Study Helps

Everyone could use a little (or a lot) of help getting ready for tests, quizzes, or whatever you’ve got coming up in class.  Here are a few really good resources:

sgsStudy Guides and Strategies – This site has it all.  From tips on how to get the most out of studying, to time-management coaching, to how to become a master-memorizer, SG&S covers pretty much anything that you need to know for school success.

quizlet-logoQuizlet – Pure awesomeness for learning vocab and terms.  So much of what you need to know for your classes is vocab-based, so if you can get a lock on it you’ll do just fine.  Quizlet helps you do that – just make sure you attach an image to each term to make an even better connection.

vocab-com-logoVocabulary.com – Similar to Quizlet, Vocabulary.com provides tons of subject-specific lists.  Previous students have complained about it at first, but have praised it later.

Khan AcademyFantastic tutorials about lots of different subjects: mathkhan-logo-vertical-transparent,
science & engineering, computing, arts & humanities, economics & finance, and even some test prep.  And as with all of the resources on this page, it’s cheap-as-in-free.

purdue-owlPurdue OWL – The Purdue University Online Writing Lab.  One of the first, and still one of the best (maybe the best) online resources for all things writing.  If you’ve got a question about MLA, APA, grammar, punctuation, you name it, check it out.

math.com logomath.com – These guys have it all, from basic everyday math to calculus and advanced math.  It provides step-by-step tutorial for each concept, with practice at the end of each tutorial.
