Taking the Electrical PE in April for the second time....first time was 2001 when it was in essay form YUK!. Since Calc requirements have changed in 11 yrs and so has the exam format I would like to know which calculator is the forums favorite and why. I'm a HP guy and love my 48SX but can't use that one also purchased a HP 33S a few yrs ago to prep for the exam but don't care for it. So which one guys????
Since you are a HP guy, I take it you are fastest and most self assured with RPN. I would go with a HP in that case. I took in the 35S and the Fx-115ES and used the 35S in algebraic mode due to not having to look if a key entry registered and the right number of times due to the good key action of the 35S. Take in at least one alternate calculator for things you need it for. Learn to use all, but go with what is most comfortable.
Another thing I did, after reading the instructions carefully and finding I could take a compass and a straight edge, was to take both. The compass was a 180 degree one and the straight edge was a steel ruler. I thought that they would be useful if I came across a problem that I wanted to solve geometrically or I wanted to accurately draw something out. They turned out to be useful as bookmarks.
