Textbook and Course Materials (Required) Fundamentals of Financial Management , Concise, 6 th edition, by Eugene F. Brigham and Joel Houston. The 5 th edition is fine if you can’t find a used 6 th edition. (The main difference between the 5th and 6th editions is that Ch. 2 and 5 are flipped, so if you have the 5th, be certain you are reading the correct material for Ch. 2 and 5.) Also acceptable is the 7 th concise edition. Also acceptable: Brigham and Houston, Fundamentals of Financial Management , 12th edition. Finance majors are encouraged to purchase the 12th edition which will be used in BMGT 440. There is an online study guide available, but this is not required – just helpful for students who want more practice. My course notes, practice problems, exam review documents, project description, old exams, are available on blackboard: http://bb.rhsmith.umd.edu or www.elms.umd.edu . To do the course project, you will need a MySmith account. If you are NOT enrolled in the Robert H. Smith School of Business, I will need to request one for you – send me the user ID that you use to log into Blackboard or Elms. (Required) A financial calculator – any calculator that will calculate net present value and internal rate of return. A good financial calculator is the Hewlett Packard (HP) 10B or HP 17B or HP12C or the Texas Instruments (TI) BA-II Plus, but you can use the IT-83. Information on using these calculators in the Calculators folder of Blackboard. Recommended: Reading business press like the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Fortune, etc. regularly. As a business major, you’ll need to be fluent in the language of business. These publications are great ways to practice that fluency. I have student subscription forms that give you a reduced price for the WSJ and free access to online WSJ with paid student subscription.

BMGT 340 Syllabus Prof. Elinda Kiss Practice exams are posted on blackboard. It is good practice to complete the practice exams before taking the “real” exams. Taking a practice exam, however, is not a substitute for reading the material, working relevant problems and studying before the exam. Course Objectives
