shit.... i meant FINC2011

Have you been using the Perdisco e-workbook? If so, have you tried "Annuities due" questions?

In the Perdisco e-workbook, their approach to "annuities due" questions differ to the one shown in our textbook. The two approaches produce different answers to each other.

Yes and no, the perdisco involves working out the present value with an ordinary annuity and forward dating it, however, they are the same thing and both formulas will simplify to each other.

The two approaches produce different answers to each other.
Really, there's no other way I can put it but to say that you are 100% wrong.

The equation given on page 47 of the finance textbook, equation (2.12), can be manipulated to give the Perdisco equation. I just did it right then, to make sure.

I'm doing the equivalent subject at UNSW - Just a question, is that perdisco e-workbook thing any good? I mean, \$30 odd bucks - what do you get? extra q's?

Oh nevermind. Yes they are the same.

I personally find the e-workbook worthy because the questions and feedback are helpful. But i think the questions may not be challenging for the more intelligent students and therefore not worth purchasing.

Failed it without doubt. I made the dumbest decision by staying up all night which totally backfired. I came into the exam with complete exhaustion and was unable to recall the simplest formulas and methods to get me started doing any questions. After the first half hour, i was so tired that i started seeing double vision and my brain was shutting down. Sigh...
