Another calc that I'd strongly recommend is the TI-nspire CX CAS:
   It has never failed in a VCAA exam


Unfortunately for me, that was not the case. My TI-nspire CX CAS rebooted in my Further Exam 1, and I was stuck without it for a couple of minutes whilst waiting for it to reboot. Luckily I was still able to complete all of the questions, but it still has some defects that may occur to others.

Guys, does anyone know if a CAS calculator is broken?
I got a CAS Calculator Ti Inspire however when I open it, there is a long loading screen (for about half a minute)
Is this normal? Does it signify something broken? Worried because I need not to worry about such an error during the middle of an exam.
And if the the screen has like lots of line on the screen, does it mean that it is broken? (Happened once when it was charging and I opened it). But hasn't appeared since, but I'm still afraid it would pop up during a test/exam.
Thanks

Nah, that's fine. Generally you only see that loading screen when you haven't used your CAS in a while, with normal use, you'll never encounter that loading screen.

Ok!
Thanks for the comfort.
Was actually getting stressed out but I hope as I progress through the years, I will learn to use my CAS Calculator more :D
