They're really helpful, actually. I can do the things I do on regular calculators--usually, as mentioned, the AP Calc test strongly recommends using one, because they have functions of raw evil that need integrating--but there's something very refreshing about being able to bind K, e0, G, and lots of other constants to various letters. I still remember 1/4pie0, 8.85 x 10^-12, and 6.67 x 10^-11, but having them programmed makes it easier.
