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.
