Excerpt: This calculator is awesome. It does everything and more and the battery last forever. I have two now and the first one I bought 3 years ago is still running strong. It was inexpensive (I think it was around $30, but I had a coupon), especially considering all the awesome features you get with it. They're pretty simple and straightforward to use. They are even programmable with other calculators and no matter how difficult the math equation is, it will help figure it out.
Excerpt: This is probably the best calculator for middle to high school kids. I got mine in seventh grade and it was all I needed until calculus. In fact, we weren't even allowed to use graphing calculators until pre-calc. I held off getting one until calculus, though, because my TI-30XIIS did everything i needed it to and was so easy to use. The layout is very good and, for such a low price, it packs a lot of calculating might.
