View Full Version : course2; corporate finance

Hi, new to this forum. I just recently finished interest theory and both econ. now i'm trying to attack corp finance, i don't have the textbook for it, i have the CSM however. could someone tell me the total worth of corp finance (how many questions among all?) and if it is adequate to just do questions from CSM for that section. thank you in advance.
By the way, i don't have any finance background.

Buy a study guide. Corporate finance is ~25 % of the exam, and is pretty tough to get a good handle on. Doing the CSM questions won't help if you don't understand what they are asking.
I've heard the Temple manuals are good replacements, but I'm not sure.

thanx, bg! but could someone please tell me how must each component is worth. I had the impression that course2 consists maily of theory of interest and micro. while macro and finance is only 30%.. apparently i'm wrong, seems like after all i still have to tackle corp finance.(I was planning on skipping them)... please give me more replies... please please :wink:

The division is supposed to be 30% Interest Theory, 30% Corp. Finance, 25% Micro and 15% macro. Seeing that you probably need 60% to pass, skipping Corporate Finance is pretty risky.

I definitely agree that it is risky. Last sitting, I scored in the 99th percentile for micro and 67th for interest theory and I didn't pass because I only scored in the 12th percentile for finance. Granted, I missed 4 finance problems cause of silly mistakes, but my point is that you will need to get at least a few finance problems correct to pass.
