4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great source of information but use your own judgement 16 août 2010
Par GMAT Club (Expert) - Publié sur Amazon.com

I started GMAT Club - one of the largest MBA communities and this book is probably the most often referenced. However, it is by no means perfect and you can get the most out of it, if you set your expectations correctly. Here are my thoughts:

Pros:
- All-in-one book (covers every stage of the application process)
- Includes 67 Real Essays covering 31 specific Topics (however, there are some really old ones)
- Great sections on Recommendations (do's and dont's as well as what is appropriate), also good section on interviews.
- Has fantastic little insights (framed sections) that provide additional insight from admissions officers of schools on various topics such as gmat score split, recommendations, retaking gmat, etc
- Sets the proper expectation in terms of time needed for the process. Most people underestimate the time needed to take the gmat, write essays, proofread them, and then have time for a job/family.
- I found insights from admissions to be very valuable (in many sections of the book). Most of the time, they don't tell you some big secret, but get a confirmation about a certain process (waitlist for example or application review) is very helpful and comforting that you are on the right track

Cons:
- Does not provide any information about schools specifics (???). It is called how to get into the top business schools but actually does not cover the top schools in detail
- Extra stuff (starts from Why MBA & types of MBA programs and ends with post-acceptance information, though frankly, for most, it will be the substance in between that will matter the most). Only about 400 pages out of 600 are the meat, which is plenty actually
- Some outdated parts that have changed since
- Some Essays are outdated (some are 10 years old - ouch). They are also really long. In the past 5 years the length has been cut down to just a page or even less.

Bottom Line: Good book to get an intro to MBA Application but does not provide any insights how to get into the top programs (or info about them) and has some outdated information (nothing dangerous). If you are serious about getting into top 10 or top 20, You will still need to do a lot of research on your own or possibly recruit an admissions consultant to maximize your chances. Use it for preliminary research/craft your strategy - definitely helpful but take it with a grain of salt and keep in mind - the other 50,000 applicants probably read it too.

Some Other Suggestions & Thoughts:
1. Plan ahead - draft a schedule and stick to it
2. Find the program that fits you best. People get disappointed even with a Top 5 school. It is important to take from the school and also give
3. Understand your strengths and weaknesses - be real with yourself and with the admissions. Don't lie or make up things - I know it may seem like a better short term strategy but it backfires in the long run
4. Know your story and tell it well - to get to the top, you need to have a story that goes through your essays, recommendations, interview, and resume
5. Don't copy/plagiarize any essays - you won't be along and those people are quickly picked out and kicked out. You won't have a second chance. Also if your AWA essays are under 4.5 and your school essays are perfect, that will be a red flag.

Please let me know if any questions about this book, I respond to comments.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If it had up-to-date essays, it would be gold 6 janvier 2012
Par Guest - Publié sur Amazon.com

Of all the books I've been buying so far to prepare my applications (it feels like ALL OF THEM, btw), this one has been my favorite so far. It seems pretty no-nonsense (which appeals to me) and gets to the point.

The only thing holding back from 5 stars is, as others have noted, the examples seem really dated....I think one of the sample essays was super long, and none of the top schools accept essays that long anymore. Plus I hate when the "sample" essays are of rock-star types ("the PhD with the Noble Prize who is also an Olympic athlete and whose dad was an alchoholic!") << NOT that this book has THAT, I'm just exaggerating, but....sometimes in these books the "examples" they use are of such rock stars (or people who have overcome crazy amounts of Stuff), that I feel like they probably would have gotten in anyway, even if their essays were terrible.

ANYWAY, back to the main point: I like this book the most -- I think it's no-nonsense, and it was also recommended to me by a former boss who went to a top school as helping him get in years ago (an earlier version, of course).....

...I just can't fathom why they would bother republishing a new edition but still have so much outdated stuff in there??? Oh well. Don't let that deter you. It's a pain, but it's not a deal-breaker.

Good book particularly for the recommendations and campus visits sections. Rest of the book, including essays section, is still pretty decent if you're starting from scratch, but some of the essays are dated and there's not a whole lot of school-specific advice.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 The best MBA essay book 11 janvier 2013
Par Dilbert - Publié sur Amazon.com

When it comes to MBA essay advice, this book is king. Montauk thoroughly analyzes the many essay archetypes out there and helps you shape very solid essays with the profile you have. Unfortunately, I think the profile section is quite lacking. This is a great book to write your essays once you have created that profile, but it is not comprehensive enough to use as your only resources.

MBA admissions is primarily about 1) having a well thought out, appealing, and differentiated profile and 2) selling that profile through your essays. Montauk does a great job of the second point, but falls short in the first. Too much of this book assumes you have already created a comprehensive profile. If you haven't, your essays are likely to be quite disjointed by simply following this book. For example, you might write about your greatest achievement and create, using this book, a wonderful essay, but that essay is unlikely to tie in to your other essays. Really, each essay should be interwoven with the others - displaying different aspects of your profile but telling a common theme. Montauk barely helps you explore that profile, and doesn't address at all how to communicate that profile through your essays. As a result, you'll likely create essays that are independently wonderful, but just average when read together.

There are a few other flaws to this book, as others have pointed out. Much of the book is filler and frankly useless. The essay topics are also very old and in some cases no longer broached by schools. The book also quotes MBA directors that no longer work at their respective schools. Montauk recently published an updated version which may address these issues. I was happy with this book, but it is incomplete due to the poor profile section.
