I feel like I have to warn you, this is completely a “non-math” post. (I know, I know…If you really need your math fix today, how about this post about the quotient rule? or this list of ways a math tutor can be helpful?)
Back to the post at hand: I’m betting that a lot of my readers are students. In fact, from what I can tell, a lot my readers are SERIOUS students. You want to succeed at whatever it is you are trying to do, and you are willing to put the work or research into things to make it happen!
While most of these sites focus on college, there is still good information for high school or homeschooling students. If you are planning on going to college, understanding things like CLEP tests and how to pick a class are things to start thinking about.
- Study Hacks – Run by a computer scientist who wrote the books “How to Win at College” and “How to be a High School Superstar”, this blog covers life goals and academic success. I like articles like “How to be a Math Wiz” (short, sweet, and so very true!) and “How to Cure Deep Procrastination“.
- Campus Splash – This site is all over the place yet entertaining and informative. Right along side silly/fun articles about not embarrassing yourself at a party, you will find very valuable articles like “What the HECK is the CLEP test?“. (Hint: The CLEP test is one way I saved a ton of money and finished my bachelors in just under 3 years)
- Chegg Blog – Chegg is the first company I saw take textbook rentals mainstream. Since then, a lot of colleges and publishers are trying to do the same thing. (BTW renting your textbooks saves a ton of $$). Turns out they also have a blog! I’m a sucker for articles with great tips, so I have to link to “Ten Habits of Successful College Students“
- College Info Geek – This site reminds me of a lifehacker designed for college students. Written BY college students, you will find things like “How to Get Boxes for Your Move” (seriously why is this always so hard?!) and “42 Things I Learned Freshman Year“
Did I miss something? Do you know of a great blog or site? Please tell me about it in the comments!
