Purpose of the Book Financial Analysis with Microsoft Excel, 6th ed. This allows many students to see the material in a way with which they are familiar. For students just beginning their education in finance, the book provides a thorough explanation of all of the concepts.

I bought Microsoft Office Excel 2007: Data Analysis and Business Modeling Wayne L. Winston together with the above. This book is not a very comprehensive book, very poor explanations and not a book that is easy to understand. Financial analysis itself is not hard, this book is more suitable for those who use Excel on a daily basis. I had a few financial industry experts even tell me the book was rather difficult to understand for them.

You learn MS Excel and Financial Analysis at the same time. You can learn (by doing) the construction of financial statements & cash budgets. This book got me a very comfortable start with spreadsheets, and it is interesting to experience how effective it is in combining spreadsheet proficiency with finance proficiency, as the author intends.

What is missing from this book is Cd-rom containing all excel illustrations and questions used in this book.

This is the text for the FIN 4200 class taught by Dr. Mayes at Metro State College in Denver. When he wrote it he was frustrated with the lack of material available to teach under-grads what they needed to get employment in the business world or do more advanced work in grad school.

Having survived Dr. Mayes' class I can say this book is an Excellent text for learning practical advanced spreadsheet techniques. It is NOT a replacement for a corporate finance text, doesn't represent itself as that, and the chapters are actually laid out to parallel Brigham's Intermediate Financial Management text which is the text used in corp finance at Metro.

Each chapter represents approximately one week's topic, and it is necessary to do the problems at the end of each chapter to develop the skill needed to achieve his purpose. He also has all kinds of useful Excel type stuff on his website at ([...]%7Emayest)

This is an excellent self-study book. You learn MS Excel and Financial Analysis at the same time. You can learn (by doing) the construction of financial statements & cash budgets. For those interested in financial economics the book teaches about the Capital Asset Pricing model, Return On Equity, Net Present Value and the Cost of Capital. It even contains a section on forecasting which is invaluable to those looking to do rather than read about it. Best of all it shows you how to do this stuff with a readily available desktop application(excel). Furthermore, you learn not just how to input the authors formulas but how to build your own using the IF, AVERAGE, TREND functions etc. etc.
The best thing about this book is that you don't just read dry definitions of finance and economic arcana, but practice it as you go along. This really helps to build your skills!

This book got me a very comfortable start with spreadsheets, and it is interesting to experience how effective it is in combining spreadsheet proficiency with finance proficiency, as the author intends. Although somebody buying this book today may have concerns with its utility given its publication date, I've just begun using spreadsheets with Excel 2000 and I still found the book immensely useful. You may, however, find yourself yearning for the version of Excel current at the book's publication date simply so you might bypass any dealings with that notoriously --and incredibly-- stupid paperclip 'helper'.

This book is horrible if you do not have the basic understanding of finance or excel. The usual book will have multiple examples throughout the book of each concept that is being discussed. This is not what occurs in Financial Analysis 4e. What I need to know should be in the book and isn't. It forces one to use alternate sites to attain the knowledge that is lacking in the book.

Should be "Introduction to Excel using Finance Examples" At an introductory level, the Excel coverage is OK. But the finance component is extremely shallow. The authors need to team up with someone who knows finance. Those who seriously want to learn what this text wanted to offer should try "Financial Modeling Using Excel and VBA" (Wiley Finance)

by Chandan Sengupta.

I wanted to learn about principals of finance such as depreciation etc...this book is NOT for that. It assumes you know a good bit about finance, but have never heard of Excel...not a likely scenario.
Skip Accounting 101 and 102!! Forget Finance!! Go to the source! The authors make power Excel-using a breeze. Simply laid out, easy to understand. Enough financial theory to educate, but not enough to drown in. Gives you step-by-step templates of how to set up your worksheets. This book, in combination with Excel's Spinner control, lets you forecast budgets, cash flows, financial ratios, and more like a high-powered CFO. I can't wait for their advanced financial analysis book due out soon. I recommend this as a "must have" for anyone interested in money or any Excel power-user wanna-be's. I actually read this in my spare time just for kicks!!
