    When you look at Amazon for ‘BA II Plus’ you get calculators that look like this:

    But my calculator looks like this:

    They’re both BA II Plus but I think mine is the old version that was phased out a few years back. Is this still accepted for the CFA exams?

    You’re good on both of those.

    On a related note, does anyone see an advantage of the Professional version?

    If you are happy to pay the higher price, might as well get it.

    The BA II Plus Pro, er, Pros:

    Sturdier build and looks better (subjective of course)Designed for battery to be changed without having to need a screwdriver (but this is notoriously tricky)Discounted Payback Period feature (nice to have, not required for CFA)NFV feature (nice to have, not required for CFA)

    Cons:

    Some people complain that it’s not as responsive, and that’s important because you want to make sure your input is correct!Usually more expensive

    I have a BA II Pro, can confirm that the battery is impossible to replace.
