Excellent livre pour qui souhaites intégrer un M.B.A.
Certes, ce livre est orienté M.B.A. américains. Mais on trouve également dedans de nombreux conseils et exemples appropriés pour les MBA Européens (type INSEAD, IMD, LBS, etc ...); la proportion est d'ailleurs de 60/40% environ en faveur des MBA outre-atlantique.
De nombreux exemples également à méditer.
Je le conseille à quiconque souhaites intégrer un M.B.A. (pour ne pas dire qu'il devrait presque être obligatoire !!)

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
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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:

- 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

- 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- Some outdated parts that have changed since
- Some Essays are outdated (some are 10 years old - ouch).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.
Best Regards,
Founder of GMAT Club.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 The best MBA essay book 11 janvier 2013
Par Dilbert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for positioning and strategy, but take with a grain of salt. 29 décembre 2009
Par A. Lin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I'm currently in the application process now, and I've found the book helpful. (I may have other thoughts depending on the outcome of the process.) It's good to help frame your thinking (e.g. how to position yourself, what to ask your recommenders for) and to understand the perspective of your admissions reviewers. For these purposes, the book has been useful.

That said, some of the specifics are outdated and based on the paper application process (most of the examples appear to be from the late 90's). I certainly found this irritating, especially given the constraints posed by online applications.

For example, the numerous sample essays are mostly from pre-2000. Their content is useful for broad-brush instructional purposes, but there are significant limitations to their value. A particularly glaring example is one of the sample Stanford essays, which checks in at an astounding 4.5 pages and is approximately 1700 words. Recent applicants will know that 1800 words is the allotment for the school's _entire essay section_, and 1700 words is 2.5 times the recommended length of 750 words. In this particular case, it does a disservice to the teaching--given 1700 words for a single essay, many people could cite a litany of compelling reasons why they're a great candidate.

Another similar problem is the sample recommendation letter. The recommendation letter is 5 pages long in the book and borders on ludicrous. It's instructional insofar as the "type" of thing that should be said, but it poorly manages expecations as to scope/breadth. For most candidates, an understanding of how to manage the latter would probably be helpful. There are several other such (admittedly specific) anachronisms which make the book seem a little bit outdated.

Overall, though, recommended--just manage your expectations on what the book can provide (i.e. high-level, strategic advice).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very good book for getting your act together for MBA Apps 27 août 2000
Par Jim Carson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
"How to Get into the Top MBA Programs" is a very good resource on the business school application process. The book expounds upon three points very well:
1. Know yourself. Understand why you are considering a business school, determine what you expect to get out of it, and identify which programs are best for *your needs*. Be honest with yourself.
Assuming you've determined an MBA program is the way you need to go, you have to determine which offering is most appropriate. Objectively evaluate schools, don't blindly go off of the numerous "rankings." These are purely quantitative and may not be the best fit. (For example, if you want to do marketing and not finance, Northwestern might be a better choice than Wharton.) Evaluate programs, interview alumni and current students, and VISIT campus. Pay attention to any "gut" feel.
2. Market your strengths and weaknesses.
The ideal applicant will have a 4.0 undergraduate GPA, 800 GMAT, speak seventeen languages, served president of IBM, and have several gold medals in swimming. If this doesn't describe you, you're "just folks" (to borrow from Harry Bauld) and need to market yourself.
Montauk has some interesting generalizations for backgrounds (e.g., engineer, sales) and their general strengths and weaknesses.
One valuable suggestion is to choose and manage your recommenders. They should say what they want, and in their own words, but you can help guide the perspectives they emphasize on your candidacy so you come across as a multidimensional applicant.
The essay writing suggestions are generally very good, especially the "angle" that some of the questions are taking. (This is very similar to the "Knock 'em Dead" by Martin Yate.) However, for actually writing your essay, I would strongly recommend reading "On Writing the College Application Essay" by Harry Bauld.
3. Stay on top of the admissions process.
To a great extent, this is really "make sure everyone gets stuff when they should." Provide dossiers for your recommenders, make sure you have a completed application in on time, follow up with people.
Because the application process is competitive, Montauk offers suggestions on reinforcing your candidacy be waitlisted or are called in for an interview.
Throughout each chapter, Montauk includes comments from various directors of admissions. These basically reiterate what the text says and (especially for the US schools) are a regurgitation of things you'd read in the applications packet. For example, "The GMAT score is as important as any other single element in the admissions process." Duh, otherwise it wouldn't be required.
Overall, this is a very good book, offering a lot of perspective on the self-evaluation and application processes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Yet another glowing review - a good addition to your armoury 3 avril 2004
Par SJ - Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'll keep this simple. I liked the book - it gives general and specific advice about the whole MBA admissions process. I suggest you read it at least the year before you start the whole process (including taking the GMAT). And if, like me, you pick it up in the middle of the whole process, it can still help you.
Basically - when you're sitting alone in that room while prepping for your GMAT, or staring at a computer screen while typing up yet another attempt at soul-baring in an essay, the book gives you some important guidelines and things to avoid. I especially like the parts where admissions people from colleges are quoted. In the end though - you write the answers and you smile during the interviews. Just make sure you know exactly "Why X College" and "Why an MBA".
It's a good read with commonsense advice - a good weapon as you hack your way through the admissions process.
