Management Core I (Econ, Accounting, Stats). Each year I am asked by students if it is OK to
take this class without the prerequisites. I leave the decision to the student. If you feel
comfortable in your ability to complete the coursework without the prerequisite classes, then you
may stay in the class. Please realize, you will have to work harder than classmates who have had
these classes and your grade may reflect not having the foundational material.

You will need a calculator that can compute time value of money
(should have PV, FV, I/Y, N, and PMT capability) and uneven cash
flows (should have NPV and IRR capability). If you have a TI-83,
TI-83+, TI-84, TI-89, or HP-48G, TI-BA-II+, HP-10BII, or HP-12C
your calculator already has these functions or you can download
them from the web or program them. If you do not have a calculator
that can do these functions, you need to purchase a

the CFA exam in my opinion (and one of the cheapest options).
will use a TI-83+ and a TI-BA II+ in my class demonstrations
