This book was created to strike a balance between the academic concepts of time value of money and the technical aspects of a calculator manual. Keir has produced a book that is both user-friendly and relevant to the students’ needs. The lessons are prepared to give students practical applications they will face on exams and in their professional lives. The book includes the key strokes for the HP 10BII, HP 12 C, TI BAII Plus and HP17bII+.
Some of the topics covered:
Basics – turning on the calculator, setting the decimal places, clearing, etc.
Time Value – Present value, future value, amortization, uneven cash flows
CFP® Formulas sheet
Investment calculations – standard deviation, duration, multiple dividend, different compounding
And as with all Keir materials, there are many multiple choice questions to make sure the student has understood the material. Keir provides an online pre and post test to verify that students have achieved a minimal level of competency.
