Please review the Calculator Policy prior to examination day. A listing of approved and not approved calculators is included in the policy.

It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure their calculator is approved prior to the exam, either by being indicated on the approved list or by obtaining approval from ASET. If a candidate does not obtain approval prior to the exam, their calculator may be deemed inadmissible and prohibited from the exam.

Candidates can email ASET at exams@aset.ab.ca with their make and model number of their calculator that they wish to bring to the examination to determine eligibly.

A formula sheet is provided by Yardstick on the day of the exam.
