To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I used this book for my Valuation course in my MS Finance degree program. This book covers many proven valuation methods and is supported by very comprehensive and current data. We used this book in parallel to a semester long group project in valuating a mining company. This book was a useful tool to use while working on our project. It is easy to understand outside of the classroom and provides clear instruction and well written examples. This book is a must-have for your professional or academic valuation and finance tool-kit.
Read the chapters assigned for my equity course. At first it was easy to understand, because of the frankness in the writing. As I went through the chapters, it got more and more difficult to really follow.
