CFA exam allows only the TI and HP calculators.

No function key display in the LCD panel, so you are not certain which button you have just pressed.

OPENING NOTES:

Just to clarify, this is a financial calculator, essentially the same calculator as the "Texas Instruments BA II Plus Advanced Financial Calculator" but with a cosmetic make-over.

PROS:

- Very attractive appearance.

- Nice "firm-touch" keypad.

- A couple of additional functions (compared to the BA II Plus Advanced).

CONS:

- Leatherette soft case instead of hard case.

- Approx. $21 more (at time of writing) than BA II Plus Advanced.

REVIEW:

This is a very nice calculator. It is full-featured financial calculator with an attractive appearance. The brushed metal face has a polished metal inset to highlight the primary financial function buttons. I like the button layout (which is the same on both the Professional and Advanced models), and preferred it over that of the HP 10bII financial calculator, which I thought had poorly-marked non-financial functions.

The calculator has a solid feel that is consistent with its metal look, and that is further reinforced by the "firm-touch" keypad. Personally, I like the feel of the firm-touch keys and prefer it over a regular keypad, as is found on the BA II Plus Advanced.

My one complaint about the BA II Plus Professional (and the reason I rated it as 4 stars instead of 5) is that it has a soft case instead of a hard case. While the soft case will help protect from superficial marring, it won't protect the calculator from impact or pressure damage, or from accidentally pressing buttons (such as "On") when carrying it. For the extra $21 more than the Advanced model, it would be nice if the Professional model came with a case that will actually protect it.

Finally! This is a superb upgrade to TI's previous BA II product. I hated the previous model with a passion given the near "touchless" keypad (allowing for frustrating key entry). THIS is the calculator that I would want to use for the CFA exam (did I mention how much I HATED the previous TI BA calculator??).

For those thinking of the HP12C line, I had a 12C for many years and loved it. However, after it got ruined due to a playful two year old, I bought a new one and found it cheaply made compared to the one I bought in the 80's (very disappointing) and have since abandoned using it. Interestingly, I found the following calculation example from a review of the HP 12C Platinum edition to be very interesting: "If possible, I would suggest that potential users and buyers try this data set on both the 12C and 12cP before buying. Clear register. Find [i] after input [PMT]=-1458;[FV]=0,[n]=84,[PV]=103600. The HP12C would take 20 seconds "running" while the HP12cP would take about 30 seconds to give the same answer [i]=0.4059!"

How long for the BA II Plus Professional? I timed it at about one second.

As calculators go, this is a mighty sweet device -- especially given the clear HP-like display viewable at all angles!! Count me as a definite TI BA II convert!

Have been a stalwart HP financial calculator user for over two decades...started with an HP41 in college with financial templates. I always admired HPs for the durable build, ease-of-use (once you got over the RPN hurdle) and displays. I finally needed to replace my over decade old HP 12C and the newer HPs simply do not impress me. Cheaper (as in WAY cheaper!) build...the HPs that came from Malaysia were fantastic calculators...solid keystrokes, superior grade of plastics, the whole nine yards. The newer HPs are made of a plastic that is a giant step backwards. The keys are now laughable, no 'HP Feel' to them at all.

I took all of this in and thought to myself, 'I guess everything is getting cheaper, nowadays...'. Then I ran a NPV calculation at the store and was downright shocked to see it ran slower than my old HP. The one thing I thought MIGHT save the purchase (i.e. cheaper plastic but faster processor) didn't happen. I tried all of the newer HPs...the one display model of the OLDER HP12 (the non-Platinum model and still made in Malaysia) definitely runs TVM calculations quicker. This is NOT how to impress old bankers with a new product.

Time to check out the Texas Instruments BA II Plus Professional. At first glance, to an old HP user, I thought it really LOOKED TI-ish; that is to say, very non-HP. But upon pressing a key or two, I was impressed that TI at least made an attempt at obtaining the old 'HP Feel' to their keys. Not as 'pretty' as HP's angled keys, but good tactile feedback and get this: If you'll hold up the TI BA II PP horizontally and sight down the keys, you'll see they are actually angled! Nice touch, TI.

WHO WOULD BUY THIS? The Texas Instruments Business Analyst II plus Professional (BA2+PRO) is the latest business calculator which would appeal to the demanding business user who wants features, functionality, solid construction and a calculator which has a really professional look.

WHAT'S NEW? Compared to the BA2+, this 60% more expensive BA2+PRO "upgrade" offers several new functions like MIRR, NFV, Modified duration, payback, discounted payback.

My first out-of-the-box impression of the BA2+PRO, is its large, clear and contrasty monochrome LCD display screen, this is a nice improvement over the TI BA II plus (BA2+).

The BA2+PRO is quite nice to hold, it feels "heavy" and looks as solidly constructed as the HP12C, it would not slip on the desktop when user press the buttons and facilitates one or two index finger(s) operation. In contrast, most BA2+ users would have to hold the calculator on one hand while operating the calculator with the other.

The buttons on the BA2+PRO are "harder" than its predecessor the BA2+. Users who are accustomed to the soft-touch BA2+ buttons will notice the difference. However, seasoned HP12C users would welcome the same "firm-touch" buttons on the BA2+PRO which is as tactile as the keys on their HP12C.

Unlike the BA2+, battery replacement on the BA2+PRO is convenient, its sliding battery compartment is user-accessible without the need for a screwdriver to open the casing.

With its contemporary design and its manufacturer supplied soft accessory "leather-like" case, the professional look of the BA2+PRO appeals strongly to the fashion conscious users.

HOW DOES IT RANK AGAINST ITS' COMPETITORS?
