Getting Help with the 2015 Case Simulation

Question: I know once the competition starts, we cannot have outside help. I was just looking to clarify - is the practice round considered part of the competition?  Can we walk through the simulation with a professor and ask for advice?  Alternatively, can we ask about a certain topic (ie: pallet locations) and ask if there are any suggestions of resources where we can find more info?

Answer: There are no other people who can help you during the rounds (like professors). You are free to look up topics on the internet or use other reference material. But as the rounds progress, you will have less time per round.

5 days for the first round (practice), 4 days for the 2nd round, 1.5 hours for each round after that.

We obviously cannot monitor you when you are off site, but we hope you play by the rules.
