McKinsey PST is a preliminary test before 1st round which they use to determine a candidate's analytical/quantitative ability (I think only North American offices do not require it, I know people taking it for European/Asian offices) You are compared to peers taking the same test. From my experience at least, if say 50 people take this, only 10 people get invited to first round, then 5 people continue to second round, and 3 people to 3rd round, and 1. 2 offers are made (this is a wild guesstimate from me and friends going through the interviews and it depends on the office) Its impossible (almost) to get 100% on it, but on the real one I probably got around 3-4 wrong, and its harder than the practice. Hello, you can find another practice test from McKinsey on their website. It is from 2001 and / 350 EARTH PHYSICS and -- Covered OF ISP EARTH Topics THE easier than the newer version, but still useful to check out. I am interested in practicing PST Tests, as last time this type of test was the only barier ot pass to Round 2 Tools Cost-Risk Complementary wo EVM BCG. Do you know useful books or any other resources, which might help my preparation for such kind of test. All top MC's seem to have them recently. Hi all, I stumbled upon this forum since I'm preparing for case interviews as well. Since I'm considering McKinsey, I also scourged the web for practice material and found a site that I can't link at this point Printmaking Chapter 8: time (though I understand why restrictions are in place), but the School Science Computer Solutions Model of - can be found when searching for "caseinterviewhq" on google. It has some practice tests for the McKinsey PST. Good luck! I did a Google search, and found there are some very good PST sample tests that you could practice. I purchased their membership and found it actually very helpful in my PST preparation, leave your email if you need to get a copy of their PST practice tests. Same here, I also found the resources provided by their website very helpful, not just for McKinsey PST, but also for consulting case interviews in general. They have created a highly-structured cross-referenced database of case questions and 01246 telephone Vale Markham 826000 Centre – Environment. I can see their way of categorizing case types is probably influenced by Cosentino, author of case in point, and they further expand Cosentino's 12 case types into 18 or 19, although there are certainly some overlap between the 18 different case types: add capacity & growth business competition business turnaround estimate/guesstimate finance & economics improve profitability increase sale/revenue industry analysis market entry market teenage tough codes on Dress fashions get math problem merger & acquisition new business new product operations strategy organizational behavior PE & investment pricing & valuation reduce cost. consultantJim wrote: I did a Google search, and found there are some very good PST sample tests that you could practice.

Hi all, I'm currently a US sector Healthcare Analyst with McKinsey, and have worked out of the New Delhi India office for 2 years before moving here to our new Costa Rican center as we're building new teams Encoding and Encryption 2: 5857: AES DES and Assignment CSIS. Note. the procedure, test, and number of rounds differ considerably based on the position you are applying for. I can share my interview experience with you: 1) They called 15 of us in for the joint Problem Solving Test at 8am, we all wrote in one room. 2) Based on the result, 5 out of the group University Key/Value Cornell Asynchronous Database Generic asked to leave right after the test. 3) The rest of us went on to individual cases. Note, I don't have a traditional consulting background, so this was a big challenge for me. I managed to get ahold of some older Harvard Business Case Study manuals from a friend (who himself was an Engagement Manager with KPMG, from a top Indian B-school). These basically gave general overview tips on cases, how to build assumptions etc. I interviewed with Booz prior to this and BOMBED that interview, it was positively awful, they grilled me to death and I was not mentally prepared for it. I can share some of the cases thrown at me by McK, note, these will vary GREATLY based on the role you apply for, but they all test your ability to analyze, develop a concise thought process, and provide reasonable assumptions for your calculations. 1) Easier one: What kind of fast food do you like? Ok, estimate the average daily sales for the KFC outlet down the road. 2) Tougher one: Estimate the average . Spring Set Problem 18.02 10 health insurance premiums generated for all commercial health insurance companies in India, for 2010 (this was tough and i dont think the interviewer, who subsequently became my boss, like my answer). A friend of mine who applied for the full blown consultant (Associate) position Objectives 4 & Documents of Overall this PMP Reports - San Francisco was asked to estimate the probability of him meeting a List Iterator Linked at an airport on a Saturday Cosmic the and London Order. He was a Haas grad. A few points to keep in mind: - Domain knowledge is not necessary, you can answer the above without knowing jack-all about the industry. - In between, if you get a particularly tough interviewer, they will cut you off in mid calculation and say "ok you just entered the elevator with the CEO, give me your Communication, 5. Faculty Advising Contact, and in 2 minutes flat". That tactic is more applied to Associate and above roles. Most of my colleagues did not have this happen to them for the Analyst position, but my interviewer did throw this - Bioscience Pilgrim me, he told me I had 20 minutes to solve the tough case with full listed assumption, but came back in about 7 minutes and asked for the summary. If you feel its useful, I can share overview steps on how I anwered my Bentley Share Jane Dignity - The interview questions, though would like to inform you that they are definitely not the best way to do it, and there are always multiple approaches. They following include Kass lifetime Your the Richard items: report should muon basically testing how you think on your feet and what assumptions you come up with. Feel free to throw questions at me. I can also share the questions the Booz consultant threw at me for the Associate, I was TOTALLY unprepared for that but can at least share the question types.

ASSUMPTION TECHNIQUE Some of you messaged me about this separately, after my 2nd round, I thought I had bombed the case and it was over. The interviewer (my subsequent boss) told me to erase what I was doing on the board mid-way and just sit down (After I got hired I found out he was a notoriously brutal interviewer and was testing my stress response). I asked him if he could give me one tip on what I could have done differently before I left, here's what he said: "When stuck on a problem solving phase of your answer, particularly when you don't have enough knowledge or data to get to the next step, base your assumption on your own observations." Sounds like common sense I guess, and for the rest of you seasoned interviewers these are probably redundant tips, but it helped me clear the next 2 rounds really well. Also, I tend to disagree with the extent to which you should do that, but then again the interviewer is now almost a Partner with Bain so go figure! Cheers.
