Good book for MBA aspirants

Sameer Kamat has written a very good book which will help any MBA aspirant. At the beginning like many others I was also confused how to go about this MBA thing. While MBA in India is well known through CAT route, MBA outside is not so well known. Sameer's book helps to explain what all one can do, … (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

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

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

Good Insight

Its a good read for MBA aspirants. Most of us don't know what we are getting into, when applying for an MBA. This book paints a clear picture. A large part of this book is based on GMAT preparation. THe different MBA streams are explained in a simple yet informative manner.

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

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

Excellent Guide for prospective MBAs

This book is an excellent guide for anyone who is thinking about an International MBA. It is very insightful and more importantly honest about everything associated with an international MBA. Despite the fact that the author himself can be identified as a stakeholder in the MBA industry, he has refrained from presenting an over-optimistic view about what a international MBA means for an individual. Whether you are confused about when, how and why to apply to b-schools or about what you can expect post-MBA in terms of your career, this book should go a long way to guide you in the right directi
