2 Finance Help Desk Finance 3403 teaching assistants will maintain office hours at the Finance Help Desk to assist with student questions. The Help Desk is located in BA1 room 456, on the 4th floor of the College of Business. The office hours will be posted in Webcourses and on the door of the office. Please take advantage of these times so we can help you clear up any questions you may have and prevent you from falling behind in the course. Students who frequently visit the Help Desk for assistance tend to do well in this course. Our teaching assistants will work with you at no cost at the Help Desk during their office hours. If you need help after hours, you may ask to hire them to tutor you for pay, but these meetings must take place off campus .

3 Financial Calculators We will discuss ways of solving problems using business calculators. These exercises will enable you to become proficient with calculators and will enhance your learning experience greatly. The recommended calculator is the Hewlett Packard 10BII+ Financial Calculator . You should be able to find this calculator for about $30-$35 at bookstores and local office supply stores. This calculator will suffice for this course (and other courses in the business curriculum) since it allows students to input cash flows and calculate internal rates of return and net present values. There are other calculators which have these capabilities, although we may not be familiar with them. Based on my experience over the past several semesters, I strongly recommend the Hewlett Packard 10BII+ . You can find a list of dealers and other support for the calculator at . It’s available from the HP website for $29.99. Click on “shop now,” then “Displays & accessories” and then “calculators.” Students who do not have a financial calculator with the capabilities similar to the 10BII+ will be at a considerable disadvantage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
