About the Author
More About the Author
After university Brandon enjoyed spending most of his energy in the high-tech industry working with passionate artists and intelligent engineers. However, in the cold San Francisco February of 2005, he decided to leave and pursue new opportunities in the world of business just one month before the deadline for all the business schools he wanted to apply. With so much to study for the GMAT, and not much time, he developed a unique way to study that enabled him to score 780 (99 percentile) on the GMAT within a short amount of time. He received his MBA from Marshall School of Business (University of Southern California) with a scholarship.
After business school, Brandon worked as a Manager in the strategy division at the Sony headquarters in Tokyo where he spent much of his time with top executives from all over the world incubating new ideas and analyzing existing businesses. While at Sony Brandon was featured on Sony's global website as a success story of Sony's MBA Program. 30 DAY GMAT SUCCESS was written during these years in Japan. Everyday after work, Brandon would find a quiet coffee shop, and write down the journey he took while preparing for the GMAT hoping that his experience would one day benefit others who are in the similar dire situation he once was with just one month left to prepare for the GMAT.
Brandon left Sony in 2010 to follow his entrepreneurial heart and start two businesses. He now lives in sunny Seattle with his amazing wife.

There. I just saved you $30.
Adjusting yourself to"GMAT Mode" is not an easy task, and it requires strong persistency. This will depend on you, but the book tries to keep you motivated with the author's personal experience, and a section focused entirely on health and motivation for test takers.
There are also verbal and math sections analyzing different types of questions you might find on the test. The math section, which lists out all question types on the test, is especially helpful for people who need extra help with math.
I found this book an interesting and practical GMAT tool book and motivational book. You will find yourself wanting to keep reading once you start! I recommend this book to people with a dream to go to business school but without all the time in the world.
In addition, besides providing the technical skills and strategies, the author understands that this is also a mental challenge for the test takers. As a result, the author provides some other additional guidance and tips to help candidates. You can really tell that the author puts his heart and soul in it!!!
It provides structured, technical guidance on how to correctly answer GMAT questions in the least amount of time possible as well as a structured study plan to improve your test-taking skills.
Used in conjunction with the official study guides and practice software, anyone should be able to attain their desired score. I highly recommend this book to anyone regardless of when you plan to take the actual test.
I didn't have the time to use this book at all but from scanning through it I thought that the instructions in the Kaplan were better and more useful. If you really only have a month then you probably won't have time to use this book.
By the way, I ended up getting a 650 on the test, which is good enough for the schools I'd want to get in. I was so bad at all the sections but learned how to do them in Kaplan. I probably would've got less than a 500 if I hadn't studied.
