Are you ready to start investing? What exactly is insurance? How is credit card interest calculated? Personal finance is often seen as confusing and has a language all of its own. In Managing Your Money, Tony Boczko demystifies this subject by providing a practical guide for financial management skills and personal financial planning. A whole range of personal finance topics are discussed in detail, including savings and investments, borrowing, personal taxation, pensions, insurance and debt. Students are t expected to master intricate calculations, but are given a solid framework within which to understand the issues. Managing Your Money also provides: * A wide range of scenarios, case studies and examples providing a practical, real-world context; * features such as learning objectives, activities, self-review questions, further reading, and key points; and * an emphasis on both life skills and academic skills. This easy-to-read book provides simple and practical information for making sound financial decisions. It is specifically intended to guide students through a module in personal finance, but contains valuable advice that would be useful in later life. A companion website for this book is available, which contains the following: For students * a selection of end-of-chapter multiple choice questions * additional end-of-chapter self-review questions * links to useful websites For lecturers * PowerPoint presentation slides for each chapter * summary answers to all end-of-chapter self-reviews, case study discussions, and additional end-of-chapter self-review questions
