THE COMPLETE BUSINESS AWARENESS GUIDE
BY RAVI HANDA & AVINASH MAURYA
An online order on flipkart and 2 days later i had in my hand a copy of BIZ WORLD. The cover very aptly describes the purpose of the book which is to simplify the entire global business scene and have it on your fingertips.
The book is divided into four parts covering trivia on various major global and Indian companies, etymologies, business terminology, various MCQ or funda questions and compiled tables.
Competition exams have induced trichotillomania attacks ,caffeine addiction and highly stressful cramming sessions at one point in all our lives where one fact, one answer, one arbitrary bit can mean the difference between making it or breaking it. This book might just be your edge over everyone else.
It’s a handy compilation and a great reference filled with quirky facts and anecdotes making things easier to remember and for once you can stop praying for a photographic memory.
Like many other things wrong with our Indian education system one of the major setbacks is the lack of any attention to GK which ironically is the deciding factor in almost all competitive exams and the basis for quizzing. The authors realise that for those of you like me GK can be a nightmare dull and boring but it was a pleasant surprise how BIZ WORLD made it a fun learning experience with wit and charm.
Already a success among many students and quizzers all over india this book has a lot to offer in terms of not only knowledge but fun facts like how the Volkswagen beetle was actually a brainchild of Adolf Hitler or how Oreo cookies are the bestselling cookies of the 20th century.
For 150 rs and 308 pages it’s a nuclear bomb even easy on the eyes if compared to those bulky GK books available in the market that cost 6 times but demotivate you before you even get started.
Its light, its crisp but most importantly well organised and to the point. So order now and let it biz your world.
