Summary: This calculator is very useful for common record-keeping calculations, not just scientific. The 4-line multiview screen displays all of the entries for a calculation enabling them to be reviewed for correctness.. The answer can be used as a subtotal, allowing subsequent entries to be added to it. Depending on the overhead lighting, the calculator may need to be tilted for good visibility of the display, even with the contrast adjusted to maximum.
Excerpt: Excellent price point (under $20) or a calculator that daughter may only use a few years before she needs a more high-functioning TI version. Am hoping that like other well-made TI products, it will last this long so she may pass it down to me (her mom!) for my lower-level elementary math needs. It says it's solar powered, so you might want to put it out in the sun before use.
