Using Mathem.. to learn calculus? or Statistics?

Dear all,
I am a student in College Calculus and am wondering if Mathematica is a
useful tool for learning the subject matter.  The company Lit. says
that it is, but...
I would like to hear input/experiences from any non-math geniuses who
have used the program as a learning aid.  Is the learning curve for
Mathematica high?  Is Calculus Wiz a worthwhile program?  Have you
continued to use Mathematica after you were finished with school?

Thanks,
Phil
