for me! Great overview of the test format, the question types & strategies to approach them individually and the test as a whole. A lot of practice tips and examples. The questions in my actual virtual case were just like in the book and my results were also pretty close since I passed it apparently :-)))

  41. amanda

    Unfortunately, it has been a long time since my last applications and dealing with case interviews. I tried to break into consulting on an entry level but failed pretty much every interview due to bad prep. Now after 3 years in a corporate job I decided to take another shot at it but I knew that I had to do more preparation work than last time.

    The book has helped me a lot to bring my case interview skills up to date. I initially bought it only for the BCG virtual interview but it pretty much covers everything you need for all case interviews, virtual or in person. It feels very current and up to date. Furthermore, it showed me what I have to pay attention to when going through the recruiting process with MBB. It is written very nicely and pleasantly and is easy to read.

  42. Tim

    I bought this book to prepare for the BCG virtual and live interviews.

    The first thing I liked about this book was the format and the whole presentation in the book. It makes the content easy to read and digest.

    Now to the content:

    The book contains starts with introduction about the online case and the chatbot case. After the introduction, the book focuses on skill building introducing each skill and then there are exercises from all areas e.g. chart interpretation, reading comprehension, case math, etc. The exercises are complemented with links to further free practice resources. Everything is well explained and I found it easy to work on the topics and see the progress I made. There is also a section that shows you how to approach the test from a methodical perspective, what tactics to use to track your time, how to move forward when you get stuck, etc.
    The book also comes with two full Casey practice tests, which you can answer in the same time as the real online case. Each practice tests has solutions which are given further back in the pdfs.

    At the end of the book there are also chapters on the pymetrics test and video interviews. I read through them and found the info interesting but they were not directly relevant for my recruiting process.

    After working through the book and its exercises and sample tests I am convinced of the quality of the book and can recommend it.

  43. David

    Nice book, many examples incl. solutions & explanations. I was able to solve all the examples within the given time and got 70-80% correct answers. It was certainly helpful for my BCG preparation.

  44. Paula

    I would recommend this booklet to anyone even before they start their application. The test and each part is well explained and summarised and the authors discuss strategies to score high. However, you should not rely on this information alone, but also start to practice as early as possible with the materials in this booklet, the links provided also the execises mentioned. In the end, I would say the booklet is a great guide, both for the chatbot interview and the real interview actually. Is saved me for the chatbot case and had big part in my approach and success for the live case interviews I believe.

  45. madhav

    This BCG case book exceeded my expectations. It deals intensively with each question type and how to learn the skills and then show them during the case. The practical part helps you practice them often and try again and again until you nail it.

  46. Tq

    Very clear and helpful!
    Great for learning for the Casey. Really helped me and I can recommend it to everyone going through the same challenge

  47. Zhiyuan

    On the whole, a good book with comprehensive tasks and extensive opportunities to practice that is very similar to my computer case. However, two links to a few practice resources were broken initially but quickly sent to me by Florian after I mailed to him

    • StrategyCase

      Dear Zhiyuan,

      Thank you for your kind feedback and for pointing out that the links were broken. I have fixed it now with a new version of the guide. All the best with your BCG interviews going forward!

      Cheers,
      Florian

  48. Belinda

    The book helped me a lot and I am glad I discovered it. The tips on how to approach each question type with a game plan, for example, make it easier to understand the case and monitor your speed and progress. I am glad to have discovered this trainer also for the primer on consulting math alone. There is a lot of information on how to approach and solve case math problems. I can recommend it to anyone who wants to work on or refresh their casing skills and habits. It has helped my physical casing skills as well.

  49. Vinnie D.S.

    I like the content very much and it is nicely presented. Clear learning points with progress plans, practice tests and questions that come with the sample solutions. Very relevant for the BCG Online Case and I can recommend it relating to my own test experience which was like the sample tests!

  50. A.R.

    This guide was recommended to me by a friend who works at BCG so that sold me. Was not dissappointed and absolutely recommend it to everyone who goes through their process

  51. Karin

    – Mandatory for applicants that go through the Casey
    – Possession of the book is not enough, you also have to practize a lot as recommended in the book and with the sample test (all provided)
    – You should also buy a good calculator
    – a treasure trove of various aspects of consulting interviews in general

  52. yaying

    The right book for preparing for the BCG test. And thanks to the sample tests, you can test yourself very well to see how fit you already are. I can only recommend it. It is definitely a very good supplement to overall case preparation.

