This is probably the top 3 best apps for studying. In high school Biology the students worst nightmare is having to memorize all the new names and ideas that are in the content of the coarse. But every good science teacher knows that memorizing is all part of the learning experience. Study blue will replace the endless amount of flash cards with digital tests. these digital flash cards not only help you study but keep track of how many you get right and will tell you what part of the content to focus more on.
