Advanced, four-line scientific calculator, with higher-level math and science functionality, that is ideal for computer science and engineering courses in which graphing technology may not be permitted.
Ideal for students at every level, from junior high school algebra to college calculus, the Texas Instruments TI36 packs a lot of punch in a small, inexpensive unit. This solar-powered calculator combines features for statistical analysis, Boolean logic operations, and unit conversions in one sleek package.
Math students will appreciate TI36X's ability to perform fractional equations and calculate angle units (radians, grads, degrees) when performing trigonometric functions. Everyone will find the calculator's English/metric conversions helpful.
The TI36Xs single-line LCD is a little difficult to read when the unit is lying on a desk, and users in need of graphing functions will have to look elsewhere. Overall, however, for a calculator in this price range, the TI36X provides enough power for most high-level math and science needs.

Note: Even if you're not an engineering major, and you're just in high school or college, get this calculator! I started using my TI-84 plus CE in 8th grade and these types of calculators are a lifesaver. It'll help you in the long run and save you a lot of time and effort instead of using a scientific calculator. It has so many useful functions can really help you when you're on crunch time in an exam or something like that. 10/10!
IMO faster to use than the Casio 991 series with basically the same features.

But leaving that aside, this is a pretty good calculator, even though it's been around for years virtually unchanged. I've always used Casio in the past, but I can see how this has some advantages. It feels simpler to use than the Casio fx-991EX for instance. Not much, but things like the multi-press buttons are a clever way to avoid menus and always having to use the 2nd function key. You'll have to study the specs in detail to find out where the two models really differ, but I don't think the Casio can solve equations as directly as this. But then the Casio has the super clever QR-code generator that puts your results in a web page you can access with your phone and copy/paste into documents. Swings and roundabouts. Both have more features than most humans will ever comprehend.
I also think the Casio looks more stylish (this TI is borderline ugly to my eyes) and Casio's slide-on case feels faster and sturdier than the annoying and rattly clip-on case the TI comes with. On the other hand, on the TI, both the case and the calculator have non-slip rubber feet which makes it better to use on a desk. The Casio has a faster keyboard that I find hard to fault, but some may prefer the slightly more positive action of this TI.
Their displays are about the same, which is to say not all that good because of the solar power. The Casio's might have more dots. Both have battery backup, but the Casio's battery is easy to get at in its own little compartment whereas you have to screw off the whole back cover to get at the one in the Texas.
The point is that both this TI-36X Pro and the equivalent Casio are very highly developed and capable calculators that are as advanced as you'll probably be allowed to take into an exam and only one step below a graphing model. If you're using it in class, you might want to see what everyone else is using so you're not the odd-one-out when the tutor explains something that needs a calculator. Schools might even recommend one over the other.
But a big part of the decision might be the price. The TI-36X Pro was much cheaper than the Casio when I bought it. If they were the same price, I would buy the Casio. But I'd be happy with either.
If you don't need a graphing calculator you'd be hard pressed to find a better scientific calculator than this. If it wasn't for my personal preference for RPN, I'd use it all the time.
It feels much more solid than my casio calculators and the button have a nice action that has a quality feel to them. This calculator is often show with the clip on case attached to the back of the calculator, giving it a odd look with the tab stuck out at the top. This is part of the covr that you cann clip onto the back or front when not using the device to protect it, the pictuee here does not show it.
