Web Spy: Cramster

[There are over 100 million sites on the Internet. 100 million! You might think you know about all the important ones (CollegeCandy, Gmail, Google, Facebook…), but there are thousands of other sweet sites out there (like Swap.com, LiveProfile and Foodily) and more showing up every day! We get it – it’s not easy or fun sifting through the crap and porn to find those gems, so we’re gonna bring the gems to you. Just sit back, kick up those feet and allow us to introduce you to the diamonds in the internet rough.]

It’s May, which means summer vacation is almost here! Soon, you’ll be free of classes and have plenty of time to relax, lie on the beach, party with friends, and work that summer job or internship — you just have to get through finals first.

But don’t worry, studying for finals this semester will be a breeze with Cramster! Cramster is a comprehensive online study and homework help resource that will make studying for your exams a lot easier. With Cramster, you can download study guides and lecture notes by subject, create and join study groups and take practice exams.

The awesomeness doesn’t stop there. Cramster‘s “Textbook Help” section of its site make it a super useful resource all semester long. This section gives solutions to problems in specific math, science, and engineering textbooks — spelled out in a clear, step-by-step process to not only tell you the correct answer, but help you understand the solution so you’ll know how to solve similar problems on a test. Cramster offers solutions for over 300 textbooks, but if you don’t see yours listed, you can request that it be added.

Cramster also offers a “Homework Help” section where you can ask a specific question about an assignment and get it answered in less than two hours by “subject experts” and other Cramster users — this is especially helpful if you can’t get the answer to your problem in the “Textbook Help” section. As a reward for answering questions and helping out your fellow Cramster users, you can earn “Karma” points and redeem them for rewards, such as giftcards, electronics and more! How cool is that?

In order to use Cramster, you’ll have to sign up for a free account (hint: fill out your profile to start earning some easy karma points). If you feel like you really need all the help you can get, Cramster also offers a paid premium version of the site with access to more features and faster responses from the homework help experts.

The only downside I’ve found with Cramster so far is that I didn’t know about it sooner — it sure would have helped me out in high school!
