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.
