GMAT local, GMAT events near you.

Introducing GMAT study resources respective to your local area, event happening where you live.
Beat The GMAT has recently launched three features related to your regional/city specific GMAT needs.

  1. Directory of free GMAT events

  2. Directory of GMAT coaching classes near you (in your city)

  3. Directory of city threads of local study group

Let me talk about it in detail,
The live GMAT events are mostly (I am most certain that they are free) available for free, maybe a trial class or a free workshop hosted by big GMAT coaching institute or MBA admission consultant. Take a sneek-peek of a sample description of live events at North River Chicago by ManhattanGMAT. Then there’s region wise classification of GMAT classes (read: point no. 2). See, for example GMAT test prep courses abailable at NYC New York city.
You will notice that the first two links/points are only available for US of America. However, in future it would show events across the globe. We’ve seen overwhelming response to our Lets meet up forum & thus to make this easier for our members searching for the local study group, I’ve created a directory of city threads. Check out the thread, you’ll be surprised we’ve covered more than 70 regions (& still counting). People have formed study group and I think, they meet occassionally to discussi GMATF strategies and their MBA admission blues.
Exciting isn’t it? 🙂 So what are you waiting for? Find your regional thread for meet ups and more.

GMAT lessons online free by Kaplan for BTG members

Hello dear GMAT students,
There’s announcement for all Beat The GMAT members out there who’re preparing for the test.
Kaplan is conducting live-online lecture session & if you’re a member of Beat The GMAT forums you’ll get the free pass for first lecture series of their online course. I think it’s  an introductory lecture, an overview of GMAT but will cover many fundamental yet important topics like how to make schedule  or GMAT’s structure & scoring pattern.
There’re three different time slots for your convenience check out the page for more details. (& you can post a reply on the forums for any query or further details)
The event will be live one on 2nd Feb andother two on 4th Feb. all three are kept in different time slots.
But there’s one necessary condition: you have to be the member of BeatTheGMAT forums. I know most of my readers are already members of that forum but just in case if you’re not register to the forums for free

MBA Insider businessweek now free?

I used to visit Business Week website & read a lot b-school admission & MBA application & GMAT related content.

However their cream content (read: best of businessweek bschool admissions section) was available only to premium/paid subscribers. & I used to stuck just there as I never subscribed to paid content. 
It was (is) known as MBA insider. It’s an online magazine from BusinessWeek which you need to subscribe on yearly basis with 25-30 $. (Sorry, I dont remember the exact amount../ )  & now after  a long time when I visited businessweek.com I could browse the site freely without any subscription notice. This is strange. Have they made “MBA insider” free/open to all? Some time back I discovered their forums became open to non-members. thinking that, it could be an obvious move. But there’s a twist. I asked my senior at U.S. to have paid subscription of MBA insider for me. Funny thing is when I visited Business Week, I had prepared myself to start paid subscription but they dont make me pay now!! 
I never used the password given by my friend from America but still been able to browse the premium content. 
Now I’m confused & therefore I am making this post. Am I the only one (luck>?) who got this access? or all MBA aspirants from India get free access & our brothers from United States have to pay? Or it’s free for everyone? 
In that case, why I dont see the subscription request page?
Do you know the url? if yes Please send  it to me alongwith snapshot… as url I know dont show any payment option. neither it blocks me from seeing premium content…
Thats funny.  I am tempted to say “who cares” but .. BusinessWeek are you listening?

BusinessWeek Forums made open for public

I may be quite late in finding this out but at least for me it’s ^the news^.
BusinessWeek Forums is now made open for all.
It’s the “CLASSIC” and one of the oldest & perhaps the largest and reputed online forums for related to MBA preparation and admissions.
Only problem with BusinessWeek Forum compared with other online forums was, it was only for its members. That means no guests were allowed see the content and the topic discussions of the forums. Today when I checked the site after almost an era, I could roam around without logging in!
Yes, that I think is significant move from BusinessWeek. They were actually stopping many of its prospective members by having “members only forum”. Many applicants still rely only on Google and BusinessWeek.
It’s a welcome move from BW online!
