Simply excellent! 21 juillet 2012
Par njm83 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
You want a job in consulting? This book is a MUST HAVE! David Ohrvall is indubitably THE black-belt
of case interview preparation and this book is the preparation bible of any serious candidates. While
preparing for my interview, I ordered a half-dozen books all pertaining to case interview preparation,
and Crack The Case System is by far the very best. My only regret is not to have discovered this book
before: it's a real gold mine! Through a very exhaustive approach, it guided me through the secrets and
insider's tips to navigate efficiently amongst the expectations and dangers of case interviews.

What I liked the most about it is its modularity: whether you have 6 months or just 2 weeks to prepare,
beginner or experienced, Crack The Case will best suit your needs. In less than 3 weeks, this book gave
me the best possible preparation for my interview with McKinsey for the following four reasons: (1) It
guided me through both case questions and behavioural questions (too often neglected by candidates);
(2) It provided me with amazing frameworks that are easy to comprehend and apply broadly; (3) It
helped me to efficiently use graphs and visual synthesis (very important!) and how to be optimize my
verbal and non-verbal communications; (4) How to open and close cases like a consultant. And finally,
what's totally unique about this book is the dozens of free videos that come with each chapter and each
case spanning over multiple sectors and focuses.

In summary, the value proposition of this book is GREAT. It proved to be my best return-on-investment.
You want to be hired as a consultant: get this book!

Best book for Case Practice 28 décembre 2011
Par jnikhil - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have been using this book for last few months, and so far it has exceeded my expectations. I have read few other management consulting case books, and so far, really impressed by Crack The Case System.
For each problem or situation, this book break downs the problem by offering an unique formula. There are several techniques, such as, CLASSIC, IMPACT, SPEAK, FRAME, that can not only help to crack the case but also crack the interview. Behavioral is a very important part of the case, and using several techniques I was greatly benefited by the approach defined in the case.

The practice cases are unique because:
1) They cover wide variety of cases, and offer distinct overview of several industries.
2) Cases cover different regions, and help to improve understanding of other geographies.
3) It is possible to do cases alone (via innovative video recording), or with a buddy. MBACASE.COm allows to join the website, and find appropriate partner very easily.

Good paired with "Case in Point" 21 octobre 2013
Par bree1241 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Crack the Case is the go-to book for consulting candidates and those preparing for an interview.

- Consulting and case interviews require both a breadth and depth of business knowledge. This book is excellent at teaching you 13 different categories of case questions like (Growth strategies, pricing strategies, competitor attacks, entering a new business, entering a new geography, mergers & acquisitions and many more)
- The book shows you the ideal way to walk through each type of case question in a very detailed manner
- The book tells you what to expect in these interviews
- The book helps you understand soft interviewing skills like explaining "why you're interested in consulting, tell us about a time you've failed, tell us about a time you've succeeded etc".

- My biggest con for this book is that its practice cases really aren't useful. The book gives you so much knowledge about how to crack different cases, however their practice cases suck. The cases are difficult to practice on your own, and are complicated to practice with a partner. Moreover, the solutions to the cases are brief and leave much to be desired.

For that reason, I would recommend buying this book along with Case in Point by Marc Consentino. Case in Point is almost the opposite of Crack the Case. CIP has really great practice cases and in depth solutions of A+ case answers. However its case frameworks and business knowledge is really shallow and lacking.

Good luck in your interviews!

Comprehensive Review 23 septembre 2013
Par KS13 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've been prepping for case interviews using a number of books and methods and I recommend the Crack the Case book and method without reservation.

The crack the case method has three unique attributes that are worth knowing about.

First, the method breaks down the case interview into component parts and provides specific guidance on how to improve in each area. The case interview has a number of components and although there are a lot of books out there that promise to prep you be providing frameworks for solving cases, this book is the only one I've found that walks through each of the component parts of the interview. It covers frameworks, but it also cover the mid-case structures and the case summation, both of which, from what I have gleaned so far, are just as important as the initial structure.

Second, the book has a ton of cases that are interactive, with web links. I've found that to be quite useful because the interviews themselves are oral; you don't have the luxury of reading the case intro material again to see if you've missed something. Its great to practice by seeing and hearing a mock interviewer throw the case and the case questions at you. In addition, there are web links to typical and good case starts for the cases in the book. For a learner like me, who likes to see how a typical case intro should work, the web clips have been quite valuable.

Third, this book teaches an approach to cases that is intuitive; as I've worked through the book, I've developed a system of thinking that has been very helpful to me when approaching a new case. I've heard from others that I need to avoid the trap of memorizing frameworks and then simply repeating what I've memorized at an interview. I've found that this book, because it emphasizes how to think, instead of how to apply a canned framework, has really improved my ability to take on a new case.

I would recommend this to anyone who is prepping for interviews.

Great Resource for Case Prep! 7 janvier 2014
Par Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In preparation for case interviews, I read 4 of the major case interview prep books (Ohrvall, Cheng, Darling, Cosentino). While all of them have been beneficial, David’s book really stood out to me for a variety of reasons.

First, David’s book is incredibly thorough. At 536 pages, it is certainly the largest case prep book I have seen and probably the largest on the market. The book touches on everything. Frameworks, behavioral questions, types of cases, tips for the actual case-day, and a wide variety of sample cases, just to name a few. In addition to that, you have access to over 100 videos on his website that support the cases in the book. The resource is truly comprehensive and very helpful in the preparation process.

Second, I really benefitted from the sample dialogue/answers David provides in his book and in the videos. It is one thing for someone to tell you to do something a certain way, but it is different for them to provide concrete examples for how to do it. For instance, I enjoyed reading the comparison of the mediocre candidate and the excellent candidate in chapter 2, section 4 because I know I was a lot like the mediocre candidate and thought I was doing pretty well. To see what a truly “excellent” candidate would say, think about, etc. as they walk through a case is always very helpful.

Third, while this book certainly gives structured frameworks for how to attack different case problems, I always got the sense that what David was trying to communicate in his book was that each case will be a little different so you have to be creative and flexible in attacking each problem. Other books feel a bit more rigid, but David provides a lot of tools to help you think creatively about how to approach different problems, or even similar problems, but from different angles. I think this is important because if you only know how to approach/solve a certain number of case questions, you will get really flustered if given something else in the interview. David’s book teaches you categories to think through, but not a rigid set of structures that could be limiting if you received a unique type of problem.

Fourth, I found Chapter 5, Section 13 very helpful because David looks at a large variety of the types of cases you may receive (growth strategy, profit, exit a business, etc.) and writes out a two page roadmap using his FRAME outline for how he would attack a problem like this. Again, it doesn’t feel so rigid that you feel constrained, but it does give helpful guidance to know how to attack these types of problems. After I do a practice case given by a friend, I will often refer back to this section see how David might have dug into a similar problem to determine areas I could improve.

Finally, though I am not very good at doing this, I think David’s advice about finding 2nd level insights and doing mid-case structures is really important. I know I sometimes get bogged down in details during cases or get going too fast and skip over important information. David’s advice about note-taking, creating graphs/charts/tables, and continuing to block & break data is key for doing well in the analysis portion of the case.

Overall, I have benefitted tremendously from David’s book and I highly recommend it to others who are preparing for cases!
