Kaplan GMAT 2010: Strategies, Practice, and Review
Kaplan GMAT 2010: Strategies, Practice, and Review
by Kaplan
Edition: Paperback
Price: 12.87

1.0 out of 5 stars useless, 2 Mar 2011
It is only an introductory book. Completely worthless if you know what the GMAT is about and what it contains. Waste of money in comparison if you wikipedia/blog/google information about the GMAT. Especially because every GMAT book has an introduction and strategies (basic summary) for the section, so get verbal+math separately and it will be worth your money.


International Marketing
International Marketing
by Michael R. Czinkota
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars boring, 2 Mar 2011
Extremely heavy and fat book, too much useless information in the descriptions. The case studies are not compelling. I found it suitable if you are a highschool/ freshman undergraduate student. You can summarize a 30 page chapter in a paragraph, there is so much nonsense. Get it second hand if you have to buy it.

The book is somewhat helpful, I did not find it entertaining and easy to read, even though I have read books of higher difficulty. Lacks some information on theories

The Top Consultant: Developing Your Skills for Greater Effectiveness
by Calvert Markham
Edition: Paperback
Price: 19.48

4.0 out of 5 stars helpful, 2 Mar 2011
Easy to read and understand, it is excellent if you have absolutely no idea what is consultancy and plan to work as a consultant in the future. Otherwise, I will not recommend it, unless you are working as a consultant with an engineer background; but business related majors, do not bother an only get it if it is a second/third hand.


International Economics
International Economics

Edition: Hardcover
Price: 85.71

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent quality, 2 Mar 2011
One of the best books in international economics. Very easy to understand and suitable for undergraduates and master degree level. Easy to understand, practical exercises, etc. I am sure it will cover whatever you are looking for in the subject. Very expensive though.. You should try reading it beforehand in a library and make your decision of purchase later. I consider it a book for my personal bookshelf

Very specific book, easy to read. However, I regret having it as a kindle edition instead of a paperback, it confuses me sometimes. The authors make it extremely easy to read by going back and forward: the tell what they are going to tell you; they tell you; and then they tell you what they told you.

This review is from: Multinational Finance (Paperback)
Af all the books written in international/multinational finance, this book has been the easiest and most enjoyable to read. It is great for undergraduates.


Financial Economics: A Concise Introduction to Classical and Behavioral Finance
Financial Economics: A Concise Introduction to Classical and Behavioral Finance

This book is quite helpful, however there is much more in the field of behavioral finance (it does not cover aspects that have been demonstrated by pure experiments; only addresses those covered with mathematical backup). The book demonstrates the clashes between 2 rational (prescriptive) models with the irrational (descriptive) model proposed from behavioral finance (mainly prospect theory and cumulative prospect theory). Later it introduces modifications on other theories developed from the clash. I will not recommend this book unless you are pursuing a doctorate. NOT suitable for undergraduates; I doubt you will have the mathematical background to understand the high level of quants and theorems proposed in this book.
