    In the Tests at a Glance section of the ETS Praxis site, they
    talk about being able to solve several problems on a graphics
    calculator: plot a curve, find the roots, do a numerical
    derivative, and do a numerical integration. So I am studying
    how to do each of these on a TI 84 in case they ask one or
    more on the exam.

    I bought several study guides and I agree they are not real
    helpful with calculator usage. The only guide that I think
    helps with this, and shows individual calculator keystrokes,
    is the one at www.praxisiimath.com

    Good luck,
    Sophie
