Summary: The Casio FX-260 is a reliable, inexpensive compact scientific calculator with a built-in solar panel. Besides the usual functions among its 144 functions you'll find fraction calculation, random number generator, exponential multiplication, PI, and many more.
Summary: I love it. It does all I need and I am learning to love the fraction feature, as well. It is handy in remodeling projects. It has a nice slip on hard cover. I would like to see little rubber feet that keep it from sliding around on the desk as the keys are pushed.
a reasonably priced, and very capable scientific calculator...

Summary: Great scientific calculator that will fit most people's needs. I'm a math/computer science student, and this one fits the bill for my basic calculation needs. It's super reliable as well. I had been using this calculator since the sixth grade.
Summary: I have a BS in mathematics and an AS in engineering. When I started my degree, I bought a very expensive graphing calculator. I used in exactly twice in 4 years of studying math. This calculator has every function you need for 99% of work you will have to do in math or engineering.
