I think that more than the type of calorimeter you use, you need to understand how to do the calculations. Usually it will give you the amount of heat absorbed by the calorimeter, so you need to recognize that the system is losing heat. You take the negative of the heat absorbed by the calorimeter, and you have your value for q. You can then use the value of q and/or the formula q = mc(Tf-Ti) to solve the question.
