I just wanted to make a quick post to share 7 free resources for college students that I think you should use.
You’ve probably already used some of this. If you haven’t then you’re missing out.
1. Rate My Professors
Never… ever… ever… ever sign up for a class before giving this site a shot.
Bad teachers leave their mark like the plague. Dead students have to get dragged out of their classrooms at the end of the year. (Okay… metaphorically speaking.)
If you’re paying for your class then pay for the one that doesn’t suck.
2. Easy Bib
I’m not a big fan of boring stuff.
Writing and checking proper bibliographies is boring. This site can make that process slightly less painful.
It still sucks but significantly less.
3. Khan Academy
Okay… I’m a sucker for RPGs.
Learning on Khan Academy is sort of like playing a game. It’s that, except 12 hours later, when you realize how long you’ve played you won’t feel like a complete schlub.
This is an oldie but still reasonably goodie.
It can be your alternative to the next site on this list. I usually use these two sites as a two part combo for crushing basic review of a subject.
Yes… Wikipedia is way better than your textbook. (Studies have even shown it’s accuracy is nearly the same.) Naturally, you’re going to find biased articles. You’re going to find incorrect information. That being said, going into the site knowing the limitations and you’ll find one of the most complete and quick resources on any subject.
I forgot my graphing calculator… again.
Wait… I never even had one.
7. Free Amazon Prime
I hope I don’t have to explain how awesome Amazon is. Competitive textbooks. Good prices on pretty much anything. With two day shipping it’s even better.
And… it’s free… why the hell not?
Okay… this was a quick one but this is pretty much 4 years of college education.

Thousands of students read Smart Student Secrets – not much of a secret anymore, right?
Do you want to your free copy of my book that shows you 101 Strategies To Improve Your Grades Without Studying More?
It’s called How To Never Study Again (or HTNSA by the locals.)
Does that mean you never study again? I hope you keep studying. That’s not the point.
The point: studying is only one tool in a successful student’s toolbox.
This book teaches you how student’s around the world are learning more and actually enjoying the process. It’s not magic. It’s for students ready to take themselves up to the next level.
Get it. Learn more. Study Less.
