Either you are good at
English or you are good at math. There are apps to help both. First, there is
one called MathWay that helps you solve math problems. It shows you step by
step instructions on how to solve mathematical problems and allows you to check
your answers when you are through. It ensures that you reached the right
answer, and that the route you took to get your answer was correct.
For the English essay writer who probably should know how to write a critical analysis essay step by step, an awesome tool for you is EasyBib. Simply enter the book title and EasyBib puts your citations in MLA or APA format then all you need to do is cut and paste it to your paper. This eliminates the struggle of having to figure out how to write the citations correctly in the format the professor wants to see. It does all the hard work for you.
Another awesome app to
download for free is Evernote. This app helps to keep track of notes from
class, takes voice memos, and creates to do lists, all without a pen and paper.
You can retrieve your notes while away from your computer. To go along with
that app is StudyBlue. It's probably the best college app you can have. It
takes notes you have made in Evernote and turns them into flashcards and
quizzes for quick fun and easy studying. This app also sets reminders, and
keeps your study materials organized.
SparkNotes is a good app
for making quick work of a chapter that you just didn't understand. It
summarizes the chapter and helps to quickly make sense of study materials that
just didn't make sense before. It is safe to say that it can also be used in
replacement of reading a chapter, but this is not recommended as you may miss a
highlight that is important.
iHomework is a great
tool for organizing your busy schedule. This app keeps your course schedule,
keeps your assignment deadlines, and will alert you when an exam is coming up.
This app is available only on iOS. For the Android, Studious is available with
the same functions. It keeps track of class schedule, future exams and upcoming
homework. This app will also silence your phone automatically during scheduled
class time. You can also program a study schedule with this app.
There are so many apps out there. Some are good, and some are not so good. These free
apps are to assist the college student to have better time management by
getting to class on time, getting the work done first that needs to be done
first and turning educational struggles into success.
