Question: First of all, let me thank you for the LOMS programme. I believe it has advanced my case cracking skills significantly. May I also thank you for the continuous tips that I receive in the form of an email newsletter. Those are of great help as well, especially the ones about “how not to feel nervous [...]

Email: Greetings from Western Europe. Thank you very much for all the material.  I have found it extremely useful and much more insightful than the books recommended by MBB in Sweden. I am writing to share a method I have been using for case interview preparation. My context for learning is that it has been entirely independent, as [...]

Question: I am a new visitor at your blog and I find the feedback you provide in specific questions extremely helpful. One issue that I would like your opinion on is to what extent humor can be a plus in an interview and where you would put the limit. I read in various sources that [...]

Reader Comment: I am writing just to thank you for all the materials and work you have prepared and provided! How I got interested in the first place? Well, I really want to work in consulting, because I love solving problems, and as far as I understand, consultants are smart, intelligent and at the same [...]

What follows is a field report from a reader who just got a McKinsey offer, and my commentary on the perfect hypothesis opening statement.

Question: I have been following your blog at CaseInterview.com and using your video for my case interview practice. You mentioned in a couple of posts that better consultants are those who are hyper-analytical/linear thinkers. Creative/lateral thinkers may make the person to communicate in a non-client-friendly way — hard to follow. I did exactly this in one management [...]

Question: I am a big fan of your materials (LOMS® and HSMC are both very helpful). Wanted to ask you a quick question about concluding cases. I think the materials do a great job of covering HOW to close a case. However, what I am struggling with is knowing exactly WHEN to conclude. As I begin to wrap [...]

Question: Thank you for creating the Case Interview Secrets videos and Look Over My Shoulder® program. It is the most practical and intuitive resource on the market, in my opinion. My question is related to note-taking during the interview. What I am struggling with is keeping up with the interviewer, and still trying to note down key facts. In [...]

One of the nuanced skills that I’m noticing some people having difficulty with is the ability to identify the “key drivers” behind a particular business trend. Mastering this skill is not only important in a case interview but is arguably far more important after the case interview — when you are doing real client work. This skill [...]

Question: I have been following your email newsletters and have read them all carefully since I joined your club.  I thank you again for all your effort in making the videos and in having lots of good information available to us. After going through your training videos and framework guide, I recently started practicing case interviews by [...]
