Calculators ..

For the university students out there, do you think its necessary to get a new expensive graphing calculator for university or is a regular sharp or casio one okay? For programs like business and science do they even allow you to use calculators?

Most calculus/math classes you're not even allowed calculators in exams. And for most other classes you are not allowed graphing calculators in exams (non-programmable calculators only). I use my old graphing calculator from high school for homework because I like the bigger screen. Occasionally I can use it in an exam.

We're not allowed to use anything other than the Casio fx-991MS calculators on tests/exams.

Beats me. I already had a Casio fx-991MS from high school though so it suited me fine.

graphing calculators are a waste of money. just use wolfram alpha.

there are some math courses that allow calculators, but they will sometimes make you get a specific model. so i'd wait til then.
