    Well the exam is next month for S1, so its about time I got my ass together and bought a graphic calculator for stats.

    I already have the a graphic calculator but it doesnt perform all the functions for stats (its a casio 9850g no plus). My college sells the 9750G plus for £45 which I will probably buy in the end.

    But are there any other cheaper alternatives to the casio calculator and are there any calculators on ebay/other shops which do all the stats functions also for a cheaper price.

    So basically what calculators do you guys reccomend?

    Thanks

    Edit: What about the ti -83 calculators?

    What's wrong with the Casio fx-115MS? Plus you don't even need any statistical functions for a stats paper since for full marks you must show your working (i.e. using the formulas).

    I use a TI-83 plus and a Casio fx991-ms. Both good at what they do.

    - Double check you are not about to learn to use something illegal!
    - Don't try to learn to use a new calculator just before the exam. It could well throw you completely.

    Not as bad as our teacher who told us we could do modulus graphs on our calculators AFTER the FP1 exam ~_~

    No it's useful though, as you can e.g. find Sxx Sxy, Syy..etc incredibly quickly

    I'm sure I can do that with my regular calc. But I never do, cos I just can't be bothered =\

    So, yes, regular calc should be enough.

    The calculator is mainly needed for the normal distribution which my calculator can't do at the moment. It will save a lot of time having to look stuff through tables etc otherwise I'm good.

    Thanks
