Very productive approach in learning finance by heart,
This review is from: Financial Market Analytics (Hardcover)
This excellent and practical book on quantitative finance has brought a new perspective in learning the subject by heart. It is pretty much differently productive way in capturing the subject by categorizing the lessons in term of relevant mathematical tools, instead of conventionally by particular financial topics.
It just prepares the reader sufficiently to meet the mathematical understanding of each particular financial materials by incorporating the related examples, very practical though, that utilizes each quantitative tool for that associated chapter.
One caveat to keep is that, the content is very concise, to the point and sufficient still, and leaves no room for overly explaination, if you need one. It will be, as the author regularly suggests, a very excellent supplement reading with your main finance text, whatever subject it is you are learning. It could also be conveniently kept as the handbook or quick refresher for practitioners, who needs to brighten up the basic concept in finance.
One last thing to add, the book is quite basic and should be fully benefited and most valuable to the learner who only requires the material of early stage in learning finance seriously or want to study it in more quantitatively oriented fashion. It would be deemed suitable, or at the equivalent level to, for the person attending college with major in business or finance up to and including MBA (Finance / Economics), especially the one who plans to go beyond the master level.
