AFAIK in Germany (NRW to be precise) it was (or a specific TI Calculator) the only type allowed to be used in the Abi (Final exams) and all of the course material was based around the TI Model. As a parent you were not "Forced" to buy one, but if all of the materials use it, only that type can be used in the Finals exams, then you have no choice ....

Pretty clever marketing.... it not exaclty moraly sound... but hey... were money is concered its very rare that morals are anywhere in the vicinity Laugh | :laugh:
