Bottom of p. 103 where it talks about editing the elements of a matrix using the matrix editor, it says

"In the middle, the contents of the matrix are shown. You can move the cursor over any element and press [ENTER] to edit that elementÂ’s value. Type in the new value, which appears at the bottom of the screen, and press [ENTER] again to store the value into the matrix element."

This requires pressing [ENTER] twice: once to enter "edit mode," and again to store the new value. But I find that (on my TI-84 anyway) I can just type the new value (without pressing [ENTER] first) and then press [ENTER] to store. It saves an extra [ENTER] press, anyway.

An excellent point. This doesn't work universally on all TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus calculators, hence its omission, but it might be a good trick to include in a callout to speed up TI-84 Plus users' workflow.
