Hi all,

Does anyone have a 17bII+? Since it supports menus, it seems like a nice little machine to carry around..assuming one can store the trig series approxs, for engineers at least.

Also, on the hp site, I found this statement:

"These documents have been prepared for scientists and engineers to provide useful information about using the hp 17bII+ financial calculator."

...do they really mean the scientists and engineers...or did they just forget to edit the field from the previous calc template? ;)


I have that machine, but I rarely use it.

Go through the PDF files, they are helpful.

You may also download the manual

I still think it's mainly for banking, etc.



The 17BII+ is primarily a business calculator. Do a search on this board to find approximation formulas for some engineering functions.

If you do get a 17, please be aware of the battery consumption. I had to change batteries several times after two-three uses and memory is not retained when changing batteries.
