Default Calculators

Is the BA II Plus good enough for Exam FM or should I buy the professional version?
Are there any future exams for which I will need a calculator other than the BA II Plus or the TI-30XS?
Thanks in advance.

BAII+ is good enough. Same for TI30XS AFAIK.

+1 on the BAII being sufficient for the Exams.

But for the cost, the TI30 Multiview is worth getting as well.
