Links to Other Jump Start Courses:
If you have no background in corporate finance, I suggest you read the first chapter of my required core class textbook (Corporate Finance by Berk and DeMarzo, 2nd edition).
In addition, for those of you with no background in investments, McGraw-Hill created an e-book with the first 4 chapters of the Investments elective textbook. This is what you should read to learn the lingo as well as some important aspects of financial markets. The attached file gives you step by step instructions for purchase on their website http://www.mcgrawhillcreate.com/shop. The e-book costs $10.88, the ISBN is 9780390234834, and it is called "MBA Finance."
