The McGraw-Hill 36-Hour Course in Finance for Nonfinancial Managers by Robert Cooke
For many business managers, dealing with financial figures can be the most difficult part of the job. Now the busy professional can gain a working knowledge of finance, and understand how the numbers relate to decisions they must make every day. The McGraw-Hill 36-hour Course in Finance for Non-Financial Managers is a complete guide to all the essentials of financial reporting and budgeting. It features self-tests at the end of each chapter so readers can make sure they've mastered each basic concept before proceeding to the next, and a final exam is presented at the end of the book. Whether putting together a budget, trying to make sense of a financial statement, or keeping score of sales, readers will find clear and easy-to-read guidance to the financial ideas and applications that matter most in the business world. In addition, an imaginary case study is introduced at the start of the book and continued through succeeding chapters. The growth and development of this true-to-life company serves as an enlightening - and often amusing - illustration of everything from cost of sales, to equipment depreciation, to overhead expenses, to balance sheets.
