Each chapter includes a set of learning objectives to help the student understand what should be learned and mastered from each chapter.
Virtually every chapter includes numerous examples and case studies, some hypothetical and some real, that help students gain insight into some of the most interesting and sophisticated realms of financial theory and practice.
Major results and key words and concepts are highlighted throughout each chapter. In addition, the functional use of color is deliberately and carefully done in order to call out important topics.
Practical Insights is a feature that contains unique guidelines to help students identify the important practical issues faced by the financial manager and where to look in that part of the text to help analyze those issues. This feature enables the book to serve as a reference as well as a primer on finance. Practical Insight boxes are located at the end of each of the six parts.
Executive Perspective feature provides the reader with testimonials from important financial executives, who have looked over parts of the book and highlight what issues and topics are especially important from the practicing executive's perspective. Examples include Myron S. Scholes, Thomas E. Copeland, David C. Shimko. These are also found at the end of each of the six parts, just after the Practical Insights feature.
