In the Time Value of Money, authors Peterson Drake and Fabozzi expand upon the type of time value of money concepts usually presented as part of overviews given in other general finance books. The basic foundations, concepts, and theories are presented, and then the authors offer examples throughout that serve to reinforce the tools and techniques discussed, and engage readers with consumer finance topics. Problems and detailed solutions (demonstrated using two different financial calculators, as well as Excel) are also provided at the end of each chapter while definitions are called out throughout to introduce terms.
