  1. Ready Reckoners for Interest? says:

    I’ve recently been looking for a “Ready Reckoner” of pre-calculated interest tables for simple and compound interest similar to these pocket refs here. Before pc’s and web applets made computing compound interest so easy, these books used to be sold everywhere. I’d like to give one to an elder relative who has re-taken an interest in his finances but I can’t even get a bookstore clerk to understand what I’m trying to find much less if there are any still published today. I’d be happy recreating one in a spreadsheet if only I had one to imitate the format / layout / values of. Any help from fellow Makers?

    I would gladly pay some serious money to have these in eBook form (yes, even with DRM) so that I could carry them on my Blackberry.
