Data Dump Case Interview

Hi,

I have an upcoming interview for a strategy consulting role where one of the case interviews will be a data dump style interview, where they give 10 slides and give you 10 minutes to review them and answer three questions. In the last recruiting cycle, I struggled with this type of case a lot. I found it too time consuming and struggled to answer all 3 questions. Also, I am decent at market sizing when I can think of a structure and assumptions myself, but I struggle when I have to use a bunch of data available to then think of a structure and identify the relevant data to size the market. Does anyone have any tips for how I can approach these types of interviews? Are there any good resources online that have this data-dump style of interview? Would greatly appreciate any advice :)
