McKinsey Test

 
#1 McKinsey Test
12/10/2006 20:13

K

Hi! I've just got the Problem Solving Test from McKinsey. Could someone advise where it's possible to find the answers for it and probably some additional materials to practice before the real Test?

Thanks!

Helper to K (#1)

The answers come in the pack? No?

The test on the day is harder (but not necessarily 'hard'), i'm sorry to say. The quant questions are longer/more elaborate. They aren't hard, but under exam/test-type pressure, I found them mind-boggling which made me infuriated with myself (is that crappy English?). In saying that, I passed! Ha! So you definitely can.

Also, it's not negatively marked, so, if you find your time is nearly up (like say, 1 minute left), just go back to the questions you haven't answered and answer them randomly. You have a 25% chance of getting each correct, after all.

Ok, byeee

I have the answers to the one I was sent but I think there are a few different ones. Which one do you have? What is the topic? I have the one about hot dogs.

Marking to K (#5)

Do not fill in random answers at the end. The test is negatively marked (-0.5 pt for a wrong answer).

Hi! Could someone send me the answers to McKinsey sample Test, which they are sending before the Real Test (it's about hot dogs) to jetset05@mail.ru? I really need it ASAP.

THANK YOU!

Marker,

Why would you deliberately try to scupper anyone's chances by saying it is negatively marked?

It isn't.

I hate that. It's such a crappy move.

To anyone who is taking the test.

Ask the recruiter on the day. They will tell you whether it is negatively marked.

No need for debate.

new-ish grad to TIBO (#10)

Mine was negatively marked, and I sat it last year.

That said, I wouldn't spend too much time worrying - there's not an awful lot you can do to prepare. It is hard (and it's not much consolation I know, but the one at the final round is a whole lot harder!), but the best preparation is probably checking your quick-calculating skillz and getting enough sleep the night before.

I am no maths genius, and I passed on both the fisrt and final round, it's primarily about logic, and with a bit of hard thinking you'll be fine! It's also important to note that, particularly at the final round stage, there are people who fail the test but still get offers - it is not the be-all-and-end-all of getting into McKinsey (if indeed you want to - I didn't choose them myself, but it's all a matter of taste!)

Bingobango to K (#19)

Please tell me that whoever wrote their e-mail address as'toxicspunk@...' was kidding - as a manager I often come across applicants (but only the pretty ones - cue drum roll!) who use their idiotic and immature university e-mail addresses on applications.

'littlemissnaughtyminx69@hotmail.com' got an interview in a bar but not a job!

'starwarsfancydresspartyboy@theforceiswithyou.com didn't get either!

guys - instead of asking for individual advice and giving out your emails, why not request those who have been to McK interviews to detail their experience here on this forum for everyones's benefit? Its weird to come onto a public forum and ask strangers for individual advice.

I would appreciate a copy of the test details too, seen as everyone else appears to be asking I might as well too.

Many thanks and good luck to all, B.

mkovatchev to tt (#33)

Well, I would be surpised if anyone is still sending the test around three months later after the original e-mail, and therefore if someone actually received it I would appreciate some sharing with the others - we are obviously all preparing for the test , so more practical tips would be welcomed.

Thanks

TestMad to mkovatchev (#34)

Hi all,

Well, I have the practice questions and answers which they sent to me the other day. I was wondering how people who actually sat the test found it? And if they have any tips in preparing for the day?

I have the feeling my trip to London may be a little waste of time, but I guess youve got to try!

P.s. for those who did apply and got the offer but didnt take it, what company did you end up going with? (if thats not too personal?)

Many thanks

Rob
