Back to the Grind

It's time to wake up from your hazy, lazy beach daydreams. Summer days are getting shorter, which means back to school is getting closer. 

For the ambitious but cash-strapped grad student, innovator in tools for document review and collaborative writing, Nordic River, has compiled a list of the top free web apps every student should know about before hitting the books this fall: ( -- A free personal scheduling program that enables students to plan their classes, study time, and social calendar with ease. ( -- An advanced Track Changes tool that helps students collaborate on documents by giving them the freedom to send out the same document to everyone in the group at one time, upload each version they send back, and then compare everyone's contribution simultaneously in one view. ( -- This automatic bibliography and citation maker is a life-saver when it comes to papers and essays. It enables students to plug in their term paper sources and out comes the Works Cited page in a Microsoft Word document. ( -- For those times when you're sick and can't make class, this site is like a "Wikipedia for your notes". It allows students to log in and compare notes with other students in the same class, or post their notes to help others
Fast Web ( -- Students can find any and every type of scholarship or internship here.
gFlash ( -- Create your own flashcards and share them with your study group. Great for tests and quizzes!
SnapTell ( -- Compare book prices by simply pointing your iPhone at a book jacket. The phone instantly provides a price comparison of everywhere that book is available online.
