For more than 15 years, a non programmable calculator was permitted and then just last week ACER announced that it will no longer be allowed.

Time to practice manipulating fractions, scientific notation, basic functions, etc.!

Thanks for the information and link. Since I am starting to prep this information comes in handy, guess I better start practicing. This should be fun Confused

Does anyone know of any practice sites that would be good to practice on? Or should I just pull out a book and start to practice formulas? Maybe someone knows of a excellent book that could help prep/practice with formulas.

It almost seems we rely too much on Calculators. Maybe this is a good thing that they don't allow them in the exam, it sends us back to the start so to speak to make sure we can actually do formulas and apply them correctly.
