16 Cool Study Guides That Will Actually Make You Want To Study

You may have noticed that there has been a renaissance of sorts regarding study culture recently, (you know, if “study” and “culture” are two words you are in the habit of putting together). There is the studyblr phenomenon on Tumblr, first of all, which offers up photos of insanely neat, organized notes and  studying areas with the idea that simply seeing these ostensibly excellent studying methods will help you get good grades too. Pinterest–which has long been the website of choice for wannabe organizers–also has a bunch of similar posts.

I have always been a little skeptical of these kinds of blogs and pins–where’s the proof that using Muji pens and calligraphy paper for your notes will help you get good grades?– but these sites are good for more than just showing you calligraphy that you’ll never be able to achieve.  Both Pinterest and Tumblr also have a bunch of study guides that maintain their aesthetically-pleasing allure while also being genuinely helpful to a bunch of different subjects.

You should obviously use whatever resources your teachers provide you with first before you turn to these–some teachers will want you to use a certain algorithm or formula that won’t be covered on these guides–but it can be helpful to have another thing to help explain a certain concept. So, check out these cool study guides that will actually make you want to study:
