You can do so using store function. do any calculations. The SHIFT+(-) i.e; STO sign appears. Now assign this value any variable say X. Now, you can do 1.025*X etc and you get the value. In this way you can store as many formulae as possible.

There is one more trick but it is a bit complicated

Hurting @Sada in any way is a punishable offence. You are under arrest

@chuckofalltrades Good comics. This one was one of your best. Waiting for engineering drawing comics

Do not forget to have a panel of topo and the jugaad during the final submission of SHEETS

@Issue : You know several of those tricks, yeah?

Hehe yes. But not several only 2. During the first year, I was the only student who did not own mobile phone. a typical nerd you can say!

While my friends were busy exploring their newly bought cell phones, I experimented out with the calculator.
Quite handy for doing numerical. No body knows how I remember so many formula

P.S: "Formula storing" were among the first tricks that I discovered.

Have done this all the time whenever I was little nervous about the exam.

Another one, a friend of mine in class used to take 30 to 40 additional sheets for an exam on average. embarrassing feeling when you're sitting two rows back of him. Can't even figure out what he's writing. He should have become a doctor.

@The_Big_K and @Punch_a_Tantra What his wand is to Dumbledore (read *Bawaji*), it is a calculator to an engineering student #The_Pensive

i have experienced the second panel many a times.

as for the last panel, there are no girls at all in the first place in the mechanical department of my college, and i am that genius, who often ends up doing the experiment solo, while the remaining guys discuss IPL, and do not even hold the wires !!!!

no one knows how the calculator can be used like that, but it is something worth doing a research on

Nice comic.

I feel very bad, when I'm just thinking about questions and choosing which ones to appear for and people ask for extra sheets! I tell myself that they must be having real big hand writing and are leaving one line each time while writing.

I had different exam experience though! The 'chit' was passing around and i was 'in-route' for two other people passing chits. As soon as the chit was passed to me, the invigilator popped up , panic button was pressed and I 'stuck' the chit to the underneath of writing desk and I could never retrive it back

.. the whole class grudged me thereafter,
