MBA Prep Courses (Already accepted)

Post Wed Feb 06, 2013 8:26 pm
Okay, so I've already been accepted and will be attending this fall. I have a major in Economics and a minor in bus. admin. But that was more than five years ago. I am obvously rusty (even after GMAT studies). My question is... what should I do to prepare for the rigor of an MBA? I have found two different MBA online prep courses. I was wondering if any one could shed some light as to which is better (or your opinions)? Thanks.

The two are:
Essential Prep from the GMAC found here http://www.essential-prep.com/student.html
MBA math found here http://www.mbamath.com/status/admitted.htm

The main difference I can find is GMAC one is $200 and MBA Math is $150. The MBA Math is much better at explain what it has. The GMAC one is a little vague (and their demo is incredibly easy). The MBA math also has Economics, while GMAC one doesn't. MBA Math also shows you how to use spreadsheets. From this it seams that MBA Math is the better deal. You pay less and get more. Has anyone used either of these courses? What's everyone's opinion? Thanks.

Does your school offer pre work of any kind? I know some schools have an intensive 2 week program that covers things such as stats, accounting and communications. Some students are even required to take it if they are international students. Beyond that, you might want to check in with your local community college to see if they offer any summer classes that you might be able to take advantage of. Those will be great to get used to sitting in a classroom again.
