Calculator for IR Section Tue Jul 31, 2012 10:14 am
Does anyone know if the keyboard works for the calculator on the actual test? Or do we have to use the mouse to enter in numbers?

Thanks

No keyboard, mouse clicks only!

Keyboard works. Use the keyboard to save time. Moving the mouse and clicking numbers/symbols is irritating and time consuming.

@galak: I took the test a month back with IR and it worked. So you can count on me. The expert might have provided the information based on the rules/regulations.

I haven't taken the new test myself, I'm going from student reports, so it's possible they were mistaken! Thanks for the correction!
