Summary: This is a great calculator for use on the FE and PE exams. It has a great combination of built in functions, constants and conversions. Personally, I prefer using HP calculators so I already had an HP 35S, but I bought a TI-36X as well as this Casio. After a lot of studying and test taking I found that I much preferred the Casio for working on those big exams.
Excerpt: We use these calulators in our business class environment for the last several years. We teach over 50 students per year and only use this calculator because it meets our needs and more plus has a great price. THey are reliable and come with a cover. With the solar panel, batteries are a thing of the past. We use scientific notation as well as simple multiplication, division, adding and subtracting. Keys are large and easy to use.
Excerpt: I am proud that I made right decision by purchasing the Casio FX-115ES Plus after comparing it with the HP product available in the store. It is very useful for systems of equations and functions I could do calculations using numbers in rectangular & polar formats in the same equation. Also, the calculator can convert the result to the format you like and it works faster. I love it and I recommend it for Engineering Students. Very nice external design.
Best Calculator for Undergraduate Engineering Student.

Has all the typical scientific calculator functions that you'll need/expect for college level math, science, or engineering classes. The math input allows you to input your calculations in a way that allows for minimized transcription error. (ie.
