Useful Tools Not Just for Students
Gina at Lifehacker listed Top 10 Back to School Tools for the Organized Student. Among them, I found some are also useful for non-students:
- Cornell Method Notepaper PDF Generator. Check also the advantages of keeping an analog work journal and how to take great note.
- BookFinder.com Textbook Deal Search. Not just for textbooks of course. I also use AddAll.com and its used books search, since it covers some bookstores thay are not included in BookFinder
- Google Scholar/Google Books Search
- Software For Starving Students. Here you can download a bundle of free/open source softwares. If you don’t need all of them or you want to get the latest version, you can download the installation file from its official website. Another two sites are also worth visiting, where they give a short description for each software and the OS systems it supports:
For student organizer, I also mentioned the desktop version, Schoolhouse 2 (Mac), before, while web-based organizer and note taking are also quite popular, e. g. Notely.net, notesake and mynoteIT.
