Advantages: Easy to use, Solar panel
Disadvantages: Not as capable as the newest versions
This calculator has taken me through all my years in school of maths in the sciences and pure maths. Having taken maths for A level, this calculator was necessary for me during the exams as it is a fully scientific one with all the functions needed.
It is grey and comes with a case to protect it (these are never allowed in exams though). The case has the Casio logo on it and simply slides over the calculator. The calculator itself has grey buttons consisting of the normal numerical side of things with all the mathematical signs too such as 'x', '+' and '-'. There are two red buttons above these including a delete key, which is very useful when you make a mistake. This way you can delete a certain figure by scrolling back along what you have typed in using the directional pad at the top. Beside this D-Pad are the 'on', 'mode' and shift/alpha buttons. The shift/alpha buttons are like the shift button on a computer and simply give secondary functions to keys when pressed. There are many different modes that you can go to such as statistics for use in this subject area.
This calculator is very capable and has always been used in exams. It's very easy to use once you get used to it and will take you through Advanced Level maths without a problem! I would highly recommend it, as it costs a few pounds. It may be harder to buy as most shops are now getting the newer Casio versions in with a larger screen able to fit more on so you can enter more complex sums.
Thanks for reading
Summary: A great calculator, which will take you through A level maths comfortably
