All calculations are presented step-by-step, showing keystrokes and displays for four of the most popular financial calculators: the HP-17bII/HP-17bII+, HP-12c, HP-10bII/ HP-10bII+, and TI-BAII PLUS.
We recommend the HP-10bII/ HP-10bII+ calculators. Instructors use these calculators in live class sessions for education and review.
