Style Name: FX-85GTPLUS Black
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.

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

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!

Great for anyone who needs a descent, scientific calculator.
It functions well, and the battery life is quite long. I'd advise any one though to obviously turn the calculator off after use (shift, AC) to maintain battery life for as long as possible.

As an avid user of Casio calculators for over 30 years and having had my present one for 20 years, I was uncertain about this version. It was different to mine in too many respects: maybe I don't like new (to me) things. However this calculator is intuitive, displays the mathematical problem as you may write it on paper but only if you are careful to input it the same way. A bit of practise and I can't fault it. A younger person will find it very straightforward so I recommend it for any mathematicians , from GCSE to PhD. Didn't like it at first, but now a convert.

I used to own this exact calculator but without the solar panels. That one broke, and when looking for a new one I decided I wanted this one because I hate changing batteries. This does exactly what the other one did, but for a tiny bit extra it has solar panels, which is useful. It is quite a bit cheaper from Amazon than what the shops charge. These are the calculators to buy for almost everything, including GCSE and A level maths, so I would definitely recommend this.

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.

A good calculator that is accepted in almost all exams, including my university exams. I had to buy a new calculator since my other one was prohibited in exams, and this is a great replacement, and the solar power is good peace of mind that it will work even if the battery ran out on you. I feel some of the more useful buttons could be more prominent, for example pi is a sub function of another button. A great calculator though.
