Saw this at my local ASDA. Reduced from £9 which is also the current online price, though pretty sure I have seen them cheaper in Argos and other retailers. Didn't buy one but took a picture.

The Casio FX-83GTPLUS is the UK's best-selling scientific calculator. Allowed in every UK exam where a calculator can be used. Suitable for use from Key Stage 3, 4 and above and recommended for GCSE, A/AS level, Standard and Higher. Provides 260 functions and is battery powered (AAA batteries, included). Large 10+2 digit display. Auto power off. The Natural Display (Natural-V.P.A.M.) shows mathematical expressions like roots and fractions as they appear in your textbook increasing comprehension because results are easier to understand. Hard plastic 'slip-on' and 'removable' case included.

College, University, and for exams, and for home use

Batteries literally last forever which makes the solar version a waste of money in case anyone was thinking it would be good to have.

I have had two Casio scientific calculators in the last few years and they have both been a bit of a pain to use, and eager to tell me 'syntax error' whenever I press a wrong key. Several useful, often used functions such as reciprocal and +/- need more than one key press and don't have a dedicated button.

They seem designed to be used in schools to teach maths rather than to be a useful tool for a person who needs to do maths at work and doesn't need a pedantic calculator to teach him the subject..

they do have a dedicated reciprocal button.....

If you can't get the syntax right on this calculator, good luck with others....

Helps you to get many more marks.

Perhaps it is just you?

This is a better choice for the long term, most universities don't accept anything above fx-83 or 85 I believe.

As an Alevel maths student this is wrong, as the are unable to solve many types of equations which the Casio Fx-991es plus can.

My college pretty much forces you to use one as it save valuable time in exams.
