"Excel and VBA have vast capabilities, yet until this book, users were on their own to figure out just how to use these tools for both single and complex financial problems. Financial Modeling fills the gaps with practical guidance to modeling a wide range of finance problems."
TIM KOLLER, Partner, McKinsey & Company, Inc.
