HP35 Calculators Loaded with 15+ Land Surveying Programs
NLC’s HP35 is loaded with every program you need!
NLC’s fully pre-programmed HP35s has all the land surveying applications you need for school, standardized tests, or the field. Each calculator is programmed, updated, and verified so you can begin using it from day one.
NCEES, which administers both the Fundamentals of Surveying and Principles/Practice of Surveying, only allows a limited number of calculators to be used during the exam.
Test takers can either use non-programmed (basic) calculators or use HP33s or HP35s programmable calculators. For a full list of machines, click here.
HP33s and HP35s calculators are allowed to be used because they are programmable, but they (1) have no QWERTY keyboard, (2) cannot communicate with other machines, and (3) have no recording functions.
Fully Loaded with Useful Surveying Programs
NLC’s pre-programmed HP35s comes fully loaded with all the surveying programs you need to pass on exam day!
Pre-loaded programs include:
Triangles / COGO / Proportioning / Unit conversions / Point / Line / Intersections / Curves and more.
All programs are thoroughly tested and verified to work. Every calculator undergoes a 20 point inspection to confirm the programs are loaded correctly and ready to use on day one.
If you still have questions, a comprehensive FAQ is at your fingertips, and Dr. Nettleman’s personal phone number is included with every purchase.
