recommendations: corporate language/concept crash course literature

Postby chez.rj.marsh » Mon Apr 16, 2018 5:38 pm

I'm looking to generally get up to speed in the language of finance/econ/banking before 3L and in preparation for firm work—can anyone recommend a solid and approachable book that can give me that background? I obviously know the extreme basics that have come up in corporate/transactional classes, but would like to fill in the gaps so that the language and concepts are a little more second-nature to me.

I'm basically open to anything, from someone's favorite econ textbook to a wallstreet for dummies book, so long as it's helpful and someone can vouch for it. Thanks!

As a starting point, check out "Barbarians at the Gate". Start reading the Wall Street Journal as much as you can.
