If you're looking for a clear, straightforward explanation of the powerful HP-28C, then this is your book! Authors Loux and Coffin sort through the myriad features of this machine, giving you the pictures and the practice you need to make the HP-28C your favorite calculating tool.

The first several chapters bring you up to speed on the mechanics of operation – what keys you need to press to control and command the display, the stack, and the menus. You'll get lots of practice problems and explanations designed to get your fingers trained for action.

Then you go straight to the heart of the machine, exploring all the different information "objects" and how you can manipulate them, combine them, name them and (best of all) think about them. You'll see how HP's well-known stack-oriented (postfix) arithmetic becomes the engine behind all this math power, and soon you'll be harnessing it for yourself!

Then in brief separate discussions, this Easy Course touches upon specialized topics, such as symbolic algebra and calculus, plotting, and programming.

It's all in Grapevine's familiar Easy Course format, with Robert Bloch's illustrations – a book filled with examples, review questions, and quizzes, designed to let you work at your own speed (and your own speed will soon amaze you)! It's always a pleasant surprise that learning about a calculator can be this satisfying – but it can be, when the right explanations transforms a mysterious machine into a friendly and powerful tool.
