Introductory Financial Economics with Spreadsheets combines the teaching and explanation of spreadsheets with the essentials of finance and economics in a highly visual, interactive, and project-based approach. Students progressively build skills in today's leading spreadsheet, Microsoft Excel 97, by proceeding through a variety of basic applications. Although Microsoft Excel 97 is used as the demonstrative spreadsheet, users of other spreadsheets will benefit equally from the book. This innovative publication includes an accompanying disk that provides the spreadsheet files on which the text is based and the data for the exercises and assignments following each chapter.
"I don't know of any other text which manages to splice a thorough grounding of the underlying theory with a gradual introduction to all spreadsheet tools needed to enable students to rapidly move to a 'learning by doing' state."
