    CALCULATOR.
    If you have a graphing calculator, you may bring it to the exams. However, the best type to have for the exams would be a non-graphing scientific calculator. That will have all of the functionality that you will need.
    CELL PHONES.
    You should not have a cell phone on you during the exam. Please keep your cell phone in your backpack or coat and leave your backpack and coat near the wall of the exam room away from any seat.
    At your seat you should keep calculator, pencils, a personal note-sheet and RU-ID.
