Which calculator?

At the university I'm taking my physics bachelor, only these calculators are allowed on exams:

Casio FX-82
Hewlett-Packard HP-30
Texas Instruments TI-30

So which could you reccomend?

Btw, aren't these calculators somewhat "archaic"? Also, is it common not being allowed to use graphing calculators/more advanced calculators at university level?

Thanks

I've always been under the impression TI makes nice stuff. Personally, I like my TI-34 II, although I don't know how close it is to the TI-30.

any calculator that can do scientific notation, exponentials, logs, and trig will be good enough.

We are not allowed to use graphing calculators at all at my university.

Really there's no point anyway.

Cscott, I have the TI-30 and TI-34 II, the TI-34 II is wonderful and is good for basic math and trignometry and calculus.Sony, for physics I would use TI-30. It is also good, but very simple. Will you need complicated functions?

I guess you didn't notice that cscott's posting is about three and a half years old. :smile:
