"Brian, I remember feeling the same way when it was cram time for tests.  I can imagine that many others have felt the same.  What I have found is that it matters less which calculator you use than how well you can use it.  The three…"

Brian, I was wearing those same shoes many years ago.  I had a good mentor who helped me by handing me a HP48 with a COGO card in it, and a manual for both.  It was kind of like "take two of these and call me in the morning" kind of prescription for my "ailment".  I asked him questions along the way and he asked me questions along the way to mastering this calculation device.  Which device do you prefer to calculate with?
