Summary: The calculator was purchased for my younger daughter doing IB1 math this year. She finds it very useful. My elder daughter also bought this calculator 2 years ago, again for IB math and IB economics. She is now in College and can't live without it!!
Great for solving engineering problems directly. Excellent tool!

Summary: very potent & powerful tool. Still exploring it's capabilities but I am very impressed so far. Using this calculator for integration and derivatives are straightforward because the functions are pre-programmed into it. Solving difficult problems in physics, chemistry & statics are easy.
Summary: Nice calculator. Outstanding in what it is capable of solving. Anyone who knows Casio I'm sure is not surprised. My only gripe is why do they keep reinventing themselves?! This FX-9860G 2 has ONLY one advantage over the beautiful, outstanding FX-9860G / SD, and that is it has a light. Big WOW. This is not as attractive nor is it built as solid as it's predecessor, the FX-9860G / SD.
Summary: My job is accomplished by scientific math all the time. I have had others calculators from HP which are very impressive for doing the math job. But, sometimes it is struggle because of HP`s stack operations. Buying this Casio 9860 it was amazing since i can plot very fast with few headaches. If somebody is interested in performing graphs and any sort of math operations i think Casio is the right choice.
Summary: Prior to the Casio FX-9860GII I used a TI-84. In terms of processor speed the Casio is a Ferrari compared to the Texas Instrument 84. It graphs very well with little to no effort vs. the TI-84; which at times is so slow that you think it's frozen up. The screen is easy to ready and the functions are fairly intuitive. Best part of all, this Calculator flat out beats the TI-84 for less money. It has an equation solver, does factoring, and countless other operations.
