Don't panic! The Essential Revision ... in a Hurry series provides you with outlines of the key topics you'll need to know to successfully pass your exams.

Corporate Finance covers key topics in this area with a step-by-step introduction to the most commonly examined principles. Throughout the book, there are tests and practice examples that ensure that you have a clear understanding of the material and are able to put the theory you have learned into practice.

The book is split into three main sections:

  • Investments
  • Risk and risk management
  • Long-term financing
Each section is broken down into short, manageable chunks that clearly explore core areas within the sections as well as show how they fit into the bigger picture.

Written primarily for undergraduates and postgraduates on their first courses in Corporate Finance, the book will also be of use to those taking professional exams or as a refresher for students taking higher level courses that include an element of corporate finance.
