Tonight I was snouting around my private forum when finding some very useful resources for education. Please save any that are relevant.

Tests Required for College:

http://www.collegeboard.org/ Sign up for the SAT here. Test dates are posted on the website. Get it done late junior year or early senior year

http://www.actstudent.org/ Sign up for the ACT here. Once again dates are posted on the site. Get it done in the same era

College Search:

https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/college-search This is my favorite college search engine. It's by the same group that's in charge of the SAT and the oh so wonderful AP Tests.

http://www.cappex.com/ On top of searching for colleges you can find scholarships as well.

Good for writing papers. Just figure out the info on the article, and the format you need, and it will format the source correctly for you.

Khan Academy-
I'd definitely recommend Khan Academy! It is a fantastic science (and other stuff) resource! The videos are very fun to watch. Audio/Animated(maybe?) lessons on common things you might need for classes.

Ted Talks-
Short speech-like video that cover a variety of topics in entertainment, technology, science, and world politics that can be useful in sources, information for a paper, or even a thought provoking cool-down.

This site is really helpful when getting familiar with MLA-style papers. I had to do a couple in high-school and a few in college, so OWL is a mighty handy resource:


This is the most helpful little tool ever when writing long research papers that require a lot of footnotes and bibliographic citations, it saves a lot of time.


This is a bit of a directory, it can direct you to a number of resources and organizations.

Also this site is the best resource I've found for any computer hardware or software term i wanted to look up. If you want to know whats inside your computer and how it works this is a good place to look.

Codecademy is a great place to learn code (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc...) http://www.codecademy.com/tracks If you are doing a class with code, this will be a big help.

I was particularly impressed with
The Independent's Top 10 Revision Tips: with their revision timetable and adapted it to suit my own. And it worked really well! I'm glad I found that link. For national newspapers and the sometimes the great info they produce, this is one thing that I so love about the Internet.

And moar :p
