Corporate Strategy - Case Interviews

Hi all,

I've got some CS interviews coming up with a few different companies, and was curious about the case interviews. What should I expect: MBB-esque cases, or something a little more on the lax side?

Additionally, the interviews will be via phone. Can/should I:
-use a calculator
-have notes/frameworks ready to reference

I have two weeks to cram, any advice would be helpful!!
