Instructor Supplements

Annotated Instructor's Edition (AIE) ISBN 0072469870

All your teaching resources are tied together here! This handy resource contains extensive references to the Instructor's Manual regarding lecture tips, ethics notes, Internet references, international notes, and the availability of teaching PowerPoint slides. The lecture tips vary in content and purpose—providing an alternative perspective on a subject, suggesting important points to be stressed, giving further examples, or recommending other readings. The ethics notes present background on topics that motivate classroom discussion of finance-related ethical issues. Other annotations include notes for the Real-World Tips, Concept Questions, Self-Test Problems, End-of-Chapter Problems, Videos, references to the Cases in Finance text by Jim DeMello; and answers to the end-of-chapter problems.

Detailed solutions for all end-of-chapter problems appear in section two, with selected transparency masters in section three.

Test Bank ISBN 0072469919

prepared by David Kuipers, Texas Tech University

Great format for a better testing process! The Sixth Edition Test Bank has been updated and reorganized to closely link with the text material. Each chapter is divided into four parts. Part I contains questions that test the understanding of the key terms in the book. Part II includes questions patterned after the learning objectives, concept questions, chapter-opening vignettes, boxes, and highlighted phrases. Part III contains multiple-choice and true/false problems patterned after the end-of-chapter questions, in basic,

intermediate, and challenge levels. Part IV provides essay questions to test problemsolving skills and more advanced understanding of concepts.

To borrow a phrase, writing an introductory finance textbook is easy—all you do is sit down at a word processor and open a vein. We never would have completed this book without the incredible amount of help and support we received from literally hundreds of our colleagues, students, editors, family members, and friends. We would like to thank, without implicating, all of you.

Clearly, our greatest debt is to our many colleagues (and their students) who, like us, wanted to try an alternative to what they were using and made the decision to change. Needless to say, without this support, we would not be publishing a sixth edition!

A great many of our colleagues read the drafts of our first and subsequent editions. The fact that this book has so little in common with our earliest drafts, along with the many changes and improvements we have made over the years, is a reflection of the value we placed on the many comments and suggestions that we received. To the following reviewers, then, we are grateful for their many contributions:
