Presenting examples that reflect corporate finance, this title includes features ranging from a computerized test bank, to a narrated PowerPoint for students, to interactive learning modules, and a web-based program that can help your students learn corporate finance by duplicating problems from each chapter in the textbook.
The best-selling "Fundamentals of Corporate Finance" ("FCF") is written with one strongly held principle that corporate finance should be developed and taught in terms of a few integrated, powerful ideas. As such, there are three basic themes that are the central focus of the book: an emphasis on intuition-underlying ideas are discussed in general terms and then by way of examples that illustrate in more concrete terms how a financial manager might proceed in a given situation; a unified valuation approach-net present value (NPV) is treated as the basic concept underlying corporate finance. Every subject covered is firmly rooted in valuation, and care is taken to explain how particular decisions have valuation effects; and a managerial focus - the authors emphasize the role of the financial manager as decision maker, and they stress the need for managerial input and judgment.The Eighth Edition continues the tradition of excellence that has earned "Fundamentals of Corporate Finance" its status as market leader. Every chapter has been updated to provide the most current examples that reflect corporate finance in today's world. The supplements package has also been updated and improved. From a new computerized test bank that is easier than ever to use, to new narrated PowerPoint for students, to new interactive learning modules, student and instructor support has never been stronger. There is also an optional, exciting new web-based program called "McGraw-Hill's Homework Manager" that will help your students learn corporate finance by duplicating problems from each chapter in the textbook and by providing automatic grading and feedback to both students and instructors.
