That solution manual to the 8th edition is great so as to practice exercises, the only way to understand the concept.
But tell Joe Smolira of Belmont University, who prepared that manual, that it is just unacceptable to make so many mistakes in a solution manual. What's the point of having the solution if is does not take the correct figures of the problem, changes rates, time length... That's a scandal! It really semms that too many solutions have not been updated since the last edition... Please Mr. Smolira, get an assistant to check your answer :-)
Could also be more explicit in the solutions. For instance, don't count on that solution manual to explain you logarithm, even if it's required to solve the problem.
Lastly, as one reader said, solutions to emblematic problems should be included in the textbook 'Corporate Finance'(and not these 'solutions to end of chapter selected problems' which do not explain anything but gives only the final result). It could be done in few pages more than what it takes currently and would be highly helpful.
