Course Information Prerequisites 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. Required Vendor Price (new) Price (used) PACKET PRINCIPLES OF FINANCE 5TH EDITION By BRAU, J ISBN: 9780700372652 BYU $31.10 $23.35 Calculator 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 financial/business calculator. The text we use has key strokes for the TI-83/+, TI-BA-II+, and the HP-10BII. If you need to buy a calculator, I recommend the TI-BA II+ as this is the best one for the CFA exam in my opinion (and one of the cheapest options). I will use a TI-83+ and a TI-BA II+ in my class demonstrations . You may not use your iPhones, Blackberries, Laptops, or other similar electronic device on exams.