  53. scott

    I took the bcg online case two weeks ago and one week later had my mckinsey interviews and for both purposes the book was perfect since both follow a very similar format (interviewer-led) and the questions are in the same style.

    I can definitely recommend this book as I was able to use it for more than just the casey. It covers a lot of general consulting case interview ground.

  54. Simone

    When I applied for internships last year, I failed several online tests because I was not convincing enough I guess because of being to slow. This year I invested the money for test prep, and invested more time and focused not only on interview prep. The result is that I passed the Imbellus games and the BCG online case. Some of the games and the questions in the real tests were really identical. If I may give you a tip: Invest in yourself, because that usually comes up far too short! It will pay off.

  55. giacomo

    I have been reading the book for the last couple days and trying out the accompanying tools and practice. Already the background information and strategy part was very enlightening. It helps that it is very practical and written in a very understandable way.

    The sample tests come as a bonus for me apart from the preparation and tips presented as it allows to implement what one has learned and integrated.

  56. Lakshmi G

    This book broke with my ideas of how to tackle the online case. With the help of a study plan, clear explanations, practice materials Florian illuminates the Casey tool well. It helped my thinking and made me consider new approaches to the test and the different question types. What I particularly like is that he does not beat around the bush but provides value with every chapter.

    What I also liked was that his writing style is easy to digest. Very pleasant. Therefore 5 stars.

    Conclusion: This book is very suitable for learning how to approach and manage the BCG online case and its practical application with sample tests.

  57. uk

    A prep book that is able to combine the online case preparation with important case interview principles in a somewhat entertaining way. In this way, the book provides the reader with a bridge between the online case and the actual case interview by showing that both are just two sides of the same coin.

    A highly recommended book on the BCG online case with food for thought and many practice opportunities!

  58. Santiago

    I work in the strategy department of a F500 companies working on the switch to MBB. I think this book is perfect for the kind of virtual case that I encountered during my BCG application. There are a lot of examples that you can easily put into practice with the materials and sample tests provided. All in all, a very good book,

  59. Umut J.S.

    Well structured and explained as in the McKinsey Guide that I purchased earlier. Anyone who has completed their studies going for BCG should buy this book. The most important components of the online case are covered and I found the detailed section on preparing and the sample tests for honing ones skills very helpful.

  60. W

    The recommendation I got is fully justified. Ideal if you need to get to grips with the BCG online test. There are two exercise books to go with the guide

  61. emile

    I did roughly 150 practice cases before buying this book.

    This book offers a good basis for “inexperienced” applicants. I worked through the book from front to back and it helped me to focus my preparation more and identify my remaining weak spots and adjust to the BCG online format. Nevertheless, many tips are useful and a real support for applicants with little or intermediate experience with case interviews.

  62. Pranjal G

    Must have for BCG applicants. Explains everything well, provides a clear preparation guidance, test strategies and practice opportunities

  63. jiaqui

    The book is written in a way that I can understand. Especially the sample tests are great for people who just want to practice everything and find their way back into the subject matter! I have been out of school and case practice for several years and I can only recommend this book to refresh and expand my knowledge, especially for such an online case method

  64. Akhil

    In preparation for the BCG case, I got this book to get back into the material of cases and online tests a bit. The sample tests are very comparable to the content of real case. In the book I found the respective explanations super to get back up to speed and to get the right approaches or solutions shown.

  65. Janne

    The book is really great to get insights into the BCG application and the chatbot case. It describes in detail what is important, what questions are used, how to deal with them, and what preparation is effective for different time budgets.

    I think this book is a great helper for anyone studying for their BCG case.

  66. sunanda

    + contains in detail everything important on the BCG test
    + the book also contains two additional sample exams
    + requires no previous knowledge
    + easy-going and pleasant style of writing
    + some tables and illustrations, which are very helpful
    + full of examples
    + well suited for non business people
    + extremely good value for money

  67. Annegret F

    Good book. A practical take on the the BCG online chatbot. It is important to adhere to certain principles and strategies – especially as a non business major – so that the case is successful. Good advice on preparation techniques. I enjoyed reading through it and it helped me tremendously in the session.

