This booklet provides a good overview of education in Vietnam. It commences with a description of Vietnam and a historical background of education. Then it gives a brief introduction to education at all levels and the grading system. There is a good section that provides an overview of universities, their administration, changes since 1988/89 and there is some references to MOET and its role. Although the book was published in 1993 and it is possibly a little out of date now it is a useful read for anyone wanting to gain understanding of the education system in Vietnam.
