That depends upon how you used Mathematica and on what you mean by "the old fashion way". If you used a text such as the (electronic text) _Calculus & Mathematica_, by Davis, Porta, & Uhl (Addison-Wesley), you might even learn calculus *better* than if you learned it in a variety of old-fashioned ways. --Lou Talman
