corporate finance supplement

Postby somewhatwayward » Fri Nov 23, 2012 2:46 pm

Does anybody have a recommendation for a good corp finance supplement? I am asking for someone else so I don't know much about the class. The topics covered are: cash flow analysis, valuation of assets and projects by alternative methods, the Capital Asset Pricing Model and its applications, the Arbitrage Pricing Theories, the Efficient Market Hypothesis, dividend and debt policy (Miller-Modigliani), and Option Pricing. They use a business school text and there is math involved.

It is a closed book test and they have to memorize all these mathematical formulas, so a supplement won't help much with that obviously. But something that gives relatively short explanations of the things in the list above would be helpful.

Eh... I think corporate finance does not lend itself to easy supplement use. Go to investopedia if you need definition of CAPM or something like that, but really this is more like a math class, and just requires a ton of practice and "getting it." Sorry if I could not be more helpful.... Btw, which business book are you using?

If you're actually doing math, get an undergrad textbook on corporate finance. Seriously. My wife spent days trying to understand the dogshit written in her "accounting and finance for lawyers" textbook. When I gave her my textbooks from accounting 101 and finance 101, everything made sense.

Also, do you have access to excel or a financial calculator for the exam? If so, these calculations can be done in seconds.
