HIGHER EDUCATION RESOURCES
« on: October 18, 2012, 11:06:33 pm »
I just feel like this would be good for the Help Desk. I'll update as I find more sites to help out. If you find something else that helped you too, let us know!
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.

Knightcite- http://www.calvin.edu/library/knightcite/
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- http://www.khanacademy.org/  [Suggeste by Toranar]
Audio/Animated(maybe?) lessons on common things you might need for classes.

Ted Talks- http://www.ted.com/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.

Please suggest more and post them here!

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

Many of these are SO useful to me that I'm very grateful.  :D The only thing I was going to offer was 'owl' but its already shared - thanks Alnix! :)

But these might end up being very useful.. at some time.

Ironic, but still. XD

Codecademy is a great place to learn code (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc...) http://www.codecademy.com/tracks

If your doing a class with code, this will be a big help.
