Investment Banking, UNIVERSITY EDITION is a highly accessible and authoritative book written by investment bankers that explains how to perform the valuation work at the core of the financial world. This body of work builds on Rosenbaum and Pearl’s combined 30+ years of experience on a multitude of transactions, as well as input received from numerous investment bankers, investment professionals at private equity firms and hedge funds, attorneys, corporate executives, peer authors, and university professors.

It focuses on the primary valuation methodologies currently used on Wall Street—comparable companies, precedent transactions, DCF, and LBO analysis—as well as M&A analysis. The ability to perform these methodologies is especially critical for those students aspiring to gain full-time positions at investment banks, private equity firms, or hedge funds. This is the book Rosenbaum and Pearl wish had existed when we were trying to break into Wall Street. Written to reflect today’s dynamic market conditions, Investment Banking, UNIVERSITY EDITION skillfully: Introduces students to the primary valuation methodologies currently used on Wall Street Uses a step-by-step how-to approach for each methodology and builds a chronological knowledge base Defines key terms, financial concepts, and processes throughout Provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of LBOs and an organized M&A sale process Presents new coverage of M&A buy-side analytical tools—which includes both qualitative aspects, such as buyer motivations and strategies, along with technical financial and valuation assessment tools Includes a comprehensive merger consequences analysis, including accretion/(dilution) and balance sheet effects Contains challenging end-of-chapter questions to reinforce concepts covered A perfect guide for those seeking to learn the fundamentals of valuation, M&A , and corporate finance used in investment banking and professional investing, this UNIVERSITY EDITION—which includes an instructor’s companion site—is an essential asset.

Cognitive Aging

Genre: Medical

For most Americans, staying "mentally sharp" as they age is a very high priority. Declines in memory and decision-making abilities may trigger fears of Alzheimer's disease or other neurodegenerative diseases. However, cognitive aging is a natural process that can have both positive and negative effects on cognitive function in older adults - effects that vary widely among individuals. At this point in time, when the older population is rapidly growing in the United States and across the globe, it is important to examine what is known about cognitive aging and to identify and promote actions that individuals, organizations, communities, and society can take to help older adults maintain and improve their cognitive health. Cognitive Aging assesses the public health dimensions of cognitive aging with an emphasis on definitions and terminology, epidemiology and surveillance, prevention and intervention, education of health professionals, and public awareness and education. This report makes specific recommendations for individuals to reduce the risks of cognitive decline with aging. Aging is inevitable, but there are actions that can be taken by individuals, families, communities, and society that may help to prevent or ameliorate the impact of aging on the brain, understand more about its impact, and help older adults live more fully and independent lives. Cognitive aging is not just an individual or a family or a health care system challenge. It is an issue that affects the fabric of society and requires actions by many and varied stakeholders. Cognitive Aging offers clear steps that individuals, families, communities, health care providers and systems, financial organizations, community groups, public health agencies, and others can take to promote cognitive health and to help older adults live fuller and more independent lives. Ultimately, this report calls for a societal commitment to cognitive aging as a public health issue that requires prompt action across many sectors.

Genre:

Trying to pass your Series 66 Exam? Pass The 66 is written with the reader always in mind. This Series 66 exam study guide uses Plain English and concise explanations as it ticks off the items mentioned on the NASAA Series 66 exam outline point-by-point. To reduce your frustration in obtaining your Series 66 license, we try to make sure each sample question in our Pass The 66 Online Practice Question Bank is explained within this textbook. In fact, we encourage you to use this study guide while working through the Series 66 sample questions. When you encounter a tough practice question, you can quickly and easily look it up in this textbook in order to come away from the question with a deeper understanding of the topics involved. Remember that the Series 66 license exam is not a memorization test but, rather, a "competency exam." Too many Series 66 exam candidates go to the testing center expecting to simply recognize a few vocabulary terms when, in fact, passing your test requires you to work with the information at a much deeper level. That's why we explain things in a way you'll both understand and remember at the testing center. It takes more work on our end, but we feel our job is to make things easier on your end. We also take what you learn in the pages of this Series 66 exam study guide to a higher level by presenting you with over 900 challenging questions in our test bank. However, our sample questions are not designed to merely trick you--which most people find discouraging and confusing at best. Rather, our Series 66 sample questions are designed to help you learn the information as you improve your ability to eliminate the incorrect answer choices you will see when taking the Series 66 exam. Be sure to keep a notebook filled with all that you learn from working the questions and reading the helpful explanations that follow. For an extra edge, try writing your own variations of practice questions in this same notebook, something our tutoring clients have found extremely helpful. Pass the 66(c) is your guide to a passing score on the Series 66 exam. This textbook is at the same time in-depth and easy to read. We don't skimp on the details found on the NASAA outline. Rather, we skimp on the filler found in many of the more tedious license exam manuals on the market. To give yourself an edge on this difficult license exam buy this book and then go to www.examzone.com to purchase the practice questions and other Series 66 study materials. This test is not easy. The best time to get started is . . . now."
