I created a webpage for NCEES Approved Calculators in 2012, based on the NCEES website. If you click the image of a calculator, it links to Amazon, so you can easily compare prices between different calculators.

I brought two TI-36X Solar calculators to my PE exam. What calculator does everyone else use or recommend?

Thanks for the link. I'm running a Casio fx-115 ES for my primary and a TI-30X IIS as my backup. I used the TI for my EIT (i.e. "FE") exam a few years ago but after reccomendations from others on this site I found the Casio and love it. Very intuitive for me.


thanks,
Jason

I used the Casio fx-115ES PLUS on the FE exam. It did everything I needed it to. I"ll also use this calculator when I take the PE.

The Casio FX-115ES PLUS has some nice features and capabilities that the TI 30XIIS does not. I used the TI during the FE exam and the Casio during both the PE and both SE exams.

 

The best calculator is the one you know how to use efficiently so that during the exam, you're quickly and accurately calculating required values.
