Recommended Posts

As i've just began my level 2 2330, i need a scientific calculator. My question is which one will be suitable, obviously I dont want one thats too expensive (I am a student Guiness Drink) Ive seen casio ones but not sure which one to go for.

Which ones have you used?

Thanks in advance

Well Sean,

I have 2 Casio Scientific Calculators - They are and remain, New.

Don't like them!

I prefer the One Mrs Admin bought me from Lidl, when I started my 2330 in 2007.

Mrs Admin, Tried the two local to us - because I thought I'd lost mine and I was about to start my 2392.

But they didn't have any. - Didn't matter as I found it afterwards.

The one your going to - is by the Fire Station, Right?

If so - they are pretty good in there. :)

I have a Casio and a Sharpe and find the Sharpe easier to use!

I'd have a look in supermarkets - now the kids are back at school they often sell things like that off cheap!

I have a similar one, fx-83ES and tbh its a PITA because every time I do a calculation it presents the answer as a fraction and I then have to press the S-D button to get a decimal result. I have tried everything I can think of but dont remember any settings that would give me an option for it to do it in decimal every time. I am close to driving the car over it........
