17 July 2010
  • Excerpt: "An ideal calculator for GCSE and A level students. When joing my Maths A level course they seemed to make out you need a graphic calculator, but this calc does all the functions necassary to get a high leve l A level in Maths. Of course it does your basic sums - which is the absoloute minimum. But more important, it can give answers in decimal value, and pressing a button will put it in Surd form or fractional. Precisely what is needed for A level. ...
  • Pros: Does it all
  • Cons: Can't draw graphs, but this isn't essential

The Perfect A-Level Calculator

8 December 2009
  • Excerpt: "As a mathematics and physics A-Level student, my calculator is a very important day to day tool. The Fx-85ES is everything you'd need at this level, plus much more! One particularly excellent feature is textbook mode, which allows you to put equations in exactly how you'd see them in your text book and inputting is so exceptionally easy that i've found that any other calculator does not feel as solid. The exponential button uses x10 rather than E, ...
  • Pros: Text book option equates to easy calculations; Great for A - Level Mathematics and Physics
  • Cons: Compared to more expensive calculators it has less features .  .  .  understandably .  .

Casio casio

Babithas, Ciao
27 June 2009
  • Excerpt: "The best feature that you get with this model is its durability, i have had mine for well over 5 years. Being an avid mathematician, i use it time and time again and never has the screen blurred or ran out of battery, which is impossible as it has two way power. The natural display feature means that we can write equations and fractions the way we see them, and don't have to mess around with buttons that we would usually have to tamper with on other ...
  • Pros: Durability, usability
  • Cons: it lacks a few features as your maths gets more in depth

  • Excerpt: "...like the colour of the casio calculator, the front section is black and the back is grey. There are some lovely curves and the calculator is nice and thin (about 1cm) and is extremely light-weight for it's size. Efficiency - I purchased this calculator a year ago when i was sittting my GCSE's and found it to be of great use. I am not a person who is too smart in maths (got a D at GCSE) so i could not use the calculator to it's full potential. ...
  • Pros: scientific, size, weight, design
  • Cons: perhaps it should be all black in colour

  • Excerpt: I brought from my college for my sister who is doing her GCSEs, however I borrowed it and fell in love (ok it`s a calculator I know) but when I was doing my A-Level maths it made life a lot easier, screw knowing the exact values of trig functions and log conversion laws, this does it. Gives you the exact values and can do any log!

  • Excerpt: "Casio is the leader brand in calculators worldwide up to now it's the only brand I ever use. Bought this one from Argos two years ago only to have it as a spare in case the other dies of batteries in the middle of the exam since it was cheap and it was solar powered so no need to have to worry about batteries. When I first switched it on I freaked out when I saw the natural typing they added in this new series of models and was very relaxed when ...

19 September 2007
  • Excerpt: "This product is easy to use and has all the key features most scientists or mathematicians would need. It is also useful for children at a KS3 and higher level but probably nothing lower. There are simple, easy to understnad instructions included (which are definately helpful if you understand anything to do with maths as well as I do - i.e. not well at all!) to show you how to use certain buttons on the caluculator, but apart from that it is pretty ...
  • Pros: easy to use, fufilled it's potential as a calculator
  • Cons: none  : )

  • Excerpt: "...Argos). The calculator is made by Casio which is a well known and trusted brand for calculators. The dimensions are 84x155x12mm and it is light to carry. It comes in two parts - the main calculator (black face and grey base) and plastic sliding lid (grey). The lid is easy to use although personally I just keep the lid on the back leaving the calculator displayed all the time. The keys are large enough for easy use and also all writing is clear ...

  • Excerpt: "...I never once regretted it. Casio have always been my favourite brand of calculators, but this is definately their best yet. I have found it extremely useful in both core maths and statistics. The ability to view your calculations as you would see them on paper helps to see what you are doing and make sure you get the operations in the right order (no more BODMAS mistakes with this calculator!) It's a very easy calculator to get the hang of, and ...
  • Pros: Natural textbook display, Easy to use, Good value for money, Casio, everything !  !
  • Cons: None !
