Which calculator to use? HP or TI?

just wanted to hear some opinions on the 2 calculators allowed for the exam…is one of those preferable over the other?


I’m using an HP, mainly because I got it for free. No experience with the TI, but I’ve heard it can do some statistical functions that the HP can’t.

I’m having some issues with the buttons. I know some people like the HP buttons for the audible and tactile click you get, but I’ve found that I can press just hard enough to get a click without actually registering the button. Super annoying.

TI, faster, cheaper, great built quality, easy to change battery (although I highly doubt you will have to)

Definitely TI. You can write some other professional exams with it too.

Never used the TI but the HP 12C is pretty good. All feedback I’ve heard is that the TI is the way to go but, if you happen to find a HP 12C for a penny and are prepared to learn a bit of Reverse Polish Notation (you don’t need to use brackets - not an option on this calculator), then go ahead - they both do essentially the same thing.
