3 Websites For The Start Of The College Semester
With the start of the new college semester approaching, students should look at these websites to make their semester a bit easier and cheaper:
CampusBookRentals.com is an essential website for any college student. If you made the mistake of paying $500 for books in your first semester, then you unfortunately learned the hard way that the college books system is a scam.
Textbook companies and universities know that you need to buy books, no matter how expensive they are. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to buy the books new.
CampusBookRentals will search several websites to find the cheapest options available to you. You can either rent or buy used books and sell them back at the end of the semester. Either way, you’re saving money.
Professors require credible sources whether you’re writing about literature or physics. But some are more strict than others in terms of how you cite and list them.
Citationmachine.net helps you cite your sources in either MLA or APA for free. You just type in your information and the website will organize it for you. In some cases, all you need to enter is a website URL and it will find the information for you.
There will be times when you have to work on projects both from campus and from your room. When you do this, however, you’ll need to carry the project around with you.
Students used to do this with flash drives, until they realized that if you lose it, you lose all of your work with it. Then they tried emailing the file to themselves, but that’s too confusing when you edit it several times.
Dropbox is free cloud storage for college students. You just save your files on the website and then you can access and edit them from any computer.
These are just three of the many websites and apps out there to make your life easier. Stay tuned here for more helpful tips.
