A few people have asked me for examples of questions from my calculus exams that were done with/without calculators. Here are a few 
NO CALCULATOR ALLOWED
Integrate : x^3 ln x dx sin x cos x dx xe^x dx from 0 to 1 1/(x^2 + 1) dx from 0 to 1
Use Taylor series to find
lim (x>0) [ (SQRT(x+1)  1)/x ]
CALCULATOR (TI92) ALLOWED
Convergence of series : SUM [ n/(n+1) ] SUM [ (1/2)^n ]
Volume of revolution problem ...
Find total mass of ash from Mt. St. Helens eruption within 100 meters given density of ash d(r) = 2000/(1+r^2) kg/square meter r meters from center
Solve : dy/dx = x^2 y^2
This was not the entire exam, but these problems are representative.
