gmat books reviews available now

This blog post about recommended books was long overdue, I have been asked about books and material several times by GMAT students, so I thought, I should write a special article exclusively for it.
That page, for GMAT books recommendations and review is finally up; (yep, the same page you can access through nav bar above!!) Still there’re some more books I should review. I will do it once I get more time for this. Thanks for the patience.
I’d also write review for beyong GMAT phase (that is MBA admission, b-school research & life at b schools phase) There’re plenty of books out there which are worth reading even if you’re still at GMAT prep phase.

Stay tuned for more reviews 😉

These days I am looking out for all scholarships fellowship and financial aid for MBA studies. As promised earlier I’ll make it available for public & probably host it on beat The GMAT Forums or on del.icio.us.

I checked delicious bookmarking tool after quite long time & I am surprised to see the new looks of the site. It’s revamped.

I will check all b-schools website, all blogs. admission consultants blogs, MBA related forums scholarship forums I will gulp whatever information I get. & compile a list of various scholarship fellowship or financial aids available for MBA studies.

Each & all links will be hand-picked. I’ll also a small review about the scholarship or whatever on offering. I think to do this delicious is the best & effective tool. Stay tuned & keep eye on MBA scholarship bookmarks link. haha, right now I have just added my couple of blogs for testing. Soon the it’ll be flooding. (still I’ll make sure to post quality content)

I am bit confuse as to where & how I should publish this information. If you have any opinion please drop me a comment or post a reply at suggestion & feedback thread at BTG forums.

While reading an e-book offline about the survey at b-schools, I realised that Pagalguy.com also offered its members the gold membership at vault.com

Presenting you Vault/Pagalguy business school buzz book!!

It’s a shareware ebook so if you’re not a member of pagalguy, forums don’t worry much! I’ll soon make it available to members of Beat The GMAT forums, which I think has pretty strong base of its prospective readers.
The e-book is an exclusive survey conducted by Vault in association with pagalguy.com.

Tthe survey covers
Admission
Academics
Employment perspective
Quality of life
Social life (beyond b-school)

Schools include;

1. Columbia
2. Harvard
3. Stern
4. Kellogg
5. Thunderbird
6. Berkely Haas
7. UCLA Anderson

These are undoubtedly the top b-schools of North America & Europe region.
