Quite a good book, it introduces the material well with a structured, progressive approach with a great deal of practice questions. There are a few minor errors in the kindle version but you should able able to pick them up if you pay attention. I also feel that this book sets out mathematical proofs very well which helps aid understanding of the material. One small negative that it seems to have in common with other financial maths books is that it covers variable annuities quite briefly. All in all though it is a very good book and very good value so I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn the fundamentals of financial maths- I am an interested layperson ad this book has been quite helpful

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Reference and a Self-Study Guide 11 July 2006
By David De Sousa - Published on
As with most of the books from the Schaum's Outline collection, this book comprises the fundamentals so it can be used as a supplement to standard textbooks in class, as a stand-alone study aid, or as a reference for the professional practitioner.

My academic background is in Electronics Engineering, so I really didn't take any courses on finances back in College. When my work forced me to gain knowledge in the area of Financial Math I turned to this book as a self study guide. The text is clear, has a lot of worked problems and examples, and it did its job: Gave me the knowledge I needed.

No wonder that this is actually the Very best-selling book of the whole Schaum's Outline collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value 18 Oct 2002
By Antonios Giannakas - Published on
The target audience of this book is people who want to know how to estimate annuities, life insuarance premiums etc. If you are sitting the actuarial exam(SOA) 2 this is what you need for the Theory of Interest part. It also covers parts of exam 3. The book is affordable and way better than any other else. The methodology is crystal clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD BOOK ALSO FOR BUSINESS PEOPLE 3 Feb 2007
By D'ippolito Pasquale - Published on
I am a manager, and sometimes I listen to financial managers without being deeply involved in their technical language. After reading and practicing this book , I am able to use my skills more proactively working with them.
