      I was wondering if anyone has any resources that list useful functions on the TI-BA II Plus for Level II (and their application). I didn’t find out about the easy way to find covariance, for instance, until late in the game for Level I. I recognize some of the obvious ones like the depreciation function, but I thought this might be a nice thread to compile some “tricks” to make things more efficient wherever possible.

      Sorry I can’t help, as I use the HP12C. But I’d be interested in creating a similar thread for tricks on that calculator, as well. I suspect that most of the tricks would be applicable to both Levels I and II, so maybe it should be a thread in the General CFA Topics?

      Ahh, I am now scrambling to find my old notes and scribbles of this as I used TI-BA II plus years ago for the exams. Will get back to you on this @Jim! Good topic 🙂

      Hey @Jim‌ – I haven’t forgotten about you. Check out today’s post for the major shortcuts on BAII plus that I found useful for the exams.


      @edulima
      ‌, although I don’t use HP12C myself per se, will see if I can get hold of one and review and compare shortcuts.

      @Sophie – thank you for the excellent post on the BAII plus – I have already printed out and put on my office wall.

      there comes a book with the professional one I am reading on the book for proper use of calculator, I am surprised why they do not allow normal Casio calculators like 991 MS (being more eco friendly and more easy to use with their dual screen places for input and output. Sophie thanks for sharing, knowing how to use your calculator to its limits actually puts the confidence and the power in your hand for the Exam
