I assure you, calculators are VERY important for calculus. They should only be used as tool, however, blah blah blah.
Out of curiosity, have you even taken a calculus course?
And I might add, all TI calculators WITHOUT QWERTY keyboards, can be used on AP and SAT exams.
Troll_King: Their is a reason that TI doesn't make TI-85's anymore. They had the tendency to be.. wrong, when doing certain operations. I know some people who still use them becuase they like them (like my calculus teacher), but I would not use one nowadays.