  68. Christian

    Very good structure. The book has a handy size and is quick to read while covering every aspect of the casey. If you don’t understand something, you can write an email to the author and you will get a helpful answer and solution. I am satisfied with the book and service. It remains to be seen whether it will help with the BCG case but I believe it will.

  69. Ceyda.

    Clear and stringent, extremely readable reference book for BCG applications. The price is actually quite cheap and more than justified. I am very enthusiastic about this book because it brought me clarity with regard to possible questions early on, explained all the the different assignments and provided practical approaches for all, including a ton of practice materials.

  70. Kathrin D.K.

    I bought the book for a the BCG recruitment case. In itself, the book prepares well for the case:

    – It is comprehensive and you can work through it with a quick pace.
    – I also find the sample tests very useful as an add-on.

    I purchased the guide in combination with the math program and the math problems in the course were much harder. That’s why I was able to solve the tasks in the real case without too many problems.

  71. Cyrille

    I bought the book because, as an engineer with little business background, I wanted to get up to speed for my upcoming BCG assessment. The ideas in the book are very clearly laid out and it has an excellent didactic structure. I can highly recommend it to everyone who is preparing for BCG. Although I could not print my PDF, I don’t think this has any disadvantage with reading comprehension. The explanations are also comprehensible and yet precise the sample tests are engaging – my conclusion: 5 stars.

  72. Fung Lam

    I purchased the booklet to review the casey material. I can recommend it for 4 reaons:

    1. The content was spot on and really well suited to the casey but also bcg interviews in general
    2. It was fun to work with the practice tests that are very similar to my experience
    3. The book is well written and everything is explained well in the respective chapters
    4. I received a free update after I bought it without asking

    Thank you for helping me pass the test

  73. bimpe

    I want to give this 5 stars. It is an indispensable tool for BCG and I used it to pass succesfully. It is easy to read, cheap and there are many valuable tips in it that I did not know about or think about.

  74. Torben Pa.

    Top source when it comes to learning how to ace the BCG case effectively and efficiently. All relevant aspects are included and described in an easy-to-understand way with plenty of examples and additional materials.

  75. Saurabh

    A wonderful book! First class preparation for the chatbot case.
    No matter how well you have learned business concepts or cases at university, this guidance is a must to approach the test.
    The flow of information is great and covers everthing! Formatting of the book, structure is good, the samples are just like in the real case.
    I recommend this book to everyone who is specifically preparing for BCG.

  76. Astrid

    Very helpful and recommendable!

  77. Julia

    I find the book was really helpful… It is well structured, explained in a way that builds up from the beginning and you are guided well through the individual sections. The test simulations show you what to expect and help you to check your own progress. It’s hard to imagine working through all the material online without a book like this. A real supporter for you BCG preparation!

  78. Max

    I bought this book to prepare for the BCG online case and must say that the book gives a good overview of the types of possible questions and the setup. Not only do you get to know the types of questions, but you also understand how the questions are designed and work. It teaches you how to fish, because you know the way to the goal.

    I think this book is absolutely worth working through and the trial exams are very similar to the real case I went through.

  79. david

    This book prepares you optimally for the BCG recruitment case. It covers a lot of ground:

    1. Content on the test, a long section on preparation tips and exercises and test-taking strategies
    2. Other BCG testing formats (that were not relevant for my case)
    3. Sample tests that are very similar to the real case

    I felt very comfortable going into the the case because the authors highlight how you can use your normal case prep also for the online case. The information is very focused on helping you succeed.

  80. estefania

    The book contains many exercises and sample tests. The content is very well explained. It is the perfect preparation for the BCG case!

    Positives:

    – very comprehensive; covers all questions and question types of the test
    – many practice exercises and resources; very similar to the real case
    – more comprehensive and better than tests you find on the internet
    – lots of practical tips
    – info is also relevant for the in-person case interviews
    – low price compared to others

    negatives:

    – could contain more full practice tests

    after going through the imbellus prep book I expected a similar quality prep for bcg and was not disappointed. many great tips and explanations and strategies to tackle the robot case. could go for more to be honest

  83. Jan

    I found the sample tests very good, at least up to par with the real case and therefore also tricky. The content and infos are very detailed and helpful in this guide. In any case, a good investment to prepare and check your current level to see what you need to improve and then also prociding a plan and exercises to help you do that.

