Overview

Knowing what to do with your money is more important than ever. Gitman/Joehnk/Billingsley's market-leading PERSONAL FINANCIAL PLANNING, 13E, provides students with the tools, techniques, and understanding they need to define and achieve their financial goals. The book follows a life-cycle approach—addressing financial plans, assets, credit, insurance, investment, and retirement—as individuals and families progress through life.
