When exam season rolls around, the last thing you want to do is scramble around to find all the info you need to study. Instead of stressing over simply getting your notes, study materials, and exam dates in order, you should concentrate on reviewing the exam material! To curb the stress that surrounds midterms and finals, use these apps to get organized.
Trello is like a digital to-do list perfect for creating a study plan. This app lets you create specific tasks, like “Review psych chapters 4 - 6,” and move it across a sophisticated to-do list so you can track your progress. Make lists of what you need to do, what you’re working on, and what you’ve accomplished.
With Evernote, you’ll never forget anything again. This expanded, mobile notebook syncs across all your devices. Plus, you can create notes from photos– so snap a picture of that diagram your professor shows in class, then search for it when you’re ready to review.
Not only does Boundless have affordable online textbooks for dozens of subjects, it also has integrated learning technology that’s proven to help students study more efficiently. Boundless has perfectly timed study reminders that will help you commit information to your memory for good, and your textbook tracks your progress so you can target the tougher concepts. Plus, Boundless summarizes the key points for every section of your reading so you can review the most important concepts quickly.
4. Google Calendar
Let’s be honest, we’ve all forgotten at some point to see a professor or meet a friend for lunch. But, forgetting an exam date could have very damaging effects on your GPA. When your professor announces an exam date, immediately stick it in your Google Calendar so it will be on your radar.
With these apps you’ll be better organized to tackle whatever exams throw your way.
