ForumWatch: Books to Aid in Admissions

Posted by: Louis Lavelle on January 10, 2012

There are many places to go for help when applying to business schools. One of the quickest and easiest sources of admissions advice - not to mention most affordable - is a book. But knowing which ones to pick up can be overwhelming. Which are reliable and right for the applicant? It’s hard to know.

That’s why applicants often ask about them on the Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forums. In fact, recently, Admit333 pointedly asked the question, “What books are you reading to prepare for applications?” Readers, as well as authors of some of the books, chimed in with suggestions. The discussion is still open, so more responses may come - and you’re welcome to share your own favorite titles. To participate in the conversation, visit the “Best Books to Read when Applying” discussion thread.
