Where can I find an example of the on-screen NAPLEX calculator?

    I will be requesting a basic 4-function calculator just to make life easier but for the odd math problem that requires some scientific usage, I need to know how to use the on-screen calculator.

    Does anyone know where I can find something similar to the on-screen calculator to get a feel for it?

    Thanks.

    Edit: My bad, I forgot there was a NAPLEX section. You can delete this if you'd like.

    I didn't have a single kinetics problem, and maybe had two CrCl problems.

    Overall they were proportions and simple adding/subtracting. It doesn't matter what the calculator is like with simple math like that, just take your time and double check you punched the right buttons.

    You are not going to be required to calculate complicated kinetics like vancomycin or aminoglycosides. There simply isn't the time for it, and even if I did get a question like that (you absolutely will not), I would just take the hit to not waste time.

    I think the on screen calculator has the same configuration as a TI-84. I don't really remember. I also didn't have any kinetics questions.
