How to Practice and Pass
Solve, McKinsey's Digital Assessment Game

McKinsey’s recruiting process begins with a traditional cover letter and resume and ends with multiple rounds of case interviews. Between the beginning and end, there is often a middle step added. Because it is extremely labor intensive for McKinsey to provide the staff to give live case interviews, McKinsey typically uses some kind of computer-based screening process that doesn’t involve taking otherwise billable hours to interview candidates that are unlikely to pass the case interview.

McKinsey is currently using their McKinsey Assessment Game, “Solve” (formerly called the McKinsey Problem Solving Game) for this purpose.

(Note: For those of you that applied to McKinsey in prior recruiting seasons, as of the 2022-2023 recruiting season, McKinsey’s Solve Game has largely replaced the McKinsey Problem Solving Test.)

To help my students pass Solve, McKinsey’s assessment game, I have two resources for you.

The first resource is the McKinsey Assessment Game Simulator that I call the “McK Game.” The McK Game tests the same skills as Solve, McKinsey’s assessment game, and introduces you to this type of “game.”

Unlike other video games, the real McKinsey Solve Game and the McK Game that mimics it require strategic thinking, logical reasoning, and in many instances, extensive math calculations. Most video games for fun don’t require a pen and paper to write down calculations. This category of game does. The McK Game is taken online via a web browser and an internet connection. You can play it on a laptop.

The second resource is my quick reference guide on “How to Pass the McKinsey Digital Assessment Game Solve.”

For the 2022 release of this game, I’ve decided to also offer a bundle option at a discounted rate.  There are two options for ordering:

McK Game: McKinsey Assessment Game Practice Simulator
(3 Game-Play Bundle)

This Deluxe offering includes THREE game-play sessions.  Within each game session, there are two mini-games, both designed for practice developing the skills assessed in a live McKinsey problem-solving game.  Here are the details and what’s included:

    • My digital guide on how to pass Solve, McKinsey’s digital assessment game;
    • THREE game-play sessions (with each session allowing you to play two mini-games);
    • Your score on each mini-game so you can evaluate your own performance and whether you would have passed in a live assessment.

This option offers the lowest rate per game play available (and may not be available in the future).

The investment for the Deluxe (3 Game Plays) offering is $117 (This is a 17% discount from the standard individual game-play rates).

OR

McK Game: McKinsey Assessment Game Practice Simulator
(1 Game Play)

This standard offering includes one game-play session.  Within each game session, there are two mini-games, both designed for practice developing the skills assessed in a live McKinsey problem-solving game.  Here are the details and what’s included:

    • My digital guide on how to pass Solve, McKinsey’s digital assessment game;
    • One single game-play session (allowing you to play two mini-games);
    • Your score on each mini-game so you can evaluate your own performance and whether you would have passed in a live assessment.

The investment for the Standard (1 Game Play) offering is $47.

Practical Details
  • Access to your game play(s) is delivered digitally, and you will receive access instructions within 15 minutes of purchase.
  • We use an industry-standard delivery that is compatible across all major computing platforms.

Access to these practice games is only available through CaseInterview.com.  So chances are that none of the candidates that are interviewing in the same office will have practiced with this game, giving you a huge competitive advantage.

Take your McKinsey case interview preparation to the next level, and take advantage of the opportunity to practice with the McK Game.

Read what some of our 120,000 students have to say:

"I received offers from McKinsey (Singapore) and Bain (China) during the past recruitment season. Without your materials, it would be impossible for me to get the offers. I have decided to accept McKinsey's offer which gives me more opportunities to work on public sector projects. Thank you again."
"Just wanted to give you a massive thanks for the material you have created to assist with case interview prep. I managed to secure an offer from McKinsey. I am an experienced hire with over 10 years of broad business leadership experience. When I started my career ten years ago, I never considered a career in consulting nor did I understand the amount of prep that goes into the interview process and how many times candidates are willing to keep trying to get into the firms of their choice. Thanks so much again Victor."

You can feel confident starting out ordering our deluxe bundle of game plays. If you are dissatisfied after your first game play, you may request a refund for the remainder of your (UNplayed) games. Just send an email to [email protected] after the first game play.
