Test. If you are preparing to take the Official GED Test, this is the calculator you
need to learn on. Every TI Calculator model has keys arranged a bit differently.
You need to learn to use this one. TI-30XS MultiView Scientific Calculator
When you take the GED test they will have an on screen calculator exactly like
this, however using an on screen calculator is very awkward. For part 2
of the math test, they will allow you to use your own calculator but only if it
is this exact model.
Why they replaced the (CASIO fx-260) with this one, I'll never understand,
but they did. If it works, fix it, right? Why they think they need multi-view etc, I'll
never understand but the calculator for the GED test is now TI-30XS MultiView Scientific Calculator
This is the only calculator you should use to prepare and have with you for the official GED test.
It is better than the TI-30XSII because you can see what you had previously input. That is really the main difference between the two calculators and this one allows you to see what you put in before. It's superior in my opinion.
(so you can enter a single y= function and get values to visualize the graph)
At NYU Poly, all the math courses require/allow only the TI 30 (non-pro) variants for the tests for all math, physics, and comp sci classes. So I get it, this version over say the IIS for MultiVew.
MultiView offers some improvements to the UI, including handling irrational numbers a lot better (like leaving √2 as √2) [which is great until you have to hit the menu and change it to classic view mode because you need to calculate that the square root of 2 is 1.414...]
As I mentioned, the table functionality is really nice
even if I didn't basically have to buy this calculator my view is the following:
if you're going to spend ~$10 (even $15) on a calculator, get this one. It is hands down the best non-graphing scientific calculator I've ever used.
What about a more powerful calculator?
I do still like the Z80 based calculators better [the TI 83(+), and TI 84+(silver edition)] and the TI 89 (titanium edition) is probably the best though most smart places don't allow it for tests (the TI 92(+)/TI Voyage 200 has a slightly higher resolution screen but the full QWERTY disqualifies it for many tests, while the TI 89 (Ti Ed) can be used on the SAT [not the ACT though])
I haven't used a regular TI 84+, any of the TI 92 based systems (92, 92+, and Voyage 200), the older models based on the Z80 that I haven't mentioned (TI 71, TI 81, TI 82, TI 85, TI 86), or the TI-Nspire series, but the Nspire's seem to have been a whole fiasco and I don't understand why you're getting that at that point instead of say an android phone.
(I also haven't used some of their other ranges of calculators like the nonprogrammable graphing or scientific models)
[I've only used the TI 89 and TI 89 Ti Ed via an emulator, beyond like five seconds of holding someone else's]
What about non-TI calculators like a Casio? Don't buy a Casio calculator. I actually own a Casio scientific or graphing calculator, not only is it worse than the equivalent TI, it's weird, and it has a poor adoption rate so getting around how some things work differently is difficult (eg in highschool algebra, how to use combinations and permutations, the teacher will be just as clueless as you with which menus to use and such), and we nerds WILL mock you.
Now, a slight retraction of my anti-Casio stance: four function calculators. Brand doesn't matter, get a Casio or a no name or whatever, it's all pretty much the same (pay attention to 8 vs 9 vs 10 digit displays but other than that, the physical size [they make huge ones and tiny ones, plus the awesome Casio calculator watch.
For serious calculators TI is the standard, with good reason.

For basic mathematics essentially the same, still includes some of the basic statistics functions as well but just not quite as good comparatively to the 36X Pro. I love that these calculators both run on solar power and I have never had an issue with either of them going dead. All in all a great calculator but just not quite on the same level as the 36X Pro which is another calculator in the same family. The nominal price difference makes it worth it to go for the 36X Pro.
I found that a full-fledged graphics calculator was too large and bulky to carry around, and a simple calculator didn't have a large enough screen. This calculator has the best of both worlds: simple to use, and a larger screen.
Texas Instruments has put a lot of effort into designing this calculator. It has an intuitive design: the buttons are large enough, the labels are clear, and the layout is perfect. It even comes with a handy cover with a quick guide on the back.
I just wish I had it in my high-school years.
The multi-line screen is great, but long lines extend to the right instead of wrapping to the next line like my old TI-85. I haven't been able to figure out how to look at the full line of previous entries either. I keep hitting the <> button under the + which is annoying, all of the basic + - x / operators feel like they're one button too high (again, the <> button pushes them up). The cover doesn't fit tightly and rattles so I just took it off completely.
All in all, not quite as nice as a TI-83/85 for basic use, but way cheaper.
