    Hey all,

    I have my first ever case interview this Friday. It's not a very big firm or one of my favourites at all, but I want to give it a go because it will give me practice for later. I am completely unprepared - I was planning to start case practice work this week, because I know most consultancies do first interviews mid-late November, but this took me by surprise a little bit. I didn't even have to take tests for this organisation so the interview was a bit of a surprise.

    If anyone could direct me to some good resources (I'm willing to pay for the best ones) I'd be really grateful. I've already got Case in Point which I will go through this weekend.

    Victor Cheng is your man. http://www.caseinterview.com/

    If you're wanting a book, his Case Interview Secrets is great. Try and get someone to practice with you, and especially lookup using a MECE approach towards problems.

    Thanks for your help! I already receive his regular e-mails - is it worth paying for extras?

    Look up some university casebooks (try the big US business schools); they usually have both cases along with the answers. Go through and practice them once you've at least watched Cheng's free talk (the one to HBS I think).

    Practice really can't be overemphasised for cases, preferably with another person, but even on your own will be hugely helpful.
