Excerpt: This calculator was purchased to replace one that I had for over 20 years. I use this calculator every day for both my real estate appraisal business and for personal and community group activities.
Excerpt: I love my 12C calculator. It works great and Ilove the design of it. The only thing that I wish could change isthat when you are solving for "N" the number of payments or periodsthat it didn't automatically round the answer to the nearestwhole number.
