Practice numeric/verbal reasoning tests online. Research Deloitte specific interview questions - won't find word for word questions, but will find the personal qualities they want to hear in an answer (e.g. an example of leadership, problem solving etc.), meaning you can then prepare answers rather than having to think on your feet under pressure.
