What is the best introductory book to corporate finance you know of, for self study purposes?


Sort of like corporate finance for dummies . I am looking for a couple of books or softwares that not only can explain things well , but also have plenty of practice exercises and correct step by step solutions , for self study purposes.

If necessary I will also get hold of their instructor's manuals and study guides.
