All participants should bring a laptop computer with Microsoft® Excel™ installed. Alternatively, a financial calculator capable of making NPV and IRR calculations can be used. The Hewlett Packard HP10BII is recommended. Hewlett Packard HP12C, HP17BII, or Texas Instruments BAII or equivalent models, are suitable substitutes. Check your app store if you prefer to work on your phone or other alternative.
Participants are strongly encouraged to become familiar with the material in the Self-Teaching Manual for Economic Evaluation and Investment Decision Methods. This manual will familiarize the participant with evaluation terminology and the "time value of money" concepts used in class. Residents of the United States will be mailed the Self-Teaching Manual approximately three weeks prior to the start of class.
