So I'm also freaking about the IIC because I'm not doing so well in the Barron's. I'm just wondering, is it because their problems are too hard or do they cover a lot of stuff thats not on the actual test? Because I know the stuff that's in there.. I'm just wondering if I should waste my time stressing out over everything in the book, when i could focus in on a couple of topics? Can anyone who's taken the test give me some advice? Thanks. I also have the Kaplan book, is that better? Also, in my math class we really didnt use Ti-83's that much.. just sci calculators.. will I be at a great disadvantage if i dont use a ti-83, is it worth for me to try to learn how to use one six days before the test? Thanks so much.

You better learn quick, a graphing calculator is pretty much necessary for the mathIIc test. I bought a TI-89 the other day, and it helped me tremendously on the practice tests.

I barely used a graphing calculator. The only times you really need it for simple stuff like the "nCr" function for combinations, or graphing trig. functions to get the period/amplitude quickly.

Graphing calculator is far from necessary. When I took the IIC I was a big fan of my 83+ but it ended up disappearing or breaking before the test and so I had to use the dreaded 89 (dreaded at the time because I had never used it). Using the 89 for arithmetic I did well (800). Heck, I didn't even have know how to use the nCr and nPr buttons let along Solve( and Factor(, etc.
