    If you are near your campus than textbookexchange.com I think it is, is a good second hand website for textbooks

    Oh yes, having things at least clearly labelled is so amazing and actually having everything organised is brilliant help! Both on the computer and with books and notes lol.

    I used a note book for handwritten notes and a folder with plastic sleeves for each subject. I'd then have a sleeve for my unit outline, and a sleeve for each week which contained my lecture slides and any other handouts from that week. Makes it heaps easier when it comes time to study topic-by-topic at exam time. I'm a stationary addict, but at a minimum, I'd recommend pens, highlighter/s, stapler, and the post-it tabs - very useful to tab the pages containing the most important concepts / definitions :-)

    I also agree that having separate folders on your computer for each subject makes it much easier.

    Oh also I second textbook exchange - I saved so much money by buying second hand textbooks, then also re-sold most at the end of each semester for a similar amount to what I paid. The co-op / on-campus bookshop should be your last resort. Just make sure when buying second hand books that its the correct edition!!

    I agree with buying 2nd hand books. I have so many books just collecting dust!! Then others that have got their use over the years and are my bible

    Umm.... an online textbook that you own entirely, no subsriptions. Lots of digital devices, like an ipad or smart phone, computer laptop.

    An evernote account for notes and notebooks. Its free!

    A google account for syncing calendars online.
    Good movies for kids to watch.
    Patience
    Patience
    More patience
    A quiet place to study, someone to listen to you explain something to them about your study modules.

    Might be a good idea to look into a cleaning roaster for the whole family, you will need as much help as you can get.

    Good luck!

    But, my computer isnt working and the laptop is in hubby's room.. He is sleeping. So I am using my ipad and some physical paper and pen to write. Gahh! My hand writing looks like my daughters. Lol.
    Writing notes out is probably better haha.

    With those paper notes, I belueve there is an app on ipad or phone. (Not entirely sure of the phone). Which allows you to scan physical notes and you could sync this with evernote.
    Its called Moleskine. Or moleskin. It recognises lines on a page and you can use it to back up notes ibstead of retyping it into the computer. I sometimes take a picture of my notes on my phone and create an evernote note.
    Saves me so much time.
    Has anyobe tried using voice recognition apps for note taking? Are there any good ones? I use an abdroid phone... though I could sneak my daughters ipod off her to use the apple store. Lol
