Two of the most important resources we have are time and money, and for most students these resources are especially tight. That’s why we want to help you get the most out of your time and money when it comes to textbooks and study techniques. Barnes & Noble has a new free application that makes studying and using etextbooks easy and efficient.
Nook study is a free application that can be downloaded on the PC or the Mac. This application will enable you to download and organize your textbooks and notes on your computer. This application does more than that though, it will help you stay organized, study faster, and even create papers faster.
With the Nook study you can not only organize all of your textbooks in one device, you can also organize all of your notes, instructor notes, slides, and additional references. You can highlight and color code information as you read it. You can tag information into categories, such as questions for your instructor or review information. You can also underline important information and copy and print information. If you have information on your computer that is printable you can print to the Nook study, which will enable you to put your instructor notes and syllabus in the study tool. So everything is organized and at your fingertips. You can also use this tool to search your texts and all of your information so you spend time learning the information you need, instead of searching for it.
Probably one of the coolest features of the Nook study app is the ability to help you create term papers fast. Most term papers require a certain amount of references and citations, including a bibliography. In the old days, students had to manually find and copy this material from their reference books. One of the hardest parts of the entire process was formatting the information correctly. If your reference is an online book that you are using within the Nook study app, this tedious process is now as easy as cutting and pasting the citation.
Just search for the term you would like a quote on, by pushing Control F or Command F, depending if you are on a PC or Mac. Once you find the appropriate citation just copy and paste it into your notes and the bibliography information will be attached. It really doesn’t get any easier than that. So if you want a lightweight study solution that will help you organize all of your information in one device, plus the ability to help you study and create term papers easily. Then the Nook study is a free application that can help you get the most out of your study time. Plus you can save a little money, by downloading the free app and using it on your existing computer.
