I've done a decent amount of reading up on case interviews (case in point, victor cheng videos, consulting clubs at my uni) but still don't know where to go from where I'm at -- when I practice cases from case books I frequently struggle to find the correct "path" to go down that leads me to the solution outlined by the case book. I've heard people say some case interviews can be open-ended, while others can have a more concrete "path" that leads to a specific answer. Is it common for real case interviews to have only one specific path that the interviewee must go down to correctly solve the case? If so, how did you prepare yourself to the point where you felt confident that you'd be able to see the path the interviewer wanted you to follow to find the solution?
