    Very disappointed. Even at the beginning of the book, steps are skipped or the instructions read like this: "to do x you have to do y and z" and it never tells you how to do y and z. It often refers to figures that include 3 screen shots from the calculator, but it doesn't always tell you how to get to those screenshots. A lot of the "learning" occurs through trial and error, which is how you'd be figuring this device out without the book anyway.

    This book is very poorly laid out and written. The information

    This book is very poorly laid out and written. The information is poorly explained and fragmented. The index is no help. If you already know how to use the TI Nspire it has information that may help you but if you are new to the TI Nspire reading this book and trying to figure out how it works is an exercise in frustration. Not recommended.
