Could be more legibly printed. I feel a little guilty giving this book a four-star review since the others went with so may five-star ratings.
Having only just begun to study the book I'm in no position to evaluate it's merits, but I can fault it on one score, legibility.
I'm 62 and need bi-focals. The text in this book is slightly smaller than usual and the printing is a little light. Further, the math samples themselves are even tougher to see. No problem for a young person but certainly the publisher should have given more attention to legibility. Remember that the text adequate for a celebrity diet book is not the same required of a tech book.
From the reviews, I'm sure the book will prove a great help but I can't give it that fifth star while straining to see it.
Just something for people with failing eyesight to bare in mind.

a really great book for learning the TI-84 Plus CE. I have never owned a graphing calculator. This book has helped me tremendously with my TI-84 Plus CE. I don't know what I would have done otherwise. Maybe frantically searching the internet for how-to guides? Having this book is much cleaner, much nicer and way easier than doing all that!

I had a TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator and at first I don't know how to use it. I thought of searching at Amazon if there's a book that teaches people how to effectively use a graphing calculator and I found one. This is a very essential book if you wanted to use a graphing calculator for Calculus. Glad I found it! Now I am maximizing the use of my graphing calculator. I would like to recommend it.
