Comprehensive student aid

Aimed at students with variable schedules, this planner has an impressive series of options that sets it apart from simple calendar programs.

StudyMinder is a planner aimed directly at students with variable schedules. With an impressive series of additional options, this program sets itself apart from simple calendaring programs.

At the core of this free 30-day trial is a calendar. Users divide their calendars by semesters or quarters. The calendars even provide countdowns to finals week. By inputting classes and credits, users get a full picture of their scholastic world. The program sends reminders so users do not miss a class.

But, it is the other options that give StudyMinder its legs. Students can enter homework assignments into their calendars and budget time to complete them. In this same option, users can track all of the previous homework grades, quizzes, and test scores. This gives the students a crystal clear picture of their grades and GPA when all the classes are looked at together.

StudyMinder also provides some extra help for hard studiers. The program's study timer allows the student to see just how long they've been hitting the books. In addition, the program is linked to a homework-help section that provides online resources to get answers to tough questions.

StudyMinder works well and is intuitive from the beginning. If users have any questions they can simply drag the question mark over the trouble area and see a full description. This is a great asset for anyone trying to get a better grasp on their school work.
