Good Text but the example vs. problems difficulty disparity is HUGE So, I’ve taken 2 classes using this textbook and run into the same problem with both classes and the textbook. (Note: the two teachers had very different approaches to using the text and so I waited to write the review to see if it changed my opinion). Regardless of how heavily the teacher relied on the text for the foundation of their lectures or how much work we did that mirrored the problems for the homework, ultimately when the homework problems came the examples in the text of each…

ehhh not great, and not worth all the money! The books says “this can be done on excel” WELL SHOW ME HOW TO DO IT.

There were like three times that they showed how to do something on excel or gave the formula. I wish my prof had picked another book. To be honest, I do not know many other finance books but this one is not good.

Super Helpful Textbook! This was a great text book! It’s one of the few I kept after the class was over as a reference book as opposed to selling it. It covered the gamut of investing but broke things down in a digestible way that was extremely helpful in a super high speed class like the one I was in. Bonus: there’s a workbook with test question that you can use to help prepare for quizzes. Some professors base the quizzes on the actual workbook.
