If you buy a calculator, give yourself enough time to practice using it before the test. The school will not be issuing calculators to students. If you do not bring your own calculator, you will still be able to use the Online FSA Scientific Calculator included with the exam. You can practice using the calculator tool by going to http://fsassessments.org and clicking on FSA Resources to the right, then FSA Scientific Calculator in the middle of the page, or simply click here > FSA ONLINE CALCULATOR
