i think that the guide that came with my book, which shows pictures of the slides that professors are supposed to use was completely usless, if you have to purchase this book for a class, try and get a used copy. It is not worth the price you have to pay. There is another book by Breyli and Meyers titles Corporate Finance which is much more comprehensive and much better.

If your class requires connect plus with this textbook, save yourself money and look somewhere else for a more affordable price.

I would rate this higher than two stars if the the book had connect +, unfortunately it does not. My professor requires me to have the connect access code for homework, and I would imagine many professors who request this book would as well.

I paid $167 for an incomplete book? Now I have to pay $50 separately for connect + to "complete" my purchase?

Why did this seller not indicate that this book does not have connect plus? If it's stated as brand new, I would guess that most people looking at this page description, seeing "new" and clicking "order" will be surprised to receive the book without connect +. Especially for that price. Jeez I'm already a broke student to begin with!

The only great thing about this book is its small size and thats about it. The text doesn't do a very good job of explaining the ideas and concepts. Say you are given certain parts of an equation it doesn't really show you how to use to components to solve for the right number. Instead it gives you a wonderful GENERAL overview of an idea that is minimal in explanation. I'm almost at the point of flipping out because the lack of explanations and I'm only on Chapter 2.

Besides not having the connect software even though it says brand new book, another interesting find is that none, I repeat none, of the Learning Objective notes along the side of the questions and problems actually correlate with the correct LO. For instance problem 3 in chapter 2 might say this is from learning object 4, but really its learning objective 3 material... sometimes rather unfortunate when you need to refer back to the chapter.

I'm an MBA student with quite a number of courses finished. I'm over half way through the finance course that uses this book and have found it to be written very well. The example problems are great, and the explanations are thorough. Our professor did make available the answers to the questions at the back of the book and used the powerpoints developed by the author. All in all the only drawback I could find was cost (as usual with college texts). As a side note, several students did use the 4th edition in our class with the permission of the instructor and did just fine.

This book was for my business finance class but it wasn't really required too much. My professor did pick out some problems to practice that were pretty helpful for exams. I'm not a finance major but I did go through the chapters to help study for exams and I ended with an A in the class and having talked to my professor, was good as the average for the class was lower than he wanted. Not that interesting to me but did help me for what I needed for the class when it came to working through the formulas or using the financial calculator.

Fast shipping and I received exactly what I purchased. My only complaint is that the book did not come with a code to access the online associated website
