The best from David Newland's first 1000 Posts Thu Dec 29, 2011 8:21 pm
In reply to the most recent post I made on Beat the GMAT - chieftang said “You're at 999 posts. I hope you have something big planned for #1000!!” Well after that I had to put something special together!

So,in celebration of my one thousandth posting on BTG I have compiled some of my best contributions to Beat the GMAT - both articles and postings. I have enjoyed writing these and I hope that you enjoy reading them.
(By the way I have several new articles coming to the front page of Beat the GMAT in the coming weeks and I look forward to making another thousand postings in 2012!)

For now, here are the postings and articles that I have chosen from my first 1000, they are listed by category.

Thanks!!!
David
