Did the calculator on the exam have these keys? I mean the one that is a part of the exam that you can use.

Hi Aline,

That's a good question - one I'm not sure I know the answer to. However, you should be able to answer all mathematical questions on the exam without the use of those keys.

Is there a practice question that you've ran into that would necessitate those keys?

I _think_ I recall each of the memory function keys being present on the calculator (May 2014). But I do remember not having to use them at all. I mean, even if you did need the memory function keys you could simply jot down the figure on paper. As for the power function keys, you won't need them. I would be very surprised if you did.
