Woah I really Should Have Read That Book:
- Caffeine (Keeps your computer from falling asleep while you’re taking notes)
- SelfControl (Keeps you from accessing certain websites.
- Flux (Adds red light to your computer so that late-night studying doesn’t fuck with your sleep schedule)
- Pages (An easier-to-use word app. This one does cost money, but it’s worth it)
- Square Root Calculator
- Cube Root Calculator
- Expression Simplifier
- Multi Step Equation Calculator
- Slope Intercept Equation Maker
- Mathway (If Jesus made a website)
- Chemical Equation Balancer
- DESMOS Graphing Calculator
Didn’t Listen In Class:
- Quizlet (create flashcards and view other people’s)
- TED (basically gods gift)
- FreeRice (Feed the hungry and study at the same time)
- Final Grade Calculator (should i study for that last test?)
- Textbook Nova (Free online textbooks)
- FilesTube - FilesTube searches THE ENTIRE INTERNET for files uploaded to file-sharing websites such as Rapidshare, Mediafire, or WuUpload. Sometimes people will upload pdf files of your textbook. This is always an important first search.
- Google Books - You usually won’t find your textbook on Google Books, but it’s always worth a look. Sometimes pages are missing because it’s only a preview of the book, but again - always worth a look.
- Scribd - People upload documents to Scribd and by becoming a member (free!) or connecting through Facebook (if you’re lazy!), you can download whatever files you may find. This sometimes includes textbooks.
- BookBoon - website specifically for finding pdf versions of textbooks
- Curriki - free open source materials
- Flat World Knowledge - free business, humanities, and science textbooks
- California Learning Resource Network
- Open Culture
- Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources
- Bookfi - I just briefly looked at this site and searched for a few common terms and it looks great! Download links are provided straight from the search results. Definitely useful! (Added 1 August 2012)
- Ink eBook - Recommended by a few. Seems to just be a general eBook search site! (Added 12 January 2013)

Also this post is very important so I will put it here too:
remember: if you’re attending a school that gives you a .edu email address, you can upgrade your amazon.com account to prime for free by going on and choosing the college/student membership. that means you get the prime 2-day shipping and even some textbook discounts (not to mention AFAIK you enjoy the amazon instant access for free for the duration of your edu email being active)
Popping someone’s bubble of ignorance and forcing them to deal with reality.
That’s actually a really literal description of this gif
