- Case in Point is really abundant in providing practice cases and their solutions. I found these cases incredibly helpful in understanding different industry problems as well as different types of case questions.
- This book is good for practicing Profit/Loss, M&A, new business or geography, losing/gaining market share, and competitor attack cases
- Where this book is great at providing practice cases, it fails at providing a deep understanding for exactly HOW to crack these cases.
- The frameworks that this books provides are very weak, and shallow.
- The author settles for simple frameworks like "The Four C's", "The Four P's" and "Profit= Revenue-Loss". While these frameworks are relevant, they're very weak and will make you look like an amateur to your interviewer.
For that reason, I would recommend pairing this book with "Crack the Case" by David Ohrvall. Crack the Case is almost the opposite of Case in Point. CTC has excellent frameworks and really helps you understand the business knowledge behind doing well on cases. However, CTC lacks good practice cases: they're difficult to practice alone and unnecessarily complicated to practice with a partner. Moreover, they don't provide a clear and in depth solution that helps you strengthen your original answer.
DISCLAIMER FOR KINDLE PURCHASES: Case in Point isn't well-suited for kindle reading. The book has a lot of embedded charts that don't show properly on kindles. The text comes out extremely small and difficult to read. Also, for general text, where bullet points are used, the format doesn't line up and looks sloppy.
The dialogue aspect was especially useful when I didn't have anyone to prep with.
A great starting point for those pursuing a career in consulting or those prepping for case interviews.
Some of you will be like "WTF" while others will find it easy. Regardless, it's an amazing experience to see someone think out these type of questions and more so that you're better prepared in the future. I now take a whole new approach to answering questions that I never did before and I'd highly recommend you check it out too.
