For the case study interview, make sure you focus on the important areas of the call. Don't panic because all the answers are clear, even though at times not the call is not. For the technical competency based questions, you should focus on your previous experiences in the workplace and/or education and reduce them to the specific question being asked of you. Go into as much detail as you can.

Just some background questions, a bit about yourself, and some strength based - giving examples of how you have adapted to changes, things you have done to improve things in the workplace etc.

The best thing to do is to prepare your answers before hand. Instead of searching your memories at the time to find 'A time when...' gather together a number of times when you excelled at something or struggled and have them fresh in your head before you go in.

I believe for any interview that you should do your preparation first, read up on the company and also provide evidence of strengths and past experiences.
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. The more organised you are, the easier the interview will be and the more the interviewer will see that you stand out.
