Hi.I need some help.I want to buy scientific calculator for Acca exams. I don’t know which one is best. Can anyone please recommend me best calculator for all Acca examsf5-f9 nd P exams aswell? ThanksJuly 30, 2016 at 6:09 pm #330300
You need a financial calculator rather than a scientific one.
I have always used a HP 10bll+ for all my Acca exams.
Not sure if that is the best you can get but I never had a problem with it.July 30, 2016 at 6:15 pm #330302
Wt is difference between financial nd scientific calculator?July 30, 2016 at 6:34 pm #330307
The difference is that financial calculators are pre-programmed with many different financial algorithms (e.g. compound interest payments, margin, mark-up, IRR…).
In a scientific calculator you will find things like cos, sin, tan and so on that are not relevant for Acca.
Of course, you can do everything financial with a scientific calculator but you can do it faster with a purpose-built calculator (provided that you learn how to use it properly by reading the instructions…)July 30, 2016 at 9:33 pm #330319
Is this calculator allowed in Acca exams in uk? ThanksJuly 30, 2016 at 10:45 pm #330335
Of course it is!!
What is :”allowed in Acca exams in the uk” supposed to mean?
Acca exams regulations apply equally everywhere. The only calculators which are not allowed are those which can store or display text.July 31, 2016 at 10:37 am #330393
