Christopher is an authority on programming calculators from Texas Instruments. He writes for the beginners and for the advanced users. I've gotten a lot of interesting and useful knowledge about these wonderful equipment. And also I took ideas for programming the other great family of Texas Instruments, 89s, 92 Plus and Voyage 200.

I really appreciate this purchase because the content is very useful to me and because I got two books for the same price, the printed one and the electronic one. Yes, if you buy the printed book, you get a code to download the ebook from the publisher, for use it permanently.
