Bodie, Kane, and Marcus' "Investments" sets the standard for graduate/MBA investments textbooks.

Well I did not finish the book since it is just too long and I did not have that much time before my final *hoping I wouldn't flunk*. If you want to go into stock investing you should check this out, the material is pretty basic and straight forward.

Very comprehensive treatment of the subject.

Brilliant textbook! Got me through my Capital Markets and Corporate Finance modules with flying colours.
The book is very well written and structured - examples are constantly given to improve your understanding, and all information is given at pace where readers can understand a concept thoroughly and then build upon it.

Great investment... will pay off dividends.

This is a good text for learning the basics of portfolio theory. It is not an advanced text. There is also not enough calculus. Its main weakness is that some material could have been skipped to make room for more advanced content because students already should have had CAPM and basic time-value of money as part of the core curriculum.
