RE: NCEES STRU I EXAM

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
John,
I guess FL is a little more lenient. In FL calculators must meet the
following criteria:
a) hand-held
b) self-contained
c) battery or solar powered
d) without peripheral equipment
e) without auxiliary memory capabilities or extended memory chips (** I
think this rule excludes some of the newer ones but I haven't read the specs
on all of the available calc's)
f) without a QWERTY keypad (~typewriter)
g) silent
h) non-printing

I think this was recently changed, because when I took the EI, we were not
allowed to use a programmable calculator.

In Illinois, depending on the proctor near your seat, programmable
calculators are not allowed.

A quick question for those who took the October NCEES Stru I exam: any
advice on whether an expensive HP or TI calculator is worth the investment?
I recently ordered the text/ref books previously recommended (THANKS!) but
was wondering about the new calc's available. I heard that they (hp48gx or
hp49g) were great if you were taking the civil; but, I don't personally know
anybody who has recently taken the stru exam. Any and all advise greatly
appreciated for my journey into misery (and hopefully success) next April.
:)
