McGraw-Hill’s GMAT (2008 Edition)
McGraw-Hill’s GMAT presents information tailored to those test takers who are hoping for a high score—a score in the mid-600s or higher that will open the doors to the top business schools. While this book presents information on the entire range of subjects and difficulty levels encountered in GMAT questions, we have placed special emphasis on addressing the more difficult question types that high-scoring test takers are more likely to see, such as combinatorics, Boolean mathematics, and parallel reasoning questions. We have observed that the majority of GMAT books on the market today are engineered to provide a medium-sized bump to a medium-range score, and they just don’t get around to addressing the more difficult topics. This book seeks to help applicants develop a competitive edge in their quest to enter the most competitive business schools.Download here

American Ways - A Guide for Foreigners in US
In American Ways, Gary Althen succeeds in making American culture understandable to both foreigners and new Americans who are not familiar with their new culture. While cautioning his readers that his views should not be regarded as foregone conclusions about all Americans, Althen nevertheless provides an outline of the general trends of behaviour of white, middle-class Americans, and follows this with excellent explanations as to why these Americans tend to behave as they do. Althen is quick to acknowledge that all Americans are not white and middle-class, but points out that since that category [has] held the large majority of the countrys most influential positions (p. xiii) for some time now, it is they who have forged the main ideals of present-day American society. This book addresses and explains those ideals.Download here
