As we all know and remember, it is hard to be a student. Arguably, it is significantly harder to study today than it used to be because science keeps churning up new data that students must learn and there is so much information to process.
However, progress comes with its boons. In the 21st century, you are free (and even expected) to use cell phones and laptops in the class. Therefore it is essential to find the right software that will help you in your studies.
On top of word processors and student planners, there are many other helpful tools. We’ve tested and gathered only the best!
If you ever thought of getting research paper help, you will definitely benefit from Study Hippo. Most students struggle with their assignments because they aren’t confident enough about their abilities and don’t have a good example of how a particular type of work should be written.
Study Hippo has a huge database of samples available by subscription, so if you ever wondered, for example, how a descriptive essay should look like, it is a thing for you. Their database grows every week and includes collections of flashcards that have proven to be a very effective self-learning tool.
If you don’t think that your budget can handle subscriptions just yet, you can use their plagiarism checker for free and make sure the essay you have written is 100 percent original and not too heavy with quotes.
Even if you are not a calendar person, the college will make you one. Students simply must have a planner to keep on top of things and remember about deadlines, tests, and examinations.
Wunderlist is great for making timetables, checking out school assignments that have been dealt with, scheduling notifications and keeping the contact information of your classmates and instructors.

This one is a jewel in Microsoft’s crown. This app is available for laptops, iOS, and Android mobile devices and is extremely helpful for every student in high school or college.
With its help, you can take notes on mobile devices more efficiently, share them with your classmates, collaborate on notes together, and feature sound clips, links, videos, and any other pieces of information into your lecture notes.
It synchronizes across different devices and you can also access your notes via the web if you choose to store your data in the cloud.

If your instructor doesn’t use Edmodo, you can suggest this tool to them and your entire class will thank you!
