Be among the first candidates to prepare and maximize your chances to pass the McKinsey Digital Assessment!

Getting into McKinsey is tough. In fact, according to Forbes, McKinsey is the toughest firm to get into. A staggering 99% of consulting applicants fail in the recruiting process. And now, the Firm has developed another challenge for aspiring consultants. McKinsey is currently rolling out a new gamified, digital assessment to replace the older Problem Solving Test. We have discussed this tool in some detail here.

McKinsey itself keeps any information that could prime applicants out of the public. Candidates receive very little information about the test in their invitations. In fact, the Firm’s advice is not to prepare at all. Test takers we have spoken to told us that they had no idea how to prepare or how well they fared with their approach and solutions.

In the context of McKinsey applications, you do not want to let anything be decided by chance. With the introduction of this new test, initial scores and the threshold needed to move on to the case interviews will be low. Over time, as with any assessment, we expect score inflation as more and more candidates learn about the assessment and prepare accordingly.

Let’s turn the odds in your favor! The McKinsey Digital Assessment Guide by is designed to help you prepare and ace the test at this early stage. Our goal is to give you an edge over other applicants. Hence, we dug into the mechanics of the test and pulled our sources. By following the research-backed recommendations and exercises in this guide, you will feel more confident when taking the test and significantly increase your performance.

In detail, the 37-page guide covers

  • The context of the Digital Assessment
  • The type of tasks and scenarios you can expect in great detail
  • How you should prepare for the core skills that are being assessed including research-backed approaches, actionable exercises, and links to further free-of-charge-resources to train your skills
  • How you should take the test to ensure high scores on the big day
  • The guide is constantly updated with feedback from test-takers. The current version is v1.6

The best part? Currently, we are selling the guide at 25% off for early customers.

    I got in touch with the team before my assessment game two weeks ago and they sent me a draft version immediately. i studied with the guide 2 days before the assessment and set everything up before i took the test from home. apparently i passed it because i received the invitation to the interviews last week. i am happy i found this page and would recommend you guys to check out the guide, it was already very comprehensive in the draft version and made a big difference for me as to what to expect and how to prepare

  2. Brian

    Super helpful and out-of-the-box.

  3. Sanur

    I was surprised to find a guide on the assessment online since to my understanding the digital game is quite new. I am happy with the purchase. The content is just as advertised and you can take a lot of learnings from the last two sections (the main part about the preparation, exercises and test taking strategies).

    I was on the wait list for the product to be finished and finally got it yesterday. The guide is really helpful and often makes the connection of how the skills needed for the digital test are very much similar to the ones for the case interviews. So I would say it actually benefits me also for the case interview preparation. I had some issues w delivery, but it got resolved quickly.

  5. David

    Nice one. I am glad to have found this guide since I could not find much information on the web. I especially like the part discussing the different approaches to prepare. Some of it is very creative. I will definitely make use of it in the coming days.

  6. Mira M.

    I used an early version of this guide and passed the digital assessment. It’s a bit experimental but for that price definitely worth it. I think the main benefit is to learn about the cognitive abilities the test focuses on and how I could improve them. The exercises are very actionable and practical. Some of the information is also applicable to the case interviews.

  7. Z.

    A good starting point. I know now what to expect and how to prepare. You have to put in the work to benefit from the exercises.

  8. Joao

    This guide is more than a primer and contains a lot of information which I found useful in the greater context of my application. It is hard to say whether or not I passed the digitized test because of it but it definitely made me feel more comfortable in the process.

  9. A.G.

    The content is excellent and very helpful. I had some open questions which were promptly answered via email.

  10. NN

    The information is good and some tips to prepare are smart. Although it takes time to prepare everything for the test, so I would recommend downloading the guide before you get the invitation to the digital assessment to have a little more lead time. The part about the test taking is useful, even on short notice.

  11. Niccolo

    Good material but you need time to learn and implement.

  12. Carol

    Bought the document 5 days before the deadline of the digitized assessment and it really helped me to collect my thoughts and tailor a prep strategy.

  13. Eugene

    I paid, and I couldn’t find a download portal. It’s not in my email. I could find the guide. Could anyone tell me where to find it?

  19. Pierre

    The book is good. I bought it 2 days ago and received an updated version this morning so the customer service is really good. There are not so many materials to prepare so I am glad I found it. Overall I am happy with it.

  20. Toby

    I have to say the booklet is excellent and I recommend it to everyone who is preparing for the Imbellus test. For me the most useful parts are the explanations of the scenarios and types of games and the preparation advice since it helps you to practice and understand the assessment.
