A Little Better Than Okay
on April 6, 2009
I am a novice to programmable calculators.And I have to say, the book was written a little better than the HP 50g user's manual, and I often get a headaches reading this book.
But I did learn some things from this book --directly and indirectly. Here's what I learned directly from this book: RPN, Number Format, CAS Modes, Equation Writer, and Equation Solver. While I was reading this book I also found some incredible features. Such as factoring expressions like 3x^3+14x^2+17x+6 to (x+1)*(x+3)*(3x+2)and vice versa.
The calculator is impressive, and this book did introduce me to some awesome features.
If the book had more graphical illustrations and more examples, I would give it five stars. Because I was often lost just reading the texts.
