    Excellent, it really guides you

    This book is amazing, it really describe the framework of getting into a top MBA program. Very detail, easy to read, and very didactic. The part I like it the most in the objective, unique, and thorough information the book has about the different schools. This is the perfect book is you are undecided to what top schools to apply or if you want to know how to meet the demands of the specific school you want to go. The book does not have any information about financing your MBA.

    A Complete Guide to Getting In

    I am in the middle of applying to half a dozen top schools right now, and this book has been a tremedous help. I especially recommend the sections on interview prep, getting good recommendations, and coming up with a unique application story. Also good advice on why you might or might not want to hire an admissions consultant. The information & advice on specific schools is helpful, too. And I found it much easier to read than some of the other MBA admissions books that I have bought.
