    I'm doing A-level maths and am sticking with my trusty Casio calculator from GCSE (the scientific ones). No need to get a graphic one

    I brought a graphic calculator suggested by my sixth form college for £58 but I would entirely suggest it to anyone looking at the amount of work it does for you. The Casio fx-9750Gll is great at AS level because you will just be creating more work for yourself with a scientific one.

    Graphical calculators can sketch graphs, find intersections, integrate to find areas under curves and many more things. All of these things you'll need to be able to do.

    Oh, it can also do the whole S1 exam for you...

    Yes, it has everything you need though I'd be tempted to upgrade to the fx 991 ES plus.
    It has several extra features that are helpful for checking answers.
