    Does anyone know the reason that QWERTY calcs are banned from the tests? What is the real advantage of on like that, it's a pain in the butt yet still possible to type it one the regular one... also, I think that 92 has the same functions/software as the 89 just different hardware, not sure though.
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    It is interesting to note College Board's policy on the AP Calculus exam: the TI-89 is permitted, but not the TI-92. For them, exam question security is a large issue, and machines with a QWERTY keyboard permit fairly easy transcription of test items.
    Some tests are starting to disallow the TI89, too, because of its symbolic manipulation capabilities.
