    Just working through the DFS and finding a pain in the backside using my simple old canon calculator. It has very little functions other than the basic +-*/=.

    Which one do you use? Which one do you recommend? May as well buy one that will do the job properly.

    Cheers

    LOL, you cheapskate:D

    I need one for the workshop classes I'm attending in a couple of weeks, something that would fit in my pocket would be nice..... instead of hauling my pc around with me;)

    Lol

    As long as you know how to add, subtract, multiply and dividd with fractions and % you'll be right!

    I still use my highschool calculator and I left school in 97!

    Cheers,

    I just paid a whopping (wait for it) $185 for my 13 yr old son's graphics calculator for school!! How times have changed :rolleyes:

    *Actually, after paying that much and then scouting the net for cheaper and
    2nd hand ones I ended up returning the original and settling on $110 for a used calculator on Ebay. I love that site :D
