We're definitely taking this along with us the next time we shop for a house. Though it takes a little effort to master the collection of financial worksheets available on the Texas Instruments BA II Plus, you'll be glad you invested the time and money in this fine financial calculator.
The BA II Plus operates in standard calculator and worksheet modes. The standard mode lets you perform common math as well as operations involving the time value of money--that is, applications such as mortgages or annuities in which payments are equal and evenly spaced. You can also perform trigonometric functions in standard mode.
The more hard-core worksheet mode includes tables for amortization, bond, depreciation, and compound interest. If you're not familiar with such calculations, the very helpful user's manual will guide you through the process. All previous worksheet values are stored in memory, so you don't have to retype all the bond maturity or cash flow analysis figures.
The average user who wants to calculate a basic loan payment will be more comfortable working in the standard calculator mode. We were using the BA II Plus tools for calculating basic interest and payment periods within minutes. Still, it's good to know that the more advanced features are available for those who require heavy-duty financial computing.
Finance students and average users alike will find much to like in the Texas Instruments BA II Plus. --John Frederick Moore

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The buttons sometimes does not register.
With the old TI's I could glide across the buttons and did not have to check to see if my inputs registered. The buttons are not silky and rough and I have to use more force to get the input to register.
There is no sign indicator. This is just preference, but there is no way to know if you are using the correct sign.
The version I received was different from the picture. It is still a BA II Plus, but it does not have a sliding cover. It is a snap off cover, which is kind of annoying, since more dust can get into and make the calculator dirty.
Also there are imperfections font.
I will be using this calculator for class since it does calculate TVM, but even for basic calculations I rather use my other calculators.
I would not recommend this calculator to a friend.
If you do not understand basic finance concepts like credits, debits, etc. this calculator can be frustrating for a few functions like determining the interest earned. You have the present value (PV), future value (FV), and years of accumulation/periods (N) but want to solve for interest (i) you must make one of the values negative (-) otherwise you get an Error Code 5.
No troubleshooting in the manual; however, the website for TI is very helpful.
My comment about "Works for class but be advised there is a fancier version" is in regards to the box, once it arrives it compares this model to the BA II Plus Professional. It has a few more functions; however, this one works fine for my Basic Finance for Managers class. This is the reasoning behind my less than five stars, I was buying it for all my classes and future uses; however, it might come up short.
If you're looking for a calculator to use for work, do yourself a favor and get one with more than one line on the screen (like my blessed Casio).
If you're just looking at the reviews because some nutty professor said you needed this one, it's functional and serves its purpose but if you can get away with a different calculator, I think you'll know which one I'd recommend.
To summarize, here are the pros and cons I experienced in using this item:
- item is lighter than usual programmable calculators
- has an auto off function, which saves battery life.
- takes time to get used to
