I bought this scientific calculator for my 15 years old daughter in preparation of her GCSE. It seems to be quite popular with that age group. They knlow exactly what they want and it serves them well for their purpose. There is another model of this calculator, however this model is more desirable due to the additional power source from its solar panels built into it. She is quite pleased with it.

I'm old enough to remember my maths teacher, in the 1970s, showing us his newly purchased Sinclair Scientific calculator (I expect he saved a few pounds by buying it as a self-assembly kit). It was amazing then to see such a small device which could calculate sines, square roots, etc, and it must have cost around £60 then.

Today the price of this Casio model is not much more than a pack of cigarettes (not that I buy them these days) - whereas in the 1970s I estimate that you could have bought perhaps 200 packets of 20 (e.g. Rothmans Kingsize) for the price of one Sinclair Scientific calculator!

I bought this Casio FX-85GTPLUS for my son, who needs it for GCSE maths. He is very happy with it. It does everything he needs, it is sure to be reliable, and it arrived promptly. It's slightly larger than I expected, which is not a problem; when using it, the grey sleeve does not need to be slid down as shown in the picture.

This is perfect for my A-Level maths and further maths but would be great for GCSE work as well.

About 4 months ago, I decided that my previous calculator needed updating (quite an old Casio model) & wanted to find a scientific calculator suited to A level examinations. Although i must admit, the Casio FX-85GTPLUS was not the calculator I originally wanted to go for. I ended up buying the Casio FX-85ES after reading various reviews & the price was very reasonable. However, I received through the post the Casio FX-85GTPLUS model instead...Emailed the company I bought it from, & they explained that the FX-85ES model was discontinued/out of stock.
I decided to keep this calculator and boy am I glad I did!

Firstly, I found the calculator very easy to use... the buttons are very clear & I liked the fact that Casio have added the orange AC and OFF buttons..adds a bit of colour to the calculator! I presume it will attract a lot of young teens or those studying for their GCSE's/A levels :)
The calculator also does a lot of the work for you... the calculator has the ability to change decimals into root form which comes in handy, & I find the fractions button on this calculator a lot easier (and quicker) to use than on my old calculator.
The Casio FX-85GTPLUS is also solar-powered which should make it very long lasting!

However as I said previously, the calculator does all of the work for you, so for me (an A level Maths student), it's quite easy to become dependent solely on your calculator to convert e.g. decimals into fractions, when really it should be application of your knowledge of the work as well. Also, the plasticky, cheap feel of the calculator might put some people off..

I would still definitely recommend this calculator to anyone... although I think it's definitely geared towards GCSE/A level students more than anything.

Just bought this for A level maths, as an upgrade on an earlier model (which is still working fine but this one has more functionality). Perfectly happy with the calculator itself.

However, if you're buying this check out Tesco's first (I obviously didn't).
I paid £7.81 through Amazon (from Indigo) and just seen it in Tesco's for £5.00.

i've had an old casio for years, which did the job very well, but as a maths tutor, the pupils were starting feel it was a bit archaic, whereas this is the current school recommended calculator, so they feel instantly comfortable and know exactly how to use it. It is very straight forward, everything is entered exactly as you read it. my only gripe is that all decimal answers come out as a fraction to begin with - but it only takes a press of a button to convert them.

I bought this to replace my old Casio which I've had since school, 25 years ago! Has all the same features as my old one & a few extras plus a nice big LCD panel. A great price & quick delivery!

I ordered two of these on Saturday afternoon- one for each of my boys. Very impressed that they were outside or door on Sunday morning. Sadly one of them did not work (0 button not functioning) and we needed them urgently for school exams. Amazon great on replacing however although we are still waiting for the delivery of the replacement. Hence calculator itself is great and what the school recommends- but given a 3 star in the circumstances.
