Only the administrating Educational Services Officer (ESO) can approve the use of a personal calculator for the Navy-Wide Advancement Exam (NWAE). When in doubt, be sure to show the calculator to the ESO days before the exam is administered. DO NOT wait until exam day!

-- What calculator features are permitted?
Solar- or battery-powered, hand-held electronic calculators of any key configuration may be used so long as they are not capable of displaying only a single line of numeric and mathematical characters. Graphing calculators, calculators capable of displaying running text, mini-laptop computers, and similar items supporting information storage and retrieval are not authorized. Each candidate must provide a calculator for their own use.
Additionally, examination proctors shall determine that your personal calculator is for mathematical use only and cannot be used for retrieving or storing text. Seabee ratings are not authorized to use preprogrammed construction, electrician, plumbing and other calculators designed specifically for tradesman use (such as Construction Master IV). Engineering Aid (EA) candidates are authorized to use general scientific calculators that are not programmable.

Also, calculators assigned in A school may not be permitted for use during the NWAE.
Again, when in doubt, check with your ESO.
