Which Calculator? - Posted by MN~Chicago

As I mentioned in my email, I have sent off a copy of “Discounting as Easy as 1,2,3” that will help you know the calculator very well. It is generic to any calculator. The HP manual will help you understand their menu system.

I tried the search button first, but only found
mention of HP 10,12,16,17,etc. Is one particularly
outstanding for note calculations?


I like HP 12/17/19 - Posted by John Behle

I used to use a TI business analyst and it works great. I moved up to the HP12C when I took the CCIM courses, because it was the required calculator at that time.

I still use the 12C occasionally - if my 19B isn’t handy. The 19B is much quicker and more capable. I do a lot with un-even cash flows and it is ideally suited for that. Many others do not handle un-even cash flows or are cumbersome.

The 17B is a little bit of a scaled down version of the 19B and has the same menus and functions. A lot of people like the HP10. I have one, but do not like to use it. Compared to the 19B it is a pain.

I do a large percentage of my calculations on the computer. The speed and flexibility are a big advantage.

Thanks for posting about that, John. After no answer for 5 days from Sharp Electronics on my old calculator,I bought the
HP19BII. The HP19B is not listed on their web page
www.HP.com, so I guess this is newer version.
It has laser printer interface to 16-ounce printer sold separately.
All details that are on the box are on the web page-go
to calculators from main page.

It comes with $99 offer for Timevalue software (www.timevalue.com) but I’m assuming the calculator
enables you to input the information and calculate it
yourself if you know how. I’m not recommending anything
just mentioning this in case anyone is familiar with it.

It also comes with a $20 offer for a self-study course (book)on how to
use the calculator, and a pocket guide ($7).

Thank you. - Posted by MN~Chicago
