* Nutshell summary: How to become a case ninja in 7 days? I have a few resources - but what do I read, and in which order? Reading alone won't make me a case ninja. After reading the resources - what do I do? *
I have just found WSO and I want to seek your guidance in preparing for my interview with McKinsey next week (Thursday).
Coming from a non-target, I was not expecting to get this far (especially with the way my PST went..) but I was successful in getting a call for an interview for the BA position.
Now I want to make the most of this opportunity and bag this offer.
I just started reading Victor Cheng's book (halfway through). I have got access to some other resources:
Management Consulted bibles
Found a few MBA casebooks (Wharton, Kelloggs, Stanford, Harvard)
I am at a very basic level atm. What can I do in the next 7 days to get to a decent level that will allow me to progress to the next round?
I feel I can get a understanding (familiarity) of the different frameworks.. but how do I demonstrate competence in the interview?
I am also concerned that I will 'know' the frameworks but I won't be able to effectively apply them in the interview (knowing vs doing) or will not be able to recognise all the drivers in the case which would then affect my structure/analysis of the case.
Is there a resource that identifies the different drivers? (I know this comes with practice, but in 1 week I can realistically only do so much...)
Thank you very much for taking the time out to read and reply.
