 Kelly Coughlin Topic Author Offline Junior Boarder Posts: 24 Karma: 1 Thank you received: 6 Can anybody tell me how to perform these calculations using a standard Windows calculator? I bought the Prepcast formula study guide and although I have the formulas I cannot figure out how to do them using the Windows calculator. Thanks.

 Kevin Nason Offline Senior Boarder Posts: 76 Karma: 3 Thank you received: 18 Kelly I would start by looking on YouTube for some very simple videos, like this one . It is important for you to understand the PV and FV formula and what it means so you can pull the relevant data from the exam question. Looking back when I took the exam in April, the PV and FV question required analysis and understanding. Once you understand the meaning of the formula the "manual" calculation was easy. The prometric center I went to handed me a very basic calculator, as in small and limited functionality. I also had access to the "windows" version and that was very basic as well. There was not option to change the calculator to a "scientific" or what other options there are currently offered in windows in current versions. It is something I checked. So my advice to you is to not to rely on short cuts available on a calculator, given that the test center may not have those options for you at test time, and the actual exam question may not be so easy as plugging in the numbers. I personally find that understanding the formula and how it works is much better, since you can always back into the answer given the it is a multiple choice exam. I hope this helps you and best of luck in your exam prep! Kevin Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site. Check this box to be notified of replies to this topic.
