If you suspect the calculator is giving a wrong answer, it could be TVM compounding settings.  HP 10bII+ is factory set to assume monthly compounding (12/Yr). To follow some examples, you may need to set annual compounding (1/Yr).  You can set it here or another slightly more detailed writeup here.

If you still not getting the desired answer, you could try resetting your HP 10bII+ calculator.

    I went through the test and looks like everything came out good except checksum: was 96.096 and battery was: 3.000. What does this mean? I have been having a hard time coming up with correct answers on questions.

      Hi Dylan - did you ever sort out why your checksum was at 96.096? Mine is as well and is not producing correct answers. Thanks!
