Found this today while getting in some studying at work:
Pretty cool if you have access to the internet and don’t have your 12c handy.
Or you could use excel, which is 1,000,000,000 X better than the 12C.
Yep. But you won’t have excel on exam day.
yeah, but as long as you’re not using excel models and functions and using it for just simple math in the same way that you use the 12c, it should be the same.
Originally had the same thought as Palacio, figuring if you have internet access you likely have Excel access. MisterT makes a good point though, doing practice questions using Excel ain’t gonna help come exam day. Nice find Mr. T, please don’t pity me.
In theory there’s no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.
I do think the 12c online model is pretty cool, especially for those people who are interested in learning how to use RPN. I really hope they don’t do away with RPN calculators. I don’t think I could ever go back to using a TI with algebraic notation.
I haven’t been able to use an algebraic calculator for years.
