Master the GMAT CAT, 2003/e w/CD-ROM by Arco
1.0 out of 5 stars Not Recommended, June 4 2004
The book has too much material, which mostly is useless. 592 pages of boring and exhausting suggestions that lead to nothing except somewhat improved ability to handle lengthy boring passages. Perhaps not completely bad afterall :-) The tests are too easy, esp math - I used to get the max. Makes you confident for a few minutes until Kaplan hands you your fanny with 600 written all over it. Verbal is not close to the Real GMAT. CR is screwed up - the logic does not go the right direction and several of my friends agree with me, it is not just me; SC is not focused on the style but rather on the grammar portion, which is not tested as strongly on the GMAT.
And yes, the software is not… Read more
Insider's Guide: GMAT CAT by Peterson's
Second Impression: The contents of the book look more impressive and helpful than they really are. It is deceptively full of "helpful" tips and techniques but most of them are common sense ones such as don't overwork yourself just before the test day or as silly as don't eat greasy food. It is printed on cheap recycled paper - not as bad as the one Princeton uses but nothing compared to the Kaplan's books (thought the 2003 edition of Kaplan's Guide with CD was printed on that crap too - bad choice). I personally hate recycled paper. I really do need the whiteness and cleanliness of the sheet to enjoy the book.

Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck
Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck
5.0 out of 5 stars I love Steinbeck, May 6 2004
I loved The Cannery Row and had the common feeling of joy and satisfaction after getting through a masterpiece as well as of regret that the book cannot be read again with the same satisfaction and interest. Thank goodness, there is Tortilla Flat. Very close to the sprit of the Cannery Row, it speaks about homeless guys who find a home (2 actually). Their life changes and now they are faced with the common world troubles: responsibilities, greed, and neighbours. The simple life of a homless was seems quiate attractive after you finish. Good read.
Great MBA book - good humor and story. Simplicity and simple people are always appreciated. There is more wisdom in common sense than in any… Read more
