  • The 12th Edition includes more explicit references to assumptions used in the analyses to help improve student understanding.
  • Additional self-help problems with solutions and relationships with answers ensure students have a wealth of hands-on experience putting text concepts into practice.
  • Thoroughly revised and up to date, Mayo's BASIC FINANCE: AN INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS, INVESTMENTS, AND MANAGEMENT, 12E delivers cutting-edge coverage of the three main aspects of finance: corporate finance, investments, and financial markets and institutions.
  • Coverage of classes of stock/preferred stock in Chapter 10: The Features of Stock has been thoroughly rewritten and expanded to make it easier to understand.
  • Chapter 12: The Features of Long-Term Debt -- Bonds offers new sections on Internet sources of information and on relationships.
  • Helping learners maximize their study time and comprehension, keystrokes for time value of money examples are included in the margins throughout the text, while illustrations using equations and interest tables explain the basic math associated with each example (e.g., the determination of bond prices and the yield to maturity).
  • Appendix E illustrates step by step best practices for using Excel to solve problems.
  • The text's coverage of the basics of advanced topics such as derivatives (including puts, calls, and futures contracts) gives instructors the option of also introducing their students to more sophisticated material.
  • Equipping instructors with the flexibility of streamlined coverage, most chapters in BASIC FINANCE are succinct enough to cover in one class. Two exceptions are the chapters on time value and risk, which provide enough detailed coverage of these complex topics to ensure thorough student understanding.
  • Enabling students to check their understanding as they progress through the text, answers to selected problems are provided in the appendix and additional problems with worked out solutions are included in appropriate chapters.
  • Learning objectives at the end of each chapter includes page references to help students quickly review key topics.
  • Repeated exposure to concepts in different chapters reinforces what students have learned, helping improve their retention.
  • Both concise and extremely reader friendly, chapters emphasize only one or two topics, focusing on the key issues that are most important for students to master in the introductory course.
