    Can you bring 2 calculators to the exam? What do people do to hedge against dying batteries? Is it allowed to bring extra batteries to change?

    I have both HP 12c platinum and BAII Plus and was planning to bring both to the exam if allowed.

    Hi @TylerTX2000 – yes you can bring all of those mentioned: extra calculators, extra calculator batteries and even screwdrivers for battery change. Full checklist of what you can bring is detailed here.

    Interesting that you have 2 completely different calculators and are well versed in both though (which is amazing). Usually candidates just pick one and stick to a type 🙂

    I also bought two calculators for emergency purposes.

    Not only CAN you bring 2, but we recommend it!

    Remember that only two calculator types are allowed:Texas Instruments BA II Plus and Hewlett Packard 12C. Proctors will check all of your calculators, so your back-up calculator must also be an authorized model.

    Another alternative if you only have one is to bring batteries. Here’s a video on how to change your Texas Instruments BA II Plus battery:
