Hello All,

I have posted this for Hjort, but would like to get input from Others also, hence the duplicate post.

I have been a silent observer of this forum since last few months as I was thinking about GMAT since a long time, but could never get enough time and motivation to study. Now when I am motivated and bit free, I have finally joined this forum and I request inputs from you all on colleges I should aim at and GMAT study material which will be enough for me to study –

About me in brief:
6 years IT experience – 3 years of Overseas experience – Based in UK now
Working as Independent Business Intelligence Consultant and have started a small company in same direction, but haven’t accomplished much. I am already earning enough, so money is not the only motivation for me to go for MBA. I wish to go for it so that I can expand my network and enhance my capabilities to make my company successful. I think MBA will also help me in career progression.
From my initial analysis and study of GMAT – I feel confident about Quant (PS) but my main worry is Sentence Correction, as I am a non native English speaker.
I have done all my education in English and my educational qualification is – Mechanical Engineer with 75 % - Distinction – not sure how it converts to GPA
I will be interested mostly in 1 year programmes so that I can quickly get back to work, hence my main focus is INSEAD, IMD and ISB, but in addition I am also looking for LBS, Kellogg’s ( not sure what else I should add, still deciding on it)
I am aiming for something which has more focus on Consulting, Marketing, Entrepreneurship

At present I have got the following study materials with me:
OG 10th and 11th Edition
•Manhattan Verbal ( Sentence Correction, CR and RC)
Kaplan Tests
•Princeton Tests
•Some additional notes I collected from other friends and this forum
•1000 Question bank for SC, RC, CR, PS and DS

My main questions are:
•What kind of recommendations I should start thinking about?
•Are the colleges selected by me, suitable for me or shall I include some more – may be some which are not ultra elites or elites
•Being based in UK – is it wise to shift to US – considering the recent H1B visa stories
•Definitely about the study materials

I am sorry for too many questions but want to be very clear before I invest my time and effort.

This Forum is really great and I wish I can contribute in some way.

Many Thanks!

You mentioned Entrepreneurship and 1 year program. In the UK you could look at Imperial College London - the course focuses on Entrepreneurship/Innovation.

With your experience, you should be ok, as long as you get over the average GMAT score, which is about 640.

There are schools in the US that focus on Entrepreneurship but the courses tend to last longer than 1 year, maybe someone else can comment on the US schools.
