I purchased this book to get a better feel for what it is like to be a Management Consultant, if I had what it takes to get in to a good firm, and what I needed to do over the next 2 years of grad school to prepare. None of these questions were satisfactory answered by this book. A large chunk of the book are short essays by Management Consultants written in the 90s. Some of them are OK, but the case studies they used were so vague that they were completely useless (don't use company names, don't give details of what changes were made, etc.). Also, they reference the rise of the internet and how great .com companies are (we all know how that ended).

The rest of the book aims to explain the different industries and functions management consulting plays a role, goes over the steps for getting in to a target firm, and case interview Q/A. This is somewhat helpful, but it does not do a good job of any of this. For example, I read in several places on the internet that consulting firms consider your GMAT score important when you apply. This brings up many questions such as what are considered acceptable scores for most firms, how important are they, is it just important for getting the first interview, etc. This was not mentioned at all. A second example is that I am learning that a referral from a firm's manager is one of the best ways to get in to a target firm. This is also not covered at all in the book. In fact, about the only information in the book is mostly things you already know (or should know if you have spent even a small amount of time researching management consulting).

Bottom Line: There are a lot of good books out there on Management Consulting and this is not one of them.

If you are getting ready to apply for management consulting jobs, then this book is worth the investment. It is expecially good for its advice on the application process and the case interview discussion. It summarizes nicely the most common case frameworks and it gives 100 example cases (out of which 10 are discussed) - these are more than sufficient for the interview preparation.

This book is dedicated to general job seeking and interviewing techniques applicable to any employment situation. The chapter on consulting models and case questions is decent, but the remaining 200+ pages are irrelevant drivel that sheds little light on the inside machinations of a consulting firm, consulting positions, duties, expectations, and daily life. After spending a couple of hours reading this book, I feel no more prepared to approach leading firms for interviews than before I picked this title up.

This book is boring and dated. I mean its ok if you have absolutely no idea about business or consulting. So I suppose if you wanted to know about it then maybe the book is ok. But then again, you probably shouldn't be looking into consulting if you have absolutely no idea what it is.

That is all I can say to the authors of this book!
Five months ago, I wanted to make a career switch. Since I like troubleshooting and problem solving, and, to be frank, I needed a higher salary if I was to continue living in San Francisco, I thought consulting might be a good avenue to pursue.
My first interview was with Deloitte and Touche, and ... I BOMBED IT. Although I had talked to several of my friends who were in or had been in consulting, and even a business professor at UC Berkeley (where I went to college), I was ill-prepared for the CASE INTERVIEW.
I agree with another reviewer (Carlsbad, CA) that case interviews may not be the best tool for recruiting consulants. Afterall, how many consultants (outside veterinary consultants) really need to know how many kittens there are in the USA? HOWEVER, until the PREMIERE consulting firms stop using them to gage how one thinks under pressure about an unfamiliar problem, then you cannot beat Biswas and Twitchell's "Management Consulting: A Complete Guide to the Indusrty" and Wet Feet Press' "So You Want to be a Management Consultant" for preparation.
{I guess where I disagree with Carlsbad, CA's review is that this book (or any book) written as a guide to a recruiting process and the industry as a whole, should not and cannot be faulted for the problems in the recruitment process or in the industry. I am thankful that this book covered the case interview so well -- since that is exactly what I faced when I was looking for consulting jobs. Moreover, unlike the reviewer from Carlsbad, CA who is a business professor and a part-time consultant, I now do consulting full-time. While there are times I don't enjoy working long hours, I cannot fault this book for telling me about the often grueling lifestyle -- although I can certainly fault the industry for it.}
Now, if you have the money, I suggest that you buy both this book, and the Wet Feet Press book. But if you don't have money to burn, I would definitely buy Biswas' and Twitchell's Guide first for two reasons: 1) it offers realistic qualifications about the grueling consulting lifestlye, and 2) it has great essays by reknowned consultants.
These two parts will help you to answer questions from recruiters about your personal lifestyle requirements (are you willing to travel, are you willing to be away from home, are you willing to work 60-80 hours a week consistently), and it always helps to know the names and histories of renkowned consultants (like John Wilkerson, who has an essay in this book) when discussing your future as a consultant.
More importantly, you have to decide whether Management Consulting is the right career for you (The sections about lifestyle (work requirements) and by renowned consultants will help you answer that question).
When I was done interviewing, I had four offers to consider from some great firms! While I can't say that all of it was due to reading this book or Wet Feet Press' book, a large part of my success came from being better prepared for case interviews, and knowing what to expect from a consulting career.
Thank you Mr. Biswas and Mr. Twitchell!

This book prepared me exceedingly well for my case interviews. It is a MUCH better guide than any of the other ones I've seen on the market, from Wet Feet or Vault, or anyone else. This book provides far more case questions and answers than any other resource, and the authors have taken the time to walk through cases step by step in a way that teaches you to master any case question. With 100 sample cases and 15 frameworks, this book soundly beats out the competition. I don't know what I would have done without Management Consulting!!! All MBAs should definitely add this book to their library.
