It also discusses the following which I found very helpful:
Valuing various types of bonds,
and a number of other interesting topics.
I highly recommend this book for MBA students (both specialists and generalists). It is in depth enough to provide excellent instruction. My only addition to it would be to add some cases that encompass the information and a practical way. I didn't use the smart finance card at all. Although not necessary, case study analysis would be very helpful with the use of this textbook.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
One thing I liked about this book is its flow. This book starts with a brief but very helpful review of basic finance concepts, such as time value of money, and moves on to valuation methods, followed by more in-depth discussions of topics like capital budgeting, capital structure, long-term and short-term financing, options and derivatives, and etc. The organization of its content makes it very easy to follow.
Another thing that I like about this book is the way it's written. As I can attest from my classroom experience, Prof. Smart has the amazing capability to explain complicated concepts in simple languages. This book is so easy to read that you might suspect that its content is too simple. It's not! This book explains important finance concepts in a way that is easy to understand, the way a textbook is supposed to do, and sometimes with humor.
Some additional benefits that come with this book are its online contents. My favorite is Smart Concepts, which are animated slide shows of key concepts for each chapter.
Although I liked this book, it is not without any drawback. We found several errors in the text and exercise problems. However, these errors are minor and not significant enough for me to lower the rating for this book.
Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.
