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.

Another AMAZING thing (because we're on AMAZon.com), is that after you solve for things in the solver, or you do the linear fit on your statistical data (as an example). The calculator actually saves the variables from their respective solvers into the variables. So after you've solved for things, all your solutions are in the variables. IE, you solved for t in the solver => go back to stack, and the variable t will have THE number in it. Calculator also remembers the history and the variables when turned off. It's intuitive and simple.
My only gripe is that when editing it defaults to the "replace" method, instead of "insert". I usually need to insert things when redoing calculations, not replace things. It's an extra keystroke, it's a minor gripe in comparison to how much easier it is to use than the competition on all other counts.Read more ›
I originally reviewed a TI-30XS Multi-View and a Casio FX-115ES when I took the Professional Engineer exam because they were the only ones available at the time that I could use without too much difficulty. I took 3-4 months before the exam to familiarize myself with the calculator before I took the actual exam. I felt the Casio FX-115ES was far superior, although the TI-30XS MV had a much cleaner interface and a sensible layout. But the FX-115ES was very easy to use once you got used to the menu/layout as Casio hasn't changed its scientific calculators very much over the years. Many of the features I favored in the FX-115ES were not available in the TI-30XS MV such as complex numbers and handling matrices, and even working with different base numbers.
The TI-36X Pro seems to have resolved many, if not all, of the TI-30XS MV shortcomings. Had the 36X Pro been available in late 2008, I would have most likely used it for the exam along with my FX-115ES as a backup calculator. The 36X Pro interface/layout is similar to the TI-30XS MV which makes it easy to use.
The answers default in approximations (decimals) versus exact numbers (fractions) with the FX-115ES. This makes it easier for engineers since I always had to press the convert key on the FX-115ES.
The TI-36X Pro treats complex numbers the same way as the FX-115ES, just make sure to set it in the Complex mode for polar or rectangular values.Read more ›

The TI-36X Pro is one of 4 calculators I recently purchased after the untimely demise of my TI-35X. In addition to the TI-36X Pro I bought a Sharp EL-506X, Casio fx-115ES PLUS, and HP-35s. These models represent the latest technology from the industry leaders. While each has its peculiarities they all (except for the HP) exemplify the dramatic change the industry has undergone in the past 10 years. The HP-35s, in contrast, is a throwback to the classic RPN calculators of the 80s.
In short, the TI-36X Pro is not for me as a working professional. It does however offer a lot for students. I rated the product 3 out of 5 stars because it does not meet my needs. Read on for details.
Students need a good scientific calculator to serve as both a learning tool and an exam taking tool. The TI-36X Pro is packed with features that make it effective for both. I've highlighted some examples below that may be particularly useful to students.
Direct algebraic entry - Allows students to enter equations the way they're written. This is not as efficient as RPN but works nicely with the dot matrix display.
Scrolling history - Use scroll keys to move your cursor to access previously entered expressions and results. This makes equation editing and generating new results quick and easy.
Equation solvers - Solvers are provided for numeric, polynomial (2nd and 3rd order), and systems of linear equations (2x2 and 3x3).
Expression evaluator - Enter an expression using numbers, functions, and variables, then evaluate the expression to get a numeric result.
Statistics - A rich set of functions is provided.Read more ›
