The document starts with 100 questions that students, alumni and other persons (judges, arbitrageurs, clients…) have posed to me over the past years. They were recompiled so as to help the reader remember, clarify and, in some cases, discuss some useful concepts in finance. Most of the questions have a clear answer but others can receive several emphasis. A short answer to all of the questions is provided in section 2. It continues with 104 questions related to valuation, with 86 definitions very useful to clarify concepts and 49 questions related to differentiate concepts.

Keywords: flow, net income, intangibles, required return, simple return, weighted return, market premium, beta, value, book value, value creation, EVA, FCF, WACC
