**Recommended Calculator**

The workbook and questions include the keystrokes for the Hewlett-Packard, model HP10BII calculator. Of the financial calculators on the market, the HP10BII is the easiest to use and it only costs about $50. If you use a different calculator, you will have to use slightly different keystrokes. However, the calculations will not differ.

**Competency**

You must have the ability to solve problems involving the time value of money, capital budgeting and investment risks. You must also be able to use numerous formulas. Some candidates failed the Examination because they could not quickly and accurately answer these questions.
