Your organization skills are important, but having the right study materials and a tutor who can answer your questions, can make all the difference between a pass and a fail. Chegg is an app which helps you find resources to get your study on; you can search for textbooks (by title, author or ISBN), and borrow them or buy them directly through the app. You can also post questions and find experts' answers and, finally, even find yourself an online tutor.

This is an app with a really well-designed interface. It's easy to use, and has a great catalog that isn't missing a single thing. It's basically a very useful study resource, especially if you missed a few classes and you need to catch up with some notes on a particular topic, or if you're like a fish out of water, and really need to get some revision in, fast.


StudyBlue also gives you access to literally hundreds of different resources (some free, some for a fee) in a variety of study areas, but it also lets you take down your own notes in the format of your choice (either text, audio or photo).

You can also find your college or university in the app, and join groups for each of the subjects you take. That way, you can easily get in touch with your classmates and teacher, and gain access to any shared classroom material.