  84. Sascha

    I liked the book and tests as a motivation and guide to the online case. Florian writes in a relaxed and likeable way which made this dry subject a little easier to digest and he also took away some of my fears. It also helped me a lot that he thought over every little step for the different sets of questions and explained it all in detail.

  85. phillip

    The book really gives very helpful tips on how to approach each sub-topic on the chatbot case with a structured plan and approach. The strategies described have helped me pass and I also learned some things for the BCG interviews. The general tips have especially helped me to get the rather unimportant questions such as logistical details about the test day answered.

    All in all, this is a good book that you should have read and practiced with before taking the BCG online case.

  86. oliver

    the solution strategies and exercises are a great help in internalising the different types of tasks and the guide also contains a lot of practical additional information about the test and BCG overall. I felt like I performed badly on my test as I was quite nervous while taking it. happy to report that apparently my performance was good enough as I just received positive news from bcg. ๐Ÿ™‚

  87. S.

    I was working with Florian on the McKinsey interviews and received an offer but due to geographical preferences I have also applied at BCG and used his guide to prepare for the chatbot interview. The book is an excellent tutorial for the real test and helped me to approach it with more confidence and skills. If you are thinking about BCG interviews or the online case you can’t go wrong with this well-researched and elaborate guide. S.W.

  88. Pamela

    The book is very helpful, because I didn’t know where or how to start learning and preparing for the test. This is how I approached it:

    – I started with a self-test as recommended by the author to see how the online case looks like and figure out what my main issues are
    – I read through the guide and then used the 2 weeks preparation plan with some minor tweaks for my personal situation
    – I practiced the recommended exercises religiously besides the case prep every day and have to say that it is very synergistic and also benefitted my analysis skills for the live cases. I really tried to implement all tips and tricks directly
    – Every 3rd day I did a mock test to see how I am improving

    I received positive feedback on my result from HR 2 days ago ๐Ÿ™‚

  89. Gustavo

    Excellent guide. I was looking for something that was as close as possible to the BCG test and this guide is super complete, lots of material with very clear strategies and practice material, comes with much more information than I expected, and proposes a preparation time plan of 2 or 4 weeks. It comes with personal support. Highly recommended!

  90. Anika

    Good for theory and practice that contains a lot of genuine information and preparation advice on how to deal with the chatbot, what/how to prepare, what to pay attention to. Happy with the purchase and my outcome

  91. Claus

    I found it a valuable addition to my case training due to excellent content and low price and learned a lot of things. It is a good mix of theory and practice materials. The sample tests are very similar to the real one.

  92. A.

    Without a doubt, the best BCG Online Case prep out there. I already bought the McKinsey guide, so I trusted their training materials and was not disappointed. With the prep I felt very confident, I experienced no surprises during the test and evetually cleared it. I shopped around a bit for this one too to have the direct comparison.

    I left some feedback on the quant questions and the guide was promptly updated and I was sent a new version 2 days later for future reference.

    All in all a great experience and customer service. 5*

  93. Yasmine H.

    Excellent primer and deep dive on the Casey. I bought the book to acquire the basics of the BCG case and was surprised to find the level of depth and detail that is conveyed from start to finish.

    While preparing for cases, I quickly realized that I am often struggling with the basics. These such as chart interpretation or math are explained in this book ingeniously in small steps using examples and with many exercises to go from. From there it expands far beyond and provides you with step by step logic for the complete preparation, the different question types, and the test-taking tricks. You can see the amount of work and case experience that went into the creation by the team.

    I ”only” had to sit the Casey and no Pymetrics or Video Interview but I am sure the material covering these is equally valuable.

  94. Sven

    Useful for the preparation

  95. Joana

    I received the PDFs right after purchase and I really appreciate the format of the book: a theoretical part followed by a guided practical part. All the different interview types and tests are well described and explained. If you want to practice, I recommend the two simulations of a Casey test, which are very similar to the test I got from BCG.

  96. Daniel

    Good resource. Gives a good overview of all tests and provides suitable exercises with solutions.

  97. Shawn

    Truly great product. It is full of great tips and prep advice for the OCSA but also beyond that I could learn a lot for my BCG interviews. I was happy to find practice tests apart from the one provided by BCG. The tests are very similar to the real one but I feel the math questions were a bit harder in my case.

