4. Self Control & Freedom

You might have all the right study resources, but who’s going to stop you from wandering over to Reddit when you should be focusing? Procrastination is the worst, but apps like Self Control and Freedom can be a huge help. Self Control keeps you from falling down any online rabbit holes by temporarily blocking distracting websites during your study session, while Freedom keeps you covered in terms of apps.

Try out Self Control and Freedom for yourself.


5. Evernote.

Convenience is key when it comes to studying. After all, studying is stressful enough as it is. Evernote is a life-changing app that lets you upload notes, attachments, audio and more so you can keep all of your study materials in one place. The best part? You can upload your handwritten notes from class, and then search your handwriting for the specific term you’re looking for. Pretty convenient, huh?
