It sounds like a plain old scientific or four-function should serve you well. Personally, I use the Casio - fx115ES Plus Scientific calculator. I remember that AP Chem in high school didn't really need a graphing calculator, so I suppose that's why Chem 14A doesn't necessarily require one, either.
If you're a Texas Instrument type of person, I would suggest to get the TI-30XIIS. That was the calculator I used in AP Chem and in my opinion it is the best non-graphing scientific calculator to get. Other than that I use the TI-BAII Plus as of right now, not a huge fan of it because it is mainly used for economics and not science related subjects so I am most likely going to switch back to the TI-30XIIS.
I'm just using my old Casio fx-300MS that I used when I took AP Chem my sophomore year. I guess it's just based on personal preference and I don't think that they are going to be really picky about what type of calculator you use, it just can't be graphing.
The scientific calculators that you are able to use in this class must not be able to graph or be able to be programmed. I paid $15 for mine, so I assume that anywhere from $10-$15 is a reasonable price for a calculator.

I have the same calculator. I did ask to make sure if its alright and the response was a yes because it is not a graphing calculator. So to answer your question, it is alright for a test.
As long as it is not a graphing calculator you will be all good I guess. Mine was TI36x pro, and I’ve used it for many other classes that say “ no graphing calculator” in their syllabus. :) however I am not 100% sure, I hope it will work for this class!
