Summary: Does what it says in the advert. Have used scientific Calculators since they came out, they are always improving. This model was recommended to me as it's used in schools / colleges working towards national curriculum, no matter what age group, it covers the syllabus. Easy to work with others if you have one yourself. Great for Dyslexics, big clear screen, that fits in longer calculations. % and Fractions are speedy. Powered by battery and solar so not left short.
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.
