    The only allowed instrument for the PCAT is a No.2 pencil.

    You cannot use a calculator so it is super important to practice problems without one. I became a math tutor and that really helped me. I can't believe how much math I forgot. Tutoring makes you review everything and helps you remember it when you are helping others.

    Yep! you can either bring a graphing calculator or a scientific one. but it has to be one of those invisible ones that can solve problems in your head. You can;t bring the old 2010 kind where you have to push button and stuff

    hahaha, good one. but on a serious note, I know ppl who couldn't even take a calculator into the building, so don't even try!

    some people were trying to solve questions during the break with calculator i suppos, but anyways... ridiculous
