Format: Broché
Ce livre donne des conseils qui permettent de se focaliser sur les éléments essentiels pris en compte par les écoles à chacune des phases d'une candidature à un programme MBA.
Il rappelle quelles sont les attentes des écoles et comment bien y répondre et s'y préparer au mieux pour maximiser l'atteinte de son objectif : être sélectionné à l'école de son choix.
Le livre est bien structuré en chapitre qui traite chacune des phases. Il est clair et se lit facilement, et permet dans tous les cas de se ré-approprier une communication écrite ou verbale efficace.

Great book, but nothing new from previous editions 31 août 2007
Par Prashanth S. Cherukuri - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Needless to say, this book is now the Bible of MBA applications.

What works:

1. Lots of advice, starting from the basics.
2. Tons of feedback from Admissions Committee Members
3. Essay samples

What doesnt:

1. Essay samples are limited to people who were leaders, consultants, etc etc. I dont believe these form the majority, Instead, I think the majority applicants are engineers, investment bankers and people from Asia. So the examples should have been chosen to fit that demographic too. I am more interested to see how an engineer represented himself well to get into a B-school, rather than read an essay of someone who was in the Army asa Lieutenant. It doesnt help much by publishing essays of people who're inherently different because of a very rare background.

2. Nothing much has really changed over the 2002 edition of the book. So, if you have the old one, I dont think this is worth buying. You could just use the library.

Good book but use with care 5 mars 2009
Par Kanishk Rastogi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Written in a complete primer style, good to clear your concepts of MBA admissions. Since almost every applicant has this book, be careful while reading its essays and make sure that yours do NOT have anything remotely similar. Adcom people have read hundreds of essays over the years and are too sharp to identify the patterns and similarities.

Otherwise, the book is good to know the importance of different elements of an application. Good bedtime reading, if you start your planning an year ahead from the app deadlines. Otherwise, depending on your schedule and deadlines, you can use the book per author's guidelines.

Essays: There are a lot of essays in it from different B-Schools and different type of candidates. I found some of them to be too long and sort of boring sometimes. Word-limit is a biggest constraint for some schools and they are strict on it.

Recos: The chapters on Recos was really very useful with Do's and Dont's, how to approach your recommender, sample recos, and their pros and cons.

General App guidelines: generally useful in organizing yourself and your tasks for this process.

MBA: General information on different type of MBAs and how to choose the right one for you. This is very subjective topic though and depends on the individual's career planning and objectives.

Comments from Adcom members: There are lot of comments from adcom members, Deans of different schools in each chapter on almost every topic. Very helpful in customizing your app and essays for those schools

This book helped me get into a top school! 26 août 2008
Par sanjos10 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I used the previous edition of the book in 2006 (green cover) and it helped me get into a top 5 business school. In fact I got into both the top 5 schools that I had applied to.

My advice to applicants is to pay special attention to essays and recommendation letters. If the writers are too busy, write one up for them (call it a template) and let them edit it. That way you can get them to say what you want them to say more or less.

Spend a LOT of time on the essays, they can make or break you more than the GMAT. Read them over and over again, read them aloud, have someone read them to you and have them reviewed by someone who got into the school you want to get into. The sample essays in the book were great to know what kind of information the admissions committee would look for. I took as much as 30 days of every day work to get my essays in the form that I was happy with.

Montauk's book guides you through this process and that was the only book I used.

Essential resource for top MBA programs 8 novembre 2007
Par M. Khan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is the bible for getting into the top MBA schools. I am currently in the process of applying to some of the top schools and have talked to a lot of current and recent grads, all of whom swear by this book. It walks you through all the steps required and the right way to approach the situation. I had my first round interview last week and knowing how the different schools differ in their approach helped tremendously.

STILL TBD on if I'm successful in my bid for the top schools but so far, I feel I'm getting all the right insider tips from this book.

huge book, worthwhile and seems complete 1 février 2008
Par B. Weatherup - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a huge book, worthwhile and seems complete. I also have the Your MBA Game Plan: Proven Strategies for Getting into the Top Business Schools, and this book is ten times the size. I have yet to read the whole thing and probably will never; however it is easy to find the data I need for my search. I also like the discussions about why and where to go, not just the how like in other books.
