BAII-PLUS_RCI1096_Back.jpg (192481 Byte)The BA II PLUS Advanced Business Analyst was the successor of the the BA-II Executive Business Analyst. The calculator uses a housing similar to the TI-68 scientific calculator.

The BA II PLUS uses two modes of operation: the standard-calculator mode like a simple TI-30 and the prompted-worksheet mode similar to the FIA-10.

Standard-Calculator Mode

• Standard math calculations
• Time-value-of-money (TVM) calculations using N,I/Y,PV,PMT,FV

Prompted Worksheet Mode

• Cash flow calculations
• Amortization calculations
•
Bond calculations
• Depreciation schedules
• And a lot more (totally 12 worksheets are available)

In some European countries the calculator was sold as Texas Instruments BS II (Business Scientific 2). 

Production of the BA II PLUS was later shifted to Malaysia and eventually to China, find the new version here

In 2000 the calculator got in some countries a more stylish housing, it seems that this calculator will last in France more than a decade. View the new edition here.

Stokes Publishing Company, Inc. based in Sunnyvale, California sold a companion for the teacher, view the colorful Business.

The BA-II PLUS is featured in the Texas Instruments Incorporated sales catalog CL-1233 dated 1994.
