Does Ivy check his email regularly?

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.

Hey Andy,

I just bought the guide and a lot of the text in the bolded headings and footnotes are jumbled and very annoying/hard to read. I actually have the 2010 one so can I get a refund and/or an uncorrupted version?

Thanks.

Hi Minne, can you give me an example of pages? Just looked through entire PDF and nothing caught my eye. Yes, you can get a refund, just send the receipt from your 2010 purchase and she will refund you the $.

Thanks for heads up on issues...can you give me a few exmaples so I can look into it?

Interested as well. Do you have BIWS as well? If so, a brief comparison would be SB-worthy.

Patrick- Will the guide be emailed to me once my payment is processed? And how long should we expect that to take?

yes, it is e-mailed and shoudl be pretty immediate (~5 min or less)....

Payment finally authorized- will try to read the guide tonight (and maybe tomorrow) and write up a review comparing it to BIWS

Opening thoughts- and I will continue to edit this post. A bit sloppy- some repeated words etc. I like the visuals much more than anything my BIWS has. On valuation- would you ever say market valuation in an interview? This is nitpicky, but I would personally never say it, nor have I heard it discussed before as a possible answer to the 'how to value a company' question.

Black Jack, thanks for the heads up. Can you PM me where there are repeated words? page #?

Also, I think you could say mkt valuation in an interview, but it is probably best to say there are 3 primary methods, DCF, public comparables and trading comps -- if they want more you can go into LBO, mkt valuation, liquidation, etc.

Good point, we will make that more clear.

I bought both the tech and behavioural guides in 2012 and just received the 2013 guide. I cant recommend the tech guide enough to anyone if they haven't made their mind yet as to whether pay for it or not.

The combo of the 2 guides no doubt helped me nail my Rothschild internship interview and helped me get an offer

This guide would really be helpful for us fresh graduates. I definitely believe that anxiety is the hardest thing to deal with during interviews. Hope the guide would suggest some tips to deal with this anxiety!

Does the guide have an overview of industry-specific questions (FIG, natural resources, etc.)? I can't tell from the description.
