Pre-MBA Brush Up Classes [#permalink] New post 31 Mar 2011, 12:28
Hey folks,

I am coming from a government (read: not at all quant) job, where I have been for five years. I haven't done math or accounting classes in about seven years, so I'm a little concerned about being too rusty for the first day of school.

For people who were in the same position, or are in that position right now, what did you do? The welcome binder for my new school suggested going to mbamath.com for $150. But I wonder if that's a good program and/or worth it. I have looked around iTunesU and MIT Open Courseware for some classes but some subjects are a bit sparse on there.

Anybody have thoughts/suggestions/opinions about all this?

Thanks!

I did the mbamath.com course, I did it because my quant percent on the GMAT was so low so I wanted to add this in with my application to show I was prepared for the classes. Although I did it after applying and only ended up sending the transcript to Kellogg, oh well :roll:

I have a marketing job now, but not too quant heavy and I definitely feel it helped me. The content wasn't too detailed and I don't feel I got a full understanding of some of the concepts, but I feel much more prepared now. I had seen all those terms and formulas before as an undergrad but never had to use them and I felt this was a sufficient refresher to at least explain the basics and tach you when to use each formula with some examples you'll find in your coursework. There were additional appendix sections that explained more of the math, but I skipped these since they said it went beyond the scope of what you will have to know and more just for curiosity. You get a year subscription, so I plan on reviewing the topics again before school starts. I did kind of rush through it a bit just to get it done so I could still submit the transcript to the school in time before they made a decision on my application.
