Connect 1 Semester Access Card for Fundamentals of Corporate Finance Reviews
While this is a classic book for learning corporate finance in business schools, it has many problems. The main issue is that the book is very poorly written. While professionals and academics in many other fields have advanced the art of plain English writing in the last decades, business school professors and students are lagging thousands of miles behind. It was tiresome to read the text and to find clear explanations and answers while trying to learn the material.
This is by no means a good introduction book to finance which is why I bought it. Granted my review is ten years late, it may serve well to warn about future editions. I have a shallow understanding of a broad amount of business topics and have taken the requisite accounting and economics classes in your typical undergrad but from the very beginning this book is discouraging. I will also say that I'm trying to read it plainly without engaging in any of the math and formulas presented. Even so, it is some math that should be able to be glanced at and understood easily but is not. Terms are given brief explanations and loosely defined then used liberally throughout. A total mess and should be avoided if it is even among the tenth book on general finance you've read so far. I will credit it that it is dense and that is why I bought it because since it is an older edition it is selling a vault of information at a steeply discounted price yet what's the value if you spend hours reading it only to end up scratching your head in confusion, frustration, and disappointment?
Be careful with this book, as it is the Indian Edition, but the product description doesn't indicate that. This means that it is an adapted version of the book for the Indian market.
Yes, you will learn finance principles and concepts. No you will not learn them in a clear and concise manner [ok, at least it was not the case for me]. The end of chapter questions seemed to touch on the concepts contained within the context of the chapter, however for me, this was a very challenging and difficult book to use and often had to seek outside resources to answer questions within the end of chapter reviews.
I bought this textbook for my corporate finance class. If given a choice, I would not have purchased this textbook. My main problem with this text is that the chapters do not set the foundation for the student to be able to adequately approach the homework problems. Usually, students rely on the teaching examples to tackle the homework problems, and in most instances, I seldom am able to correlate my reading and the examples and apply it to the homework problems. Since I am taking this finance course through an online university, it's difficult to get the kind of one-on-one teacher support that I would need to have someone walk me through a homework problem. If you're looking for a general overview of corporate finance, this text might be helpful. If you're looking to get an in-depth understanding and you're currently enrolled in a course, this text will frustrate you.
Terrible book that only the authors probably understand what they are writing about. There are no clear examples that show you how to understand the material, they build on some perceived knowledge you are supposed to have on the subject...i had ti supplement the reading with google serches.
This is one of the better finance texts I've come across. It still is a finance text though, so I can't really say that it's in any way enjoyable.
Book came in perfect condition very happy with it..
