Is the TI-89 calculator permitted on the AP Calculus exam?

Making a quick check here because I've heard different things. I'm most comfortable using a TI-89 calculator, so I just wanted to confirm: can we use the TI-89 on the AP Calculus exam or should I start getting used to a different model?

No, the TI-89 calculator is not permitted on the AP Calculus exam. The College Board, which oversees AP exams, has a specific policy prohibiting the use of calculators with advanced algebra systems like the TI-89 and others with similar capabilities. It's recommended that you get used to a different model that is allowed. Acceptable calculator models typically include the TI-83 and TI-84 series. The list of approved graphing calculators is available on the College Board’s AP Calculator Policy page. It's important that you familiarize yourself with an approved calculator as soon as possible since knowing how to use your calculator efficiently can be quite advantageous for the test. Calculators are allowed on one of the two sections of the exam, and having a good grasp of its functions can help you solve problems more quickly and accurately.
