The most common models are the HP 10bII, HP 10bII+ and TI BAII Plus. A financial calculator has many financial functions (so you won't need to memorize a lot of formulae for the exams), and we will go over the use of a financial calculator in the course. You can download a Financial Calculator Guide for the course. Either of the following are good choices:
