|Documentation about Hp50g / 49g+ / 48gII and wikis|
Message #1 Posted by Pier Aiello on 9 Sept 2013, 7:06 a.m.
Maybe my questions are cyclic (i'm sorry but sometimes i don't have the right search words).
The first question:
What is the best reading list to learn how to master at least the built in functions of the hp 50g (and similar calculators like 49g+ and 48gII) ?
From my experience i can say:
1. the official user guide (the longer one), but it doesn't explain really well all the functions about a topic, in my opinion.
2. The official advanced user guide (AUR), that combined with the #1 can solve all the doubts. Alone the AUR is far to be enough for me.
For quick references
3. The official user manual
4. The quick training manuals done by HP itself.
What is yours? (given that my experience is really small here)
Moreover, Was that question already discussed here? Could you link me the previous discussion about this topic?
A wiki is a wonderful concept and can help a lot to explain better some things (if the community contributes) about the potential of a calculator (like Hp's ones), plus avoiding the redundancy that is frequent on a discussion place. Of course a wiki is not a substitute of a discussion place, but can be a "best of" of a discussion place.
I just see a topic about the wikipedia entry about HPprime ( named "HP-Prime article on Wikipedia") and i found two links to wikis that i didn't know.
From a rational and constructive point of view all calculators' communities should contribute on the same wiki (1), but i can understand that each community wants a unique wiki, so let's contribute to an HP only wiki. But there are a lot of them!
Just a search: "site:hpmuseum.org wiki" returns a lot of discussion with links to several wikis.
So the question is: what is the most known wiki about Hp calculators open to community members?
Is this: http://www.wiki4hp.com/ ?
(1) The best is wikipedia, but i think that wikipedia doesn't allow a lot of examples, quotes from discussions on other sites and so on. Wikipedia is too "serious" and strict even if it is wonderful.
