Read full description of the books:
Almost useless. I am stunned by the incredible lack of clarity for a book whose sole purpose is to prepare you to lay out your thinking in the most clear way during a case interview.
The Ivy Case System is pointless. There is no learning involved, it is only memorization of 12 case types and the follow up questions for each. Once you have done that, it is admitted that cases almost NEVER fall into only one type so you are back to just thinking through each situation logically as if you had never read the Ivy system.
Strong emphasis is placed on being able to read and create your own charts, graphs, and tables yet there is no instruction at all on how to make a good version of any. In fact, the charts and graphs in the book are often nearly indecipherable because of a complete lack of labeling. My favorite is the "Number Table" with which I am supposed to learn to multiply factors of ten. However, there are no labels (only the title "Number Table") and only one axis of the chart is made obvious by a gray coloring. The only way the reader could possibly figure out what the chart is telling them is to all ready know how to fill it in in its entirety.
The only reason this book does not get the lowest possible rating is the long set of example cases at the back of the book. For those of us in technical fields rather than business, it is good to see the types of problems that are to be expected. Even this section is flawed. The comments at the end of each case are too short and too vague. It would be helpful to hear a break down of what the most direct and appropriate answer would have been rather than “the student did a good job analyzing the chart and came up with a number of good possible solutions for the client.”
Overall, the only reason to buy this book is to see example case questions before an interview. Don't expect much help beyond that.
