5.0 out of 5 stars Another great work, 19 Sep 2011
Another excellent resource for anyone looking to advance their skills in excel. The DVD (download) is simply superb! After sitting through several other videos & books claiming to be advance work in excel 'made easy' and not understanding much, a friend recommended this book. I have enjoyed it and mastered some valuable skills. Great work, Mike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 19 Sep 2011
Wonderful! This is what you need if you learned excel on your own or just for the course work or you learned only the key functions required in your job. Get the dvd as well if you want an expert to teach you at your own pace. If you want to master excel, then this is also the perfect springboard for the fundamentals before any advance study (for which you need Mike's Expert Skills).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Simple Thank you to Prof Neftci, 12 April 2009
I wasn't very sure what to expect when I first read the content page on amazon.co.uk. In fact, one reviewer made things very difficult for me when he/she rated the book as "very dissapointing" and that it was written by a mad professor totally out of touch with the requirments of sophisticated market practioners for good 'how to' tools for quant finance.

Well, this is a very perfect book for people looking for basics underlying the maths in financial engineering. I have tried about 5 books. Each I suppose has its merits but did not satisfy my need. Neftci's has so far given me the satisfaction others have failed to.

If you are interested in understanding the underlying concepts of mathematical finance (avoid the misconceptions) and not just 'know the maths', then try this book. In fact, it (even) makes the maths easier afterwards.
Thank you prof Neftci.
