Summary: I find it hard to use, my daughter loves it. we had a problem getting started, as the book inside with sim card number & mobile number was incorrect, one too many numbers, (12 instead of 11) I was told by Vodafone, so didn't know who to complain to argos or Vodafone, as I had spent several hours trying to sort it out, also did a colleague of mine, also a patient, all to no avail. so we ended up spending loads of money on the telephone finding out what the problem was.
Summary: Was looking for a calculator to start my Open University course (MST121). At first i looked for a graphic calculator, but realised after abit of investigation that although useful, not needed. As the focus is understanding formula's, and not trying to workout large complex answers quickly. Anyhoo it is an easy calculator to learn, although the manual is basic. Most of my fellow students have the same calculator.
Summary: To work on OU degree, needed to upgrade from my 34 year old scientific calculator. Meets the needs of the course and has been relatively intuitive to use. It seems to have plenty of knobs and whistles which may be useful later. Like the solar capability because with my luck, you can guarantee the batteries will run out in the middle of an assignment. I do like its protective cover, great for when it is loose in my bag.
Summary: My teenage son asked me to buy this scientific calculator for school as he said that it is the best one that there is. My older son who is studying maths at university also has the same one. They have both told me that this product has the best features.
Summary: Bought this for my 11 year old daughter, my 13 year old already has one. Secondary School recommended this make and model, and as my 13 year old has been using it for 2 years perfectly well, I got one for my other daughter. As it is pink, don't think many boys will "borrow" it!
Excerpt: Casio have been known to make great calculators, they are always of a high quality and are very popular. This calculator lives up to the Casio name. This looks good and has a great feel. It has a large "natural" dot display unlike cheaper calculators who have a semi 7 segment display and dot display. This makes it easier to use and see.
Pros: Great for GCSE, Very durable, Easy to use
Cons: Not enough features for A Level, Expensive Batteries
