CFA® Program - CFA® Exam approved calculators

Only two calculators are approved for use in the CFA® examination, they are:

  • Texas Instruments BA II+ (including BA II+ Professional)
  • Hewlett Packard 12C (including the HP 12C Platinum)

Kaplan Financial recommends the use of the BAII+. In our opinion it has slightly more functionality for the exam, it’s easier to use and it’s cheaper. Kaplan Financial fully supports the BAII+ in our classroom delivery where you will receive instruction on getting the best out of the calculator in the exam hall.

Note that our CFA® Education phase course material includes a BAII+ calculator guide.

The Texas Instruments BAII+ Professional can be purchased at cost by ticking the calculator option our enrolment form or online.
