A First path in Finance является первым такого рода пособием, с простым и кратким подходом к изложению основ финансового курса в доступных терминах. В нем использованы простые числовые примеры для пояснения всех основных финансовых концепций (и формул).
Текст может быть использован в качестве полного курса, или как дополнение к традиционным учебникам по финансам.
Первые отзывы студентов были очень положительны в обоих случаях.
Несмотря на то, что это пособие подходит для самообучения, первоначальная цель его разработки была дополнить обучение в классах начального высшего образования и аспирантуры. Автор рассчитывал втиснуть материал в размер "напряженного" семестра или более размеренных 2-х семестров. Содержание:
