    Hey guys,

    Looking to get a good calculator and was thinking of TI 84 C Plus. Its a bit pricey and not sure I will ever be able to my head around it. But, I have heard that it can be very useful tool.

    Any alternatives that anyone can recommend?

    Thanks

    You may want to research whether you'll be able to use it in exams, as it is programmable.
    Ok, it looks fine https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...ies&pageTypes= for Edexcel at least.
    Interesting, l think I have a Tl 83 lying around. Not brilliant, but if I learn how to use it it might be of help.
    As Zacken said, Casio are good. I use this the whole time to check integrals, sums and sometimes even matrix products and roots of equations, complex number expansions ... http://www.casio.co.uk/products/calc...1ESPLUS-SB-UH/

    I have recently purchases a CASIO FX991-EX Classwiz - it's an updated version of the ES and it's a lot quicker and has a few added features. It has a really nice feel to it as well.
