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 for questions they will face on exams and for client situations they will experience 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 are:
- Basics - turning on the calculator, setting the decimal places, clearing, etc.
- Time Value - Present value, future value, amortization, uneven cash flows
- CFP® exam formulas sheet
- Investment calculations - including standard deviation, duration, multiple dividend growth model, and many others
And as with all Keir materials, there are numerous practice questions to strengthen student understanding of the material. Keir also provides online pre- and post- tests to verify that students have achieved a minimal level of competency.
