    Most efficient calculator to use for Cal I and II?

    What calculator would you all recommend for Cal I and II? I have a TI-30xa, but dont know if I should bite the bullet and get a graphing calculator.

    I tried searching, so sorry it it's been asked and answered 10x10^100 times!

    More than likely your teacher won't let you use a TI-89 so a TI-84 will be good.

    TI-84 or TI-83..the 83 will be cheaper but not quite as good as an 83.

    i've been considering the nspire that converts to the 84. I honestly dont know if they're allowed or not.

    It all depends:

    Are you taking the AP or IB? Then, you definitely need a graphing calculator for the course since part of the exam requires one.

    Otherwise, you should ask your teacher if it's worth it.

    Hope that helps
