5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!!, 20 Feb 2010
By 
This review is from: Market Risk Analysis: Quantitative Methods in Finance, Practical Financial Econometrics, Pricing, Hedging and Trading Financial Instruments, Value-at-Risk Models (Hardcover)
My only one recommendation is
buy the whole set since they are interconnected.

it's certainly worth it.

Let me add something I also found hedging topic in vol 3 much easier
to understand than many books I've read.

5.0 out of 5 stars definitely a great collection., 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Market Risk Analysis: Quantitative Methods in Finance, Practical Financial Econometrics, Pricing, Hedging and Trading Financial Instruments, Value-at-Risk Models (Hardcover)
I'm really happy to have bought these books.
I' d started reading Poul Wilmott, and I was not happy with the poor math coming out abruptly out of the blue.
Carol Alexander books has a much more rigorous math and the subject result really easy to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really worth to read, 18 Oct 2011
This review is from: Market Risk Analysis: Quantitative Methods in Finance, Practical Financial Econometrics, Pricing, Hedging and Trading Financial Instruments, Value-at-Risk Models (Hardcover)
In fact I have never rate any book I bought, but this one has to be.

This four part work is really worth to read. It is not demanding neither easy. It is pleasure to read these books. I appreciate typeset, binding as well.

But the best thing is, that on every chapter, every paragraph and sentence everybody can see, that Carol does not want to refer about methods and problems, but she wants to teach you how to understand and solve.

Combination of theory and practical examples is very useful. Excel files are useful supplement. Because of enhancement of Excel, as a teaching environment it is the best place to start. Personally I would prefer R, but these books are not about coding analyses in particular software. They are about understanding these analyses. Author deserves every penny for it.
