Format: Paperback
This book is used by my buisness school as a required textbook. It is easy to understand and there are a lot of practical columns. It should become a standard textbook in many business schools.

Adequate for the material presented 5 Feb. 2012
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for an MBA course. The material is presented in a straight-forward manner and the chapters are explained enough, however I don't know if I would recommend this book to anyone looking to teach themselves this subject, as there are surely other textbooks out there that are more dynamic for self-starters. Having a professor teaching in conjunction with this material is a must in my opinion.

*Please Note* Make SURE when ordering this book you realize that this is NOT the COMPLETE edition of this text; hence "The Core" in the title. There are around 300 extra pages in the full text (seen here: http://www.amazon.com/Corporate-Finance-MyFinanceLab-Pearson-Student/dp/0132745097/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328471461&sr=8-1).

If buying for class, make sure to check what chapters are covered in your course; if this text meets your needs, it is a great way to save some money as opposed to buying the full edition.

It's heavy, but it will get you there. 21 April 2010
By brideofmc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Corporate Finance was a snooze to read. The format from text to mathematical theory to example could have been blocked better for easier reading. The problems were helpful and illustrated the math needed. Some of the "excel" problems were using excel for a big calculator, but others were rather tricky and labor intensive. The summaries at the end of each chapter were pretty thorough. There were a lot of "current" information articles from "people in the industry", which of course are already out of date. The book could have saved the trees on that and just provided the "classic" information. Too bad it doesn't come in Kindle format.
Great Product and Service 9 Oct. 2012

I believe this book is great and very helpful if required for a class or just to learn more about corporate finance. The delivery of the book was very prompt as well and I am very happy with the transaction. Two thumbs up!
Good book but need improvement 31 Dec. 2013
By BELLA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is helpful, but need more clear example, sometimes one exercise conflicts with another and it instructs you to retrieve information from previous exercise and does not make any sense.
What a deal 19 July 2013
By matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm actually buying this book not for a specific class, but because many top 10 finance programs use this book. I got the older edition for about 10% of the cost of the current edition.
