FI 360 Financial Management
F1T 2006 DLB
Circle, James J.
Textbook: The required text for this course is: Keown et al, Foundations of Finance 5/e, Prentice Hall, 2006 ISBN 0131856057 In addition, you will need a financial calculator. It is recommended that you use a Texas Instruments BA II Plus. This is the model that is used in the textbook examples. There are other financial calculators that will work (Sharp, HP etc.) however, they will not work exactly the same as the TI. I use the HP 12C, which is a more powerful machine, but it is a bit more challenging to use than the BAII. For your money, the BAII is an excellent purchase. The text also shows examples of how to solve problems using Excel. However, it will not be possible to use a computer during the final protored exam. NOTE: You may try an alternative means of acquiring the textbook, either through cut-rate bookstores or on-line sales outlets. However, sometimes the wrong book is received or it takes too long to reach you. Please be aware that you MUST have your text by the end of week 1 - if you don't have it by then, you won't be able to catch up your coursework. Whatever method you choose to get your book, just ensure you have it. Being prepared with the required materials is part of your responsibility as a student.
