The Visual MBA Book Description :

Jason Barron spent 516 hours in class, completed mountains of homework and shelled out tens of thousands of dollars to complete his MBA at the BYU Marriott School of Business.

Whether you are thinking about applying to business school, are cur...

To make matters worse, the early hours of prac­ticing something new are always the most frustrating.
