There is an excellent computer-based tutorial for the HP 12c Platinum on HP's website (although the sequence for TVM calculations is the same for the original 12c).

Download it and have a look. It will guide you key-by-key through the steps.

On a 12C Platinum, press f [ALG]

On a non-Platinum you're stuck. It has only the RPN mode.

Sorry, but the 12C doesn't have a fraction mode.

The HP 12C doesn't have a complex mode.

If you're seeing a "C" on the display, it means the calculator is set to use compound interest for the odd period. To switch to using simple interest, press STO followed by EEX.

The 12C is more expensive and more powerful than the BAII+Pro. The HP is also programmable, which the TI isn't. Starting from scratch (assuming you've never used a calculator before---a somewhat unreasonable assumption) the TI *might* be easier to learn, at least initially. But after a certain point, the HP will leave the TI behind. The HP is faster and more capable.

There are at least three different versions of the 12C available. There's the original 12C, the 12C Platinum, and the current 12C. The only way to tell the difference between the two non-Platinums is to look at the battery compartment---the original uses three button cells while the newer uses two coin cells. The newer one is MUCH faster. The Platinum, however, can use RPN or algebraic.

Unless your choice is limited to the 12C or the BAII (by the requirement of an exam, perhaps), you might want to look at the HP 20B and the HP 30B. Programmability aside, they're even more powerful and easier to use and faster than the 12C, and the 30B is also programmable.

There are other considerations, of course. Factors such as the feel of the keyboard, the 12C's landscape orientation as opposed to the others' portrait orientation, etc, are all matters of personal preference.

Disclaimer: I own multiple HP and multiple TI calculators. I tend to use HP calculators for calculating, while I use TI calculators to answer questions here at FixYa.

In any order, enter loan amount followed by PV, number of months followed by N, interest rate followed by i. Then press PMT.

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

I couldn't find any reference to a HP calculator model 12p.

There is a HP 12c financial calculator and a 12c Platinum financial calculator.

Check both models (for images, specifications, functions, user guides, etc.) :
