The Only Back-To-School Cheat Sheet You'll Ever Need

As summer ends and classes begin, we are once again reminded of the horrors that college can bring. However, today I bless you with a "cheat sheet" of sorts, or, in other words, a collection of really freaking helpful charts and websites.

1. Get Microsoft Office for free here, by signing up with your college email.

2. The Five-Day Study plan... if you have the time for it.

3. Free online academic journals!

4. How to Pull an All-Nighter: tips and tricks from the pros, because scientists have finally accepted reality.

5. FINAL GRADE CALCULATOR: we've all needed this at some point or another.

6. A search engine that uses the money it makes to plant trees --> Ecosia

7. Need some relaxing background noise? No worries.

8. Free presentations on Prezi!

9. Bibliographies and citing websites that aren't EasyBib:

10. Oh, and if you have Microsoft Word, here's something they've been hiding - log your sources, and they'll make a bibliography FOR YOU:


11. A step-by-step guide for when you need to cram...

12. Helpful YouTube crash courses here.

16. How to stop procrastinating: click here. And if you decide to procrastinate anyway, here is a list on how to avoid a hangover.


17. Who has time for a job? Make money taking surveys!


18. And finally, I've saved the best for last - free online textbooks.

    • Flat World: THE college textbook site. The world's largest publisher of free college-level textbooks.
    • Open Culture: Small selection, good texts. It's that easy.
    • Book Boon: Much larger selection in PDF format.
    • Library Pirate: probably the sketchiest site of them all, but you won't be disappointed.
    • And here's a very long list of other sites to try... It's a lot to get through, but I'd rather waste time than $500. Click here.

That's all I've got for now, folks! You can thank me later.
