Summary: I've used a few different types of Texas Instruments calculators and this one is my least favorite. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was in much worse shape than described when I got it, but I also wasn't used to the functions. Fine if you've never used another TI calculator before or are ok with learning different functions and ways of doing things.
Excerpt: this scientific calculator by texas instruments is easy for my son to use. It is a requirement to assist with the state exam and with my child needing additional assistance this is definitely a must have
Excerpt: I have needed a calculator to carry around in my purse for the longest time, so when I decided to finally purchase one I went to the Office Depot online website because I have had positive experiences with ordering from the site in the past. When it came to my buying decision, I wanted a scientific calculator so I could calculate some of the most complicated math problems without having to reach for a pen and paper.
Summary: The outer case seemed to have gone through war; could not turn it on when it arrived, upon further inspection found out the batteries where drained and there was a broken screw holder inside. It works though, for how long? who knows.
Barely more than replacing the batteries in the old one

Summary: This is a great, basic scientific calculator. I took college chemistry, physics, and statistics with one very much like this. When the batteries died in ours, they were about $7 each to replace. Amazon to the rescue, got a whole new calculator for basically the same price.
Summary: I've lost track of how many of these calculators I've owned. They usually succumb to an extra dash of sweetened coffee. This is a great calculator and I highly recommend it for minor engineering projects and for school work.
