Sometimes an impending exam is what we need for information to stick in our mind. It’s no wonder that last minute cramming is a distinctive sight outside exam halls and even in cars in commute.
Carrying a stack of books and notebooks is an option, certainly. But it’s not the most practical solution when you need to look over a few things. And there are definitely better ways to keep your notes organised.
We’d recommend a tablet for last minute studying, though in truth they’re a useful study aid at any stage in the year. They’re compact and light enough to carry around or take out for a quick catch up whenever and wherever you have a spare moment. And yet, at the same time, they offer you access to your entire collection of notes, study aids, tools, and much more.
No matter the operating system you prefer, there’s something to suit your tastes.
