College student cramming for a final

OK, I’ve waited til the last possible minute to start studying, but I think I should still be good. I mean, yeah, I could have started studying yesterday, or the day before, or anytime really in the past three months, but helllooooo, there were parties to attend and volleyball to play and late night cookies to bake and 5 seasons of “Breaking Bad” to rewatch. These things are also an important part of my college experience. It’s not like I can just study all the time. Sometimes I feel like my professors don’t understand the school/life balance.

7 Classes That Sound Easy But Are Actually Really Hard

Making your schedule in college takes almost as much effort as writing a ten-page paper or studying for an exam. You have to make sure you get the classes you need, and they all need to be at certain times so there isn’t any overlap (we don’t have Time-Turners in muggle world). One of the hardest parts about making a schedule is picking your “easy” classes. Those are the classes you pick when you need one more credit, but already have a packed schedule of the tough classes you need to fill your major’s requirements. You need these classes to be easy, because you’re either going to be slammed with work from other classes or because you don’t really care about the class, since it’s not a part of your major.

The worst thing about picking “easy” classes is when you think you’re getting a whole semester of take-home tests and completion assignments, but you don’t. The class turns out to be really hard, and suddenly you’re in jeopardy of failing your easy A class. Well fear not CC readers, because I’ve been through four years of college, so I know which classes to avoid when you’re looking to keep that GPA at a 4.0.

Coca-Cola’s Crammer Keeper App Makes Studying As Simple As Singing A Tune

Students these days have it so easy. Laptops and tablets have virtually eliminated the need for notebooks and textbooks. The internet has made sitting in a classroom unnecessary. And now Coca-Cola has created the Crammer Keeper app that makes retaining course material easy. Ever noticed how you can remember the lyrics to the #1 song or an oldies hit, but have a difficult time remembering your school or work notes? Well the new Crammer Keeper is a free app that lets you turn your notes into a catchy tune, so you can remember them in a fun way. All you have to do is input your notes, select your preferred voice, choose a music genre (hip hop, rock, pop, etc.), and then download the song. You can even share it with friends, classmates, or colleagues. I’m not in school, but I’m thinking the Crammer Keeper will help me remember names and blogs of colleagues, instead of only remembering their Twitter handles. Keep reading »
