I recommend Casio FX 95SG Plus if the school uses Casio models.

wow...got free one huh?? i only heard of it now.... :wink:

i also recommend the casio fx-95sg plus, the screen is bigger and the layout better
my gal's primary sch was using the sharp one, not as good as the casio.
accidently, came across the casio one, bought it for her only in sec 1.
she was complaining why don't her previous pri school recommended this instead of the sharp.
