  1. I have a job interview coming up... I'm really excited.

    I assume the position will involve developing formulas for financial engineering. My gusses are high finance, collars, statistical analysis, TA, and god knows what else

    Can anyone reconmend any books and some tips to help this fellow asshole out? :p

    It would be much appreciated.
  2. you have the perfect mentality. you'll be fine.
  3. ^ I know :D

    But I am looking to brush up. I've cracked out a couple books from my college years:

    Applied Mergers and Acquisitions by Bruner
    Financial Calculus by Baxter

    I'm also tring to build that god-damned Black-Scholes pricing formula into excel plus some other features I hope they will enjoy. Or am I wasting my time?
