If you need a calc, just take the best, for your great success! However,... Today many students overuse CAS and so much power in their hands. Schools and univs. teach students to use Mathematica and how to rely (heavily) on software (at least in Europe). I don't know maybe in Asia, it is different. Well, time has changed really. But,... time ago, during all my studies, calculators were forbidden for exams and as well for laboratories. I have been really lucky that this was like that. No computer, no calculators, sometimes just something enough to make a cos, sin and tan and +*/. Maybe this is probably the reason that I liked maths so much, and that I became good at it No calc, the best of the best really.
