It was one of my required readings during corporate finance course at my university, I also got principles of corporate finance by Brealey, and this book is so much better. At first it may seem a bit simple and basic, because the concepts are explained in great details, but it is far above just fundamentals. It has lots of examples to make reader more acquainted with the problems. In this examples some made up companies' names are used, at first I found that funny but now I see that even this small details make reading it more enjoyable and make concepts much easier to remember. Overall great book, lots of interesting stuff and well explained.

I am bachelor student and found this book more than useful for my finance course. Good explanations, graphs and examples what made all theory easier to understand. Currency used in examples is euros, and corporations are more or less from Europe. What is more book was useful also for other courses (analytical finance, investment theory) and it seems that I will use it also in future.
It was delivered a little bit late, but otherwise no problems.
To sum up it is worth to buy it and it is good investment in studies.

Or their publishers,at any rate. While Ross et al. may present few new treasures for the advanced corporate finance practitioner, they serve up the basics in a highly readable, concise, and succinct style. As a neophyte to finance, I struggled through the turgid Brealey & Myers hash; the Ross book was a sufficient anodyne to the B&M poison. A fine field manual for the novice and intermediate student, and a good jumping off point for more advanced study. Don't trust anyone who dislikes this book---they probably get commissions from Brealey & Myers.

I am a final year medical student who interested in business and finance and found it very helpful. Although i will not use the debt and long term loan which uses interest (which is forbidden in islam), all the info about debt and interest rate etc give me idea how the money is working in current world. This book also explain the debt and loan equivalent in islamic finance which is very useful to me too :) It also explains very well about valuation and discount rate, capital structure, debt optimum level etc2..

Thank you very much to Mr David Hillier and his friends :)

This book incorporates managerial accounting and corporate finance. The standard is comparable to the corporate finance by Brealy and Myers. The book has many current examples that may help finance students.
