Good book to come out of "to do, or not to do" MBA

I had purchased this book alongwith my GMAT official guide. Strange combination isn;t it? Well I was planning to go for GMAT, but at the same was unsure if I actually want to do MBA for one or the other reasons. However reading this book was like talking to a friend and getting honest advice;and tru… (View complete review)

An interetesting read for a budding MBA

I purchased this book two days back and just finished reading it. Contrary to some of the reviews I think this book offers quite a few informational insights into the MBA world. It covers a lot of alien topics in a very simple and unsophisticated way. I wouldn't recommened it to a non-Indian thought… (View complete review)

Hype Demystified!!!

Let me start by saying this - Sameer Kamat’s “Beyond the MBA Hype: A Guide to Understanding and Surviving B-Schools” can be rightly regarded as - “A Comprehensive Solution” for those who have a dream. Dream for a better career, Dream for a better lifestyle and …most importantly – A Dream of pursuing an MBA. This book provides brings in realistic and descriptive process of the entire life cycle of a typical MBA Aspirant who believes that MBA is the key to success.

This book starts off from the very basic question – Why go for an MBA? The answer to this question is never simple but Sameer demys

A great De-motivator in your MBA journey

Do not follow everything that is mentioned in the book. The content of the book are the author's opinion. Studying abroad is always a good option if you are getting admitted to a good b-school. I read this book and I took nearly 2 weeks to recover from the depression that the book created inside me.

Mere Hype

Couple of years back i decided to do an MBA, but was not sure of which way to take,either full time or part time. I was doing analysis about MBA programmes, then accidentally i came across this book.I was enthusiastic that i may get lot of insights about MBA programmes, but this book turned out to be a dud.This book may help freshers or people who have zero idea about MBA programmes.If you have enough time to do some research in google, then you can very well skip buying this book.
All that the book speaks is nothing but typical engineer's background and why MBA, which MBA,what MBA etc.,which

I looked Beyond the MBA HYPE!

Some background.
-> I was an MBA aspirant and gave the myriad number of exams from CAT to GMAT.
-> Rejected a top Indian college cos I got a great score on my GMAT.
-> Finally decided not to do an MBA and went ahead and started my own business (Sweet 'n' Swirl Ice Creams) ;)

The actual review:

Pro's:
-> A simple and fast read, to the point and informative.
-> In-expensive, costs as much as a coffee but definitely worth much more!
-> A go to guide before you plan on doing an MBA.
-> Basically a crash course on the why's and how's of the MBA world.

Con's:
-> Some parts of the book could have

Why MBA ? Answer the question with clarity and confidence

Here I am done with reading your book 'Beyond the MBA hype' a short, sweet and an interesting read :).

I knew about the book sometime back yet I didn't buy it for two reasons :

1.The after-effects of reading 'Managers not MBAs' by Mintzberg. Though the first part of his book was with convincing arguments, the second part does more of a promotion for his version of an MBA program. According to him, I am a wrong candidate, doing MBA at the wrong time and at the wrong place. So I thought I shouldn't read another book immediately that portrays badly the course I am pursuing.

2. I have a perc

WYSIWYG

It is usually said that one should not judge a book by its cover. But with Sameer Kamat's "Beyond the MBA Hype", what you see is what you get: A simply written, no-nonsense guide to demystifying B-schools. And as promised, a time and money saver.
For people just starting the process of appying to schools, probably the most helpful feature (and I say "feature" beacuse the book is actually a tool to be used) is the content in Appendix-D. It really helps in understanding what schools to apply to,and, if you answer the questions truthfully, can even help with deep introspection.
Overall, a must-r

MBA Myths clarified...

Firstly, a big thanks to Sameer for writing out such a wonderful book. I'll confess that I do not fancy reading books a lot & I haven't read a book completely in the last few years. But this book caught my interest from the very first chapter, due to the lively manner in which it kicks off.

Like most MBA aspirants even I had a lot of questions about schools, application process, job prospects etc. So went through many forums & blogs online, but most of them seem to talk about stuff either from the author's point of view or from a very general stand. So it doesn't help you much as each applica

A practical guide for any MBA aspirant

With a reference to Sachin on the very first page,Sameer instantly connects with his readers.He maintains this connect throughout the book by taking us through the journey of a fictional MBA aspirant 'Mitu' . Many an MBA aspirant will be able to relate to this as they would have been in similar situations.The book has a very 'Chetan Bhagat' feel to it in the way it handles the entire 'phoren MBA' process and reading the whole book is a rather enjoyable affair.

Key takeaways from the book include interesting perspectives to the reader about the entire MBA industry and some practical ideas on

What MBA 101 should be about

Me: Dude, did you read that book on MBA I gave you the other day?
Dude: Yeah, but I couldn't find any quantitative or verbal questions in it.

While the above dialogue is a work of fiction, most people would concur that "a book on MBA" has become synonymous for preparatory material for MBA entrance exams. Which is why 'Beyond the MBA Hype' by Sameer Kamat comes as a refreshing change.

The book covers all points in the value chain - the entrance preparation, the applications, the “MBA”, the placements, and finally, the jobs. It gives you a bird’s eye view of what a typical MBA journey
