About The Book


A First Course in Finance is the first tutorial, back-to-basics, conversational, and reasonably short approach to teaching an introductory
finance course. It uses simple, numerical examples to explain all essential concepts (and formulas) of finance. The text can be used either as a standalone course text, or as a complement to a traditional
Finance textbook. Early student responses have been very positive
in both situations.

Although suitable for self-study, this book was developed primarily


to complement classroom teaching, either at the undergraduate or
graduate level. It is geared towards a very dense 1-semester course
or a more relaxed 2-quarter sequence.
