From the Publisher

Erin and Destin have created a refreshingly no-nonsense guide to consulting interview prep. With a structured, step-by-step plan and the sort of candid advice you'd give a younger sibling, they take the mystery out of the interview process and prepare students to walk into interviews with confidence.—Lydia Kearney, former Strategy Consultant, MBA candidate, Haas School of Business

By including expert testimonials, firm introductions as well as mock-up case interviews and tactical tips, Whitehurst and Robinson have created a well-written and easy-to-digest guide that will help candidates successfully prepare for management consulting interviews.—Robin L., Associate, McKinsey & Company
