Overview

Focuses on personal finance topics, such as saving and investing, as well as asset valuation. Provides spreadsheet modeling exercises in the accompanying Prentice Hall Finance Center CD. MARKET: Ideal for executives or for anyone seeking a solid understanding and overview of the field of finance.
