Excerpt: I have had this calculator for many years now, I remember I carrying this with me throughout my time studying GSCE, and A levels, I even took it with me to University just in case I needed it, however studying Psychology meant the calculator stayed in my bag most of the time. PRICE This calculator is really cheaply priced compared to other scientific calculators; Amazon has it for sale for around £7.00 Play.com £10.99 Euroffice £7.50 Supplies Group: £9.42 It’s worth...
Pros: Easy to use, Price, displays fractions, many features, design, Memory store .
Excerpt: Casio are the indisputable king of student calculators. Their interface is both simple and powerful. I have been using this model from my Key Stage 3 days up to my current A2 Mathematics days and will continue to use this well into my university years. First off, the design. Its is incredibly thin and sleek even with the cover slid on the back of it. It easily fits into any pencil case or bag and is very lightweight to carry around with you all day.
Pros: So powerful, easy to use, sleek design
Cons: You may be paying for features that you may never use
Excerpt: This calculator has been with me now through thick and thin in everything that I have done so far. Purchased around 4-5 years ago, this reliable workhorse has helped me in GCSE, additional, AS and A2 maths. This version comes without the solar panel but actually that doesn't work that well and I find my calculator lasts just as long as a friends who has a solar panel (I have only replaced the battery twice).
The calculator is perfect for students studying G.C.S.Es or below

Excerpt: Price No matter how much this calculator costs it is worth it, this is because these calculator are used nationally(KS2, KS3, G.C.S.E's) in the United Kingdom and therefore if any issues do arise then a G.C.S.E student could ask his/her friends or the teacher. A brilliant thing about these calculator is that they extremely cheap you can grab one of Amazon for a £10. From ebay you are able to purchase the never version (Casio FX83 Gt Plus) for £6.
Pros: cheap, easy to use, nationally used for G . C . S . Es, Battery life, the display
Excerpt: I have had a few of these calculators over my time and I've used them for GCSEs, A Levels, University, at home (for working out where my money's gone!) and I also use this model at work too. It is an integral part of the Casio range and compared to the rest of the range, I think this model sits in the middle both in terms of price and in terms of functionality. This model is not unlike others which Casio offer and it looks similar to many of them.
Excerpt: I brought my Casio fx-83 ES in my first year of university. It was the recommended calculator at the time by my university (Kingston upon Thames) and is now one of only two allowed in examinations. You can't really get more reliable than a Casio, not in my experience anyway. That being said I buy a brand new one at the start of each academic year. That is the other main advantage of a FX-83 ES: very cheap.
Pros: Very cheap, reliable, recommended by universities (most)
Excerpt: This calculator is one that my school sells in the maths department. this is the best calculator i have ever used and it is a scientific one aswell. this calculator is very thin and will easily slip into your school bag or in an office draw if need be. on this calculator there is 50 buttons which all help you with any sum. on this calculator it has the most usefull buttons for when your kid is in secondry school like pi,square,m-,m+.
Pros: All of the buttons you need to get an A *
Cons: The only disadvantage is the size of the top/middle button . (to big)
The reliable Casio FX 83 ES calculator is the best in its field!

Excerpt: This excellent calculator let me pass my IGCSE examinations in Higher Mathematics with ease. It is well built, great value for money and works perfectly and reliably. The key layout is intuitive and everything that you need regularly is easily accessible, whilst buttons with a less important function are accessed using the handy 'shift' key which changes most of the buttons action.
Pros: Fast, easy to use, intuitive, well made, cheap
Brilliant for AS and A Level math, but would be better with solar

Excerpt: This calculator is in my opinion the best to but for AS and A-level maths. It is incredibly simple to use and does everything it is needed to do. It simplifies in which ever way you like, either to decimals or fractions, or surds, which is incredibly helpful. It can do logs to your choice of base, factorials and many other things which AS and A level require.
Pros: Simple to use, wide range of features, cheap, simplifies in a variety of ways
Excerpt: I bought this calculator a fair while ago now- it must be about three years as I bought it for the start of my GCSEs as it was recommended as a good calculator for this stage of mathematics. I think I paid around £12 at WHSmith for this calculator but I have heard that you can get it very cheap on the internet- I even heard of a friend that got it for £3 at some place on the world wide web! (Possibly ebay?
