All of these (NPV, FV, IRR, Depreciation) used to be part of the PMBOK Guide, albeit earlier editions. They have since been pulled-out as of the 5th edition. This does NOT imply they will not be on the exam. My experience (PMP 10+ yrs) is that you cannot forget that the PMBOK Guide is just that, a guide, not the be all/end all book for project management. Having accepted that answer, it still does not definitively tell you what will be on the exam. Nothing does. No vendor is allowed to. To get a better understanding, get a copy of the PMP Examination Content Outline document.
Just to be sure, both Rita's 8th edition AND Head First PMP 3rd edition both talk about all of these topics. Page 2 of the PMBOK Guide even states "...continues to evolve along with the profession, and is therefore not all-inclusive"
