Anyone in Rx/turnaround consulting or whose previously gone through the interview process-

What are the best resources in learning the necessary modelling? Specifically 3-statement modelling for Rx situations plus building a robust 13 week cash flow model.

Currently doing WSP Restructuring modelling training and will read "Reverse the slide" where I found a template for the 13 week model referenced in the book.

Are there any other resources out there to utilize?

Not sure which level you are interviewing for, but when I interviewed at AlixPartners (for an EM-level position), I had only 1 case, but it was not your usual 45 minute 1 on1 case. They walked in and dropped a thick stack of paper on the table with a thud and said I had an hour or 2 (can't remeber the time) to go through the case, propose a solution, do the math and sketch out the slides. The slides did not have to be perfect by any stretch, basic, but communicate the answers.
They walked back in at the assigned time and I then presented to 2 fairly senior people.

Haha that sounds like an interesting interview experience - thanks for sharing.

This is for an associate level position at a boutique. Take home case which I believe hits on the topics in OP.

Do you mind if I PM you?

Found this link on an old thread: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&so...
It's the excel model that goes along with Reversing the Slide, the book you mentioned, and has a 13 week cash flow model with a bunch of supporting schedules for AR, AP, payroll, etc. Everything is hardcoded but I have a copy with the formulas if you need.
