We picked up some scientific Texet Fx500 calculators from Tesco last week for only 50p in Newbury. Not sure if store specific but there were plenty there. Came in some funky colours, got a bright green one on my desk and OH took several pink and green ones for her kids at school!

Voted hot. Just remember that for school use, most schools will have a "recommended calculator" - usually a Casio model - which is the one that the teachers know how to use. Some are quite strict on this, and won't spend time helping kids figure out how to use advanced functions on other calculators. Probably not a huge issue, but just something to consider if buying for this purpose!

Yes, that's true.

The Casio calculators really are the better than the others though, or at least used to be, for GCSE and A-level, the included functions and the natural display really do help in the exams, and cheap calculators never used to have these features. That's why the schools recommended them. Some of the other calculator manufacturers (like sharp) now have the same features but schools have stuck with casio.

As far as I can see the EVS (75p) is a clone of casio's natural display calculator so you probably could use it no problem for GCSE/A-level. The display and all the keys and key positions seem to be identical. If it really is so similar then it's a bargain for 75p as the casio ones normally start at £5.

agreed its just best to go casio if your in school, since say yours breaks, or you forget on an important day your replacement is most likely a casio so its best to use something your familiar with

I just looked at this calculator here and it really doesn't look as good as Casio or Sharp models - it doesn't have display the operation you are entering and this makes it more difficult to use for calculations with several stages, it doesn't look like it lets you choose the base of a logarithm (other than e or 10), it probably doesn't let you store multiple values in the memory, it certainly won't give answers as surds.


So if it comes down to this or no calculator, it is a super hot bargain, but if you want to take higher tier GCSE mathematics seriously it is worth paying the extra.
