    Good Financial Calculator

    Posted
    electronicswiz

    this is a great financial calculator for any finance student or people in the financial working world. it has the ability to do just about any financial calculation (annuities, annuities due, NPV, IRR, cash flows, general investment problems and much more). it is fairly self explanitory to use and if it isnt then the paper insert on the cover will tell you most of what you need to know. the only downside i've found on this calculator was trying to find the NPV of cash flows in the billions of dollars because the calculator only goes to 10 digits and i couldnt find the 'carrot' symbol so i had to round off a few of the numbers

    The BA II is easy to understand and use. It is consistently right in its calculations. It is not a bad deal for the price of $34.99. I borrowed a financial calculator from a friend who has an HP 10bII+. It was useless to me as I couldn't make any headway with it. I don't like having to read a whole instruction booklet before performing simple calculations like the TVM (time value of money). I fully recommend the TI (Texas Instruments) BA II Plus to those studying Finance or just needing a good financial calculator.

    I'm taking a Finance class and I find this calculator much easier to use than the HP-10. If you have a lot of experience with TI calculators, then this one should be fairly easy to learn. TVM keys are easy to to work and and conveniently located. My only concerns are that it doesn't feel as sturdy as my TI-84 and the buttons are a lot stiffer too. Additionally, the button placement is arranged a little differently and I constantly find myself turning the unit off when intending to clear data from the screen.

    Great Calculator, But Don't Recommend

    This is an awesome calculator. It does everything you'd expect it to do and then some. However I don't recommend it. If you need a calculator for a business class or something, then it's great, but if not, just download the '10BA Pro' calculator on android or Google. The app will give you more functions than this calculator for free. So, unless a professor won't allow you to have your phone out for something in particular, just download the app for free.

    Texas Instruments does not make an inferior product. I have used TI calculators since Junior High, and I have not yet been disappointed. I was also pleased to find that the Financial Calculator is affordable. I thought I'd have to shell out $100+ for this versatile calculator. This is the standard and most financial course text books will have instructions on how to use a financial calculator, specifically the TI Ba II Plus. Once you get the hang of the functions, problems that took hours will take only seconds.

    I purchased the BA-II financial calculator for an MBA program and it has served me well. It has all the financial abilities needed for a graduate level finance course or for those that would use it every day. The only feature I thought was lacking is the memory feature of a standard calculator. Although it will store data points from a spreadsheet, there is no easy way to add or subtract numbers from a running total.

    As any Texas Instrument calculator that I have owned in the past, this calculator does all the functions I need it to do. I purchased this calculator for a finance class, and it has worked for all the application I have done so far. The calculator was $10.00 at Best Buy than other stores. I would suggest this calculator for other business students and anyone who is working with Time Value Money problems.

    Very Good Calculator, Performs Bountiful Tasks

    I purchased this calculator for my son, a college senior, who required a well-rated calculator that could perform numerous tasks for some business courses. While he finds this BA-II meeting most all of his expectations, he has found one drawback to be the default Rounding mechanism in some math calculations, which made some responses problematic, where 100% accuracy was required by Professors.

    I bought this calculator for my wife because she was going to college for her master's degree. I owned a ti-85 when I went to college so I knew this calculator would be a good purchase. All in all working great for the processes my wife needs to accomplish, and I would always recommend a Texas instruments device.

    Bought this for one of my kids to use in school. This was the model recommended for their classes. Performs up to what I expect out of TI. Very durable and accurate. I have an extremely old TI calculator that I used in school over 30 years ago and it is still going strong. They might be pricey but VERY well worth it.

    Gets the Job Done

    I bought this calculator for my finance class to use primarily to calculate mortgage interest rate, time to maturity, etc. This calculator is excellent for this purpose. However I find that my TI-30X IIS has a much easier to use interface and has a better feel overall for all other calculations. However, this does get the job done and I would recommend this to anyone who needs it for academic/testing purposes.

    I have been in banking for over thirty years and my calculator would no longer work. I looked around online and in various locations, Walmart, Target, Office Depot and Office Depot. Most of those were not cost effective and did not seem easy to operate. I then found this at Best Buy, it was less expensive than the office supply stores and fits all of my needs.

    Wife was using an app on her phone before purchasing. After getting she states she should have got it at the beginning of her class for it was so much easier for her to use and get the correct answers. Definitely an item to get if taking financial courses!!

    TI BAII Plus vs. HP12C

    I do finance tutoring. I've taught students with both calculators. I own both calculators myself. TI Cons The TI is not nearly as intuitive as people claim. The complexity it adds, does make it a little easier to check errors in your calculations. However, this also leads to erroneous answers if you aren't careful about resetting your registers. TI Pros It's inexpensive and it's durable.

    many youtube explains this one, so not really need a booklet but lacks of some advanced functions, the cover is not so easy to open,unlike the previous sliding cover no discount or coupons for this one, not recommand, buying a $10 used is a smarter choice

    This is the calculator to get when you start taking accounting and finance courses in college. It calculates time value of money. TI also makes a more advanced financial calculator for twice the price, but that one is for experienced business professionals who are into advanced finance.

    If you are a finance or accounting student this calculator is the norm for schools and teachers tend to know how to use it. It is simple once you learn the different functions and very helpful because of the variety of formulas/functions.

    This calculator has its limits if you are thinking of using it for anything besides business functions. It might be wise to pay more and get a T90 or better. It works great for what it is supposed to do.

    I specifically got this calculator for an accounting and finance class. So far it has exceeded my expectations and is very simple to use. it also calculates Time Vale of Money which is helpful. It has a great price for being better than a four function calculator but cheaper than a graphing calculator.

    Nice calculator, and the one the universities allow yout o use as well as provide support for. It's a little complicated to use and the buttons seem counterintuitive compared to other models you've used in the past, but overall not bad for the money.
