ok, but... 15 Jan. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
i think that the guide that came with my book, which shows pictures of the slides that professors are supposed to use was completely usless, if you have to purchase this book for a class, try and get a used copy. It is not worth the price you have to pay. There is another book by Breyli and Meyers titles Corporate Finance which is much more comprehensive and much better.

Not sure why someone rated it poorly 1 Jun. 2007
By C. Dye - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I'm an MBA student with quite a number of courses finished. I'm over half way through the finance course that uses this book and have found it to be written very well. The example problems are great, and the explanations are thorough. Our professor did make available the answers to the questions at the back of the book and used the powerpoints developed by the author. All in all the only drawback I could find was cost (as usual with college texts). As a side note, several students did use the 4th edition in our class with the permission of the instructor and did just fine.

Horrible Book 9 Oct. 2006
By Kenneth Yu - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The only great thing about this book is its small size and thats about it. The text doesn't do a very good job of explaining the ideas and concepts. Say you are given certain parts of an equation it doesn't really show you how to use to components to solve for the right number. Instead it gives you a wonderful GENERAL overview of an idea that is minimal in explanation. I'm almost at the point of flipping out because the lack of explanations and I'm only on Chapter 2.

a sorry college level text book 6 Nov. 2006
By Christopher W. Rainey - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is required for a Finance course. This is one of the worst college level textbooks I have ever been exposed to. I am taking this course as a requirement for a 3rd college degree so I have bought a few textbooks.

There are answers to every other problem and not one explanation as to how the answer was derived. Oh wait!!!, you can buy the accompanying student workbook and there are some semi-explanations there.

If this book is intended to be a teaching tool it has failed. The authors deserve an F and should reconsider themselves as "professors" or educators.

My university will hear about this total waste of money.

Authors (of this book), educators and others: feel free to contact me and I will elaborate. I will also offer suggestions and solutions to better present the material where this textbook fails. [...]

One of my best deals on text books 12 Oct. 2012
By William J. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is the same as the regular book but just the numbering of the pages are different. This a great buy for the price and for the information contained inside this book. If you have problems finding were you are in the book compared to the your class mates just use the example number which is the same for both books. I used this book for class and had no problems except for the number page deal(which was not a big deal.)
