Summary: This line of SHARP calculators are excellent for Math and Science. The thing that makes me recommend them to students is the fact that they have both Stats functions and a good Fraction key, as well as all the other useful scientific functions. Not all scientific calculators have both a fraction key and stats functions, and when they don't have both, my students end up buying two calculators.
Summary: This calculator will take time to learn, but is optimal for basic statistics and calculus functions. I do not always need a great size calculator or software program for basic functions! I recommend this to others!
Summary: I have used a previous generation Sharp calc for years as a student and an engineer. I'm picky on button feel and layout. Sharp must have had success with the design since it was very close to my old calc with a few improvements. It is well worth the money if you do not need a graphing calc.
Summary: It's a working calculator that gets the job done. The screen is very "bright" the numbers are kind of dim. I really prefer Texas Instruments calculators, but this calculator works fine. I bought it because I needed a non-graphing scientific calculator to use on Precalculus tests.
