I have been looking for some resources which will be useful for me in gaining a better understanding of financial matters - accounts, international finance, all the usual things that come up in translations and in which I would like to specialise further.

Does anyone have any recommendations for good educational books, resources, courses which are aimed at theory, rather than practice?

Thanks in advance

try this one Mar 22, 2006

There is theory (.ppt files) as well as practice (Multiple Choice and True or False exercises).
Hope this helps.

You can subscribe and can get the term of the day (and its description) via email. Many of my colleagues find it helpful.

Good luck!

Your local library? Mar 23, 2006

Just an idea - gets you out of the house, is easier on the eyes than reading from a screen, you can read in the bath, and it's freeicon_smile.gif

Thanks everyone!! Mar 23, 2006

Thanks for all that everyone - have only had a chance for a quick glance, so all this is now on my 'self-improvement' pile along with yoga, more exercise etc. still left over from my new years resolutionsicon_smile.gif

The LIBRARY!!! Are you mad???? You mean I actually have to leave my desk??? What kind of insane suggestion is that???

(actually that is a great idea, and the obvious answer now I come to think of it).

On similar lines, has anyone taken any evening classes or similar in financial matters?
