Fundamentals of Corporate Finance book reviews

Fundamentals of Corporate Finance book review by Cameron D.

Great book with good example that helps me understand the material for Intro to Finance class better but some stuff in the book could use some work. If your teacher requires this book I would recommend getting it because it breaks things down really well.

Fundamentals of Corporate Finance book review by Aaron B.

This is easily one the best textbooks I have read, and it's certainly THE BEST finance textbook I've ever read (of at lease three). There have been some absolutely horrible textbooks I've had to wade through for classes, but this is written in comprehensible english. Not only does it covers the topics and adequately explain they, but it also explains formulas, such as the varius "Free Cash Flow" s. The subjects are well organised and complete.

Fundamentals of Corporate Finance book review by IA Electric

This book is very well written. It provides a thorough understanding of corporate finance and includes a number of advanced topics after a solid foundation in financial management and accounting. The layout of the book is also well organized. However, I did find the introduction to the chapters rather dry.

Fundamentals of Corporate Finance book review by nooral huda albahiesh

This book is written really well. Its really breaks down concepts in an easy to understand way. I need this one fo 2 courses and its really good with examples. Although the old version is exactly the same except for the exercises.

Fundamentals of Corporate Finance book review by Homeowner

I was really excited about purchasing this textbook. I love how the author gives you the full solution to every single question. I also love how the author includes a Solutions Key so you can check your work. Unfortunately, I was disappointed when I opened the book and saw that there were only six questions given in the Solutions Key. That means that I would have to spend an additional 40 minutes trying to figure out why I didn't get the correct answer. I'm not sure if I should return the book or just chalk it up to experience.
