I strongly recommended that every business student should have a good quality financial calculator. The quizzes assignments and tests that require calculations will be much easier and less time consuming if you become proficient with a good quality financial calculator. For my F2F classes I recommend the Texas Instruments BA-II Plus. Many of the exam problems involve financial calculations - a financial calculator is necessary to solve them. The Texas Instruments BA-II Plus is a popular financial calculator for business professionals and students. It allows users to take advantage of all the same time-saving financial functions. With Time-Value-of-Money, cash flow analysis, and advanced statistics, the Texas Instruments BA-II Plus is perfect for applications in finance, accounting, economics, investment, statistics, and more.