    • StrategyCase

      Dear Shawn, thank you for your kind feedback. We have noted your point on the math difficulty level and are currently adjusting our sample tests to reflect that based on other feedback we have received. All the best, Florian

  98. Barbara

    I prepared on short notice after a referral and a faster than expected invite to the chatbot case. I found this guide very helpful. Great detail with a wide range of topics covered that help you prepare and succeed

    The 2 mock cases were very similar to the one I had during my interview about a company that is selling agricultural vehicles

    Thank you for that wonderful product.

  99. J.Y.

    I would give the guide 4 out of 5 stars since there is some practice in preparation for the Chatbot AI case, which is not directly covered in the guide. The handbook tells you exactly what to expect, discusses strategies to take the test, provides exercises you can do and points to further (all free) practice resources. This is all excellent and very helpful. In fact, I applied the strategies in my assessment and it worked. -1 point here since I would have loved to have a sample test included for practice. I think this is the only thing that could make the guide better (in fairness, this is also not advertised to be included in the guide).

    But I rated it 5/5 because I had some questions and Florian took the time to call me and go over them. I did not expect that level of customer service for this kind of product.

    To sum up, I can definitely recommend the guide and the customer service, especially at this price. Consider adding one or two sample tests in future iterations as we discussed. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • StrategyCase

      Dear J.

      Thank you very much for your message and kindness. We are currently working on adding realistic practice tests in addition to the questions that are already in the guide and it should be available soon.

      Take care!

      Florian

    The booklet gives detailed understanding of what is expected from you for each assessment, how to best train for it and how to tackle each question. I was going through the AI chatbot 2 weeks ago (benelux) and passed. I expected it to be harder.

  101. hei

    The pdf contains everything you need to prepare for the bcg chat case. Unfortunately, it does not relieve you of doing the exercises and preparation to master the skills, but it leads you on the right path. The book guided me in my preparation for the first round, and I passed it last week.

  102. Fabian

    The book is well structured and easy to understand and follow! It helped me fill a few blind spots I was not aware of in my approach and the questions in the chat case. Great as an extra help and I can recommend it. It is priced very fairly for the value you can extract

  103. markus

    A must if you go through the BCG hiring process. The insights I gained benefitted me more than just for the chat interview. Everything is covered, succinct and besides the tips on how to prep, approach and answer questions there is also lot of wisdom to develop a consultant’s mindset that I use now for the cases.

  104. nichola

    Iโ€™ve been using the book for the last week and a half to prep for the chatbot case that is apparently a new recruiting element. I am impressed with the level of detail of information and the insights into BCG and the approach to the different questions. It took away a lot of anxiety for me.

  105. Robert

    Amazing value for money. It helped me structure my preparation, identify my weaknesses, and taught me how to work on them. I found it useful for learning the quantitative methods and the nuanced approaches to the different question types with a decision tree.

  106. Emily

    You address all points well and it seems like a comprehensive prep guide. But do you have any information on the video recording?

    • StrategyCase

      Dear Emily,
      Thanks for reaching out and for the kind words. Regarding the video recording: Are you referring to the video recording of the Online Case or the video interview? We have written about the Online Case here, with some information on the format that includes the video summary. Fundamentally, nothing changes on how to prepare and how to approach each question. As for the video summary, treat it like a typical summary of a case interview question (state your recommendation and then provide some supporting arguments based on your analysis).

      If you are talking about the one-way video interview, which is not related to the Online Case, check out this article here.

  107. Alexandria

    good program that covers all important elements. perfect as a standalone resource to guide and expedite my preparation. you still need to put in the work and work on your weaknesses etc.

  108. c.f.

    good intro to the bcg test, very structured and nice exchange after purchase on some discussion points.

    • StrategyCase

      Likewise! You raised some very interesting facts. ๐Ÿ™‚

  109. steph

    I feel very confident and motivated having read through the pdf once and having drafted my preparation strategy in line with their recommendations and plans. From my current pov the book gives you exact expectations on the test and shows you what and how you can prepare and also how to approach the actual test and be quicker.

  110. Michael S.

    Stellar advice, and prep plans. I would give 5 stars if you guys included a practice test or several more practice questions.
