OpenStudy Voted Best Study Guide

If you end up wasting a lot of valuable homework time on social networks, OpenStudy might be the solution to your problems. Using a collaborative approach, OpenStudy makes studying into a social activity by allowing students to interact with each other online. If you're stumped on a particular homework question or concept, you can search the site to see if someone's already asked the same question. And if you can't find what you're looking for, OpenStudy allows you to formulate your own questions.

You can also help your fellow students out by answering questions on the site. If you've mastered a particular subject, but need help in another area, you can simply join another study group. OpenStudy has groups in categories ranging from math and physics to social sciences and computer programming. You can also create your own groups if you'd like to make a space for you and your classmates.

CliffsNotes

Before the Internet age, CliffsNotes were small, printed yellow pamphlets that could serve as a guide or a crib sheet. Now, the CliffsNotes website is chock-full of different study aids that do far more than just provide the right answer. Whether you need help with foreign languages, literature, math, science or history, you can find help on this site. Plus, CliffsNotes hosts standardized test prep resources in addition to information about colleges.

SparkNotes

If you're looking for a guide to a famous work of literature, Sparknotes has you covered. The site also features video guides for those who are burned out on reading. Sparknotes isn't all study guides and seriousness, though - at the time this article was written, the site's front page featured a 'heated debate' over whether Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is 'a total fox.'
