I am using this outline by Francis & Taylor to re-teach myself the principles of investments (which I have already forgotten about since my days in college!!!). The authors provide a good review of the material. However, I have found that many of the self-test problems and questions are based on subjects that aren't even discussed in this guide, which makes it very frustrating to review the material. As I mentioned in the title, I would recommend this outline ONLY as a supplimental text. For practice problems, stick with ones that are offered in a regular investment text book, and NOT the ones in this guide.
