Anticipation...

Well I finaly decided to buy the books from the Cambridge MBA Pre-reading List, hoping I'll get a scholarship or loan. (keeping fingers and toes crossed) I figured that even if I go somewhere else there would still come in useful, and I might as well get some background info about the management & finance subjects as I have not studied any of these subjects and most of them are alien to me. Ofcourse I found Organizational behavior really intersting as I'm into psychology.

The three books I bought are below. Still haven't touched them. Let's see how it goes. Anyway since I get the Asian low price editions I only paid about one fifth of what I would have paid if I bought them from UK.

Corporate Finance and Analysis of Financial Reports
Brealey, R., Myers, S.C. and Allen, F. (2006) Corporate finance. (8th ed.) Boston, Mass.; London : Irwin McGraw-Hill

Marketing
Kotler, P. and Keller, K.L. (2006) Marketing management. (12th ed.) Upper Saddle River, N.J. : Prentice Hall/Pearson Education

Organisational Behaviour and the Management of People
Robbins, S. (2005) Organizational behavior. (11th ed./International ed.) Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall

hi there! thanks for the comment... life is what we make of it, and what we allow it to become... in that sometimes we think, "oh, I can only do this or that..."

but it sounds like you know that if there is something you want to do, you'll go for it!

Cambridge is a beautiful city, and I'm sure you will enjoy it!!!

you have a really nice blog... I'll come back... :)))

turtle guy, I think that book should be available in Canada cos it's a popular text for most MBAs around the world. Just started to go through it, so will post about intersting stuff.

catch-all term, Hope you continue blogging.

ipodmomma, I look forward to meeting you more in the blog-o-sphere.
