Excellent intro to Investment theory 16 décembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I studied the entire book for my Investment Management course at Stellenbosch University in South Africa and found it very complete from the point of view of the "novice" investor and/or student. The book is not written for the intermediate or expert investor, but for an introductory course in Investment management it did the trick.

Essentials of Investments 29 décembre 1999
Par sheryl cohen - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a clearly written book with excellent visual aids. I especially liked the concept checks and the current events boxes. The sample questions from CFA exams were particularly helpful. On whole the book does an exceptional job of explaining difficult subject matter. I'd even recommend this book to the 'lay' reader.

Very hard to read 11 février 2003
Par Jack - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is widely used in finance courses in my university, a puzzling fact because books should rarely sell if they're hard to read. The bookfs authors introduce a broad array of investment theories and discoveries. Thatfs a plus. But their wordy sentences, which grow wordier and harder to follow as they delve into each chapterfs key concepts, offset the plus. The authorsf inconsistent use of terminology is another drawback. As I move on to later chapters, I feel as if the authors were growing more verbose. That benefits no readers, given the later chapters discussing higher-level concepts.
When they revise this book for the next edition, they should hire proofreaders, journalists if possible. They care about readers and can help rewrite the entire book into a readable piece that helps students instead of confusing them.

Grueling Read 12 juillet 2009
Par Ryan Stutzman - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The authors make even the interesting areas of finance unimaginably dull with long, confusing sentences and few real world examples. I also think the textbook is setting students up for failure by presenting formulas without enough discussion of the assumptions going into those formulas. All in all, it's a text by academics for academics.

Also, one of the authors is said to have "spent two years at Fredie Mac, where he helped to develop MORTGAGE PRICING and CREDIT RISK MODELS."

Great Book for Students. 18 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I am a student and used this book for my Invesment Analysis class. The text reads well. However, it is confusing in some spots, particularly the word explanations of the equations. (i.e. Put-Call Parity Theorm) However, it covers everything under the sun and has a up to date feel about it. I highly recommend this book to up and coming investors. Professionals do not need to read this book.
