The Solutions Manual is a Must Have! 28 Feb. 2009
By textbook junkie - Published on
Format: Paperback
I purchased this item a couple weeks into my Finance course, as I was not satisfied by the answers the book Corporate Finance: Core Applications and Principles w/SAndP bind-in card (McGraw-Hill/Irwin Series in Finance, Insurance and Real Estate) had in the back (a very small % to the number of problems, just listing the final answer, and on top of that many answers were wrong). Also, my professor refused to make available the solutions to the problems outside of those assigned, and for the assigned problems we only received those after the homework was due. This manual was a lifesaver, as it provides answers to all of the end of chapter problems. In addition, it provides step by step instructions on how to arrive at the final answer and includes detailed explanations of the more complicated problems. Being that Finance is a discipline that requires doing many problems in order to completely understand the subject matter, this manual helped me do the extra work necessary to obtain an exceptional grade. I would tell anyone who is assigned the Corporate Finance textbook for a class that the Solutions Manual is a Necessity!

This solutions book is a great supplement to go with the main text Corporate Finance. 29 Mar. 2010
By J. Gutzman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this resource extremely useful in helping me understand the textbook material in Corporate Finance. I would have been lost without it. The cost is reasonable and the value in return is huge. All of the solutions and explanations to the chapter questions in the book are covered. I agree with the other post, this is "must have" resource.

Inadequate Answers 21 Oct. 2010
By J. Gibbons - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Many of the answers are "abridged" if an Excel calculation was used. When taking a Finance class with a calculator, the information provided is insufficient when trying to understanding where the numbers are coming from. I somewhat regret the purchase due to the frequent lack of usefulness in the answers. If I am able to figure out how to correctly approach a problem, I am able to at least check my final answer to the answer in the guide.
