Geek Gadgets - Top 5 Gadgets For Studying Students

Unless you're a complete genius, you're going to need to study if you want to consistently maintain high grades. Unfortunately, many students have a hard time studying effectively. Good study habits will take you a long way, but certain gadgets will take studying students even farther. Here are the top five gadgets for studying students.

LCD Writing Pad

In order to study, you're going to need to take good notes. The LCD writing pad is perfect for taking notes anywhere and everywhere. It comes with a stylus that you use to write on it. You don't have to carry paper around with you, and you won't have to worry as much about losing your notes because it'll all be in one place.

The internal memory of the LCD writing pad can store 200 pages, but if you need more space, you can move pages from the writing pad to your computer by using any USB cable.

Kindle E-Reader

If the textbooks you have for your classes can be accessed in an e-Book format, then a Kindle E-Reader is definitely a must-have. Unlike huge, bulky textbooks, you won't have trouble taking your Kindle everywhere you go. Therefore, you won't ever have to carry around an extremely heavy backpack.

Also, if you have the option of only purchasing the textbook in the e-Book format, you should go with that instead of the physical format. Usually, the e-Book is much cheaper than the hard copies.

Smart Pen

Although it looks like nothing special, the smart pen can do far more than the average pen. The smart pen is actually a live scribe camera. Every single thing you write or draw using this pen will be recorded in digital format.

Also, not only can the LiveScribe smart pen record what you write or draw, it also captures audio as well. So, along with your notes, you'll also have your teacher's lecture to listen to. These recordings can be uploaded to your laptop or desktop within seconds for easy viewing.

The LiveScribe smart pen comes with the actual smart pen, software, and dotted paper. Depending on which smart pen you get, you'll end up paying $100 to $200, a hefty yet worthwhile price.

Wireless Hard Drive

Every student would find it convenient to have access to their notes wherever they go, especially if they don't have a printer. One great wireless hard drive is the Seagate GoFlex satellite, which has 500 gigabytes of storage. With this device, you don't have to worry about WiFi access because it can create its very own network.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

Most people can only study in complete silence, but that can be hard to achieve, especially if you live in a dorm or share housing with friends. A great way to have silence despite the constant noise around you is by purchasing noise cancelling headphones.

Although most of them aren't completely necessary, gadgets can make a student's life much easier. If you purchase the top five gadgets listed above, you won't have any trouble studying to achieve high grades.
