I've found earlier editions of Simon Benninga's Financial Modeling to be a great reference, and I've used them often. The fourth edition again offers helpful tips for using Excel in the most efficient and powerful manner to solve finance problems. These tips are illustrated in clear, step-by-step fashion so that the reader can start using them right away. The fourth edition also offers an improved flow of topics within the primary headings of Corporate Finance and Valuation, Portfolio Models, Valuation of Options, Valuing Bonds, and Monte Carlo Methods, along with updated examples and exercises. Financial Modeling continues to be a valuable resource for practicing finance professionals, students, and professors. -- Robert A. Taggart, Professor of Finance, Carroll School of Management, Boston College
