In addition to what teachers and professors are
students to buy, there are a lot of
gadgets that can help save time and
space while studying, and gadgets
that can help relax and wind down after a
long week of class.
Here is a short
list of favorites for every student to
#1. LiveScribe Pen Series.

come study cram time.

with a paper bright screen, making
reading a snap. Download times are some of

#4. Optoma PK-101 Pico projector
For the people who like to share their
favorite videos with large groups
without the clausterphobic feelings of
a tight group hug, the Optoma
Pico projector is a great gadget. Not much larger than an external hard
drive, this projector connects to
almost any device, and can turn any
surface into a movie backdrop.
#5. Smart Watch
At times, in spite of cramming that
history answer again and again, you
keep forgetting it, and you just need
that one sentence to remember it all.
In cases like this, a smart watch like
this can come in handy. It
looks like an ordinary digital watch,
but allows you to put in your txt
files. You can easily read the contents
uploaded by pressing UP and DOWN and if you think your invigilator has got suspicious, press the Emergency
button, and he would never be able to
know what you were doing. All he
would see is date and time. But again,
resist the temptation of misusing it.

900 dpi. It also comes with
conversion modes to change text zones
of a page into several file formats, and also has
the ability to upload directly to
