Our recommendation!

If the cost of a new calculator is too much of a stretch on your pocketbook, you can purchase other variations of this calculator from Craigslist or Ebay for less than half the cost of our recommended calculator. Heck, you might have a sibling who owns one or maybe your parents have a TI-84 variant still floating around at home--these durable calculators last forever! As long as it has 'TI-84' in it's name, its buttons and functionality are almost 100% identical.
