Duane E. Best ★★★★★

The exercises are really very helpful to test one's knowledge and to allow one to construct a personal guide of various concepts for review.


By following the same structure as the companion text, this book of exercises and solutions tests your knowledge of Strategic Financial Management. It also develops a number of theoretical concepts outlined in the companion text as a guide to further study.

All the exercises and their solutions are easy to follow. Each chapter begins with a theoretical review of the basic issues to be examined .We then move into the real world of sophisticated, financial analysis. Each chapter also contains commentaries and a summary that provide further insight into current theory and practice, applied to the corporate investment and financial policies of today’s uncertain world.
