In this course, you will learn calculator shortcut methods, practical approaches, strategies and reverse engineering applicable especially for attacking multiple choice tests which are common in university admission exams, professional license exams, Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exams, GREs, quiz bowls and others.
If you are preparing for a professional license exam, the math portion is usually just 15 to 30% of the total points (Philippines); for Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (US), the number of math questions just ranges from 4 to 18 questions out of 110 multiple-choice questions; and similarly in other countries, math is just relatively small percentage of the total points in order to pass. Speed up your calculator skills, develop wiser strategies, study smart to save time during your review period and spend this saved time in reviewing other professional subjects and that will give you higher chances of passing an exam.
This course covers stuff related to Algebra, Trigonometry, Plane Geometry, Analytical Geometry, Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Differential Equations and Advanced Math.
Calculator function utilization, shortcut-equations and reverse engineering will be demonstrated in an MCT format followed by practice quiz.
Solve all quizzes to test your Casio Calculator mastery, I encourage that you work through all practice quizzes in a paperless manner in a way that will developed your calculator skills to solved math problems paperless!
Impress your friends, classmates, teachers and others with your Casio Calculator Kinjutsu!

Challenging quizzes… Anything goes… Nuff said
A background in math courses like algebra, trigonometry, plane geometry, analytic geometry, statistics, differential calculus, integral calculus, differential equations and advanced math
You should have at least any of these calculator models: fx-570ES, fx-570ES Plus, fx-115ES, fx-115ES Plus, fx-911ES, and fx-911ES Plus [Note: fx-911EX/fx-570EX Classwiz is more powerful due to additional fucntions and contains all features of the others but some of its functions are located differently (see your OPTIONS button for the majority of this issue) so the procedure won’t look exactly the same as presented in this course but the concept of solving the problems using the presented kinjutsu will remain the same, still applicable and can still be followed thru OPTIONS button in general, I hope you know what I mean]
You should have minimal experience with Casio Calculators
Common sense and intuition
