    I would look at possibly getting a homework program. Due Yesterday is free and works really well. Easy to use interface. You can create as many classes as you like and add information such as the date & times, teacher, and location. Adding assignments and due dates is a snap.

    Dictionaries and Thesauruses are a good idea. There are several free ones available, but the more comprehensive versions are sharware.

    Also, what courses are you taking? You can find may apps that are course specific, such as periodic tables for chemistry.

    Here are a few websites I recommend searching for this software.

    What age and/or grade level are you? I have a lot of educational software (most freeware) on my daughter's Zire 72 that could be applicable across age ranges. They include dictionaries and thesauruses, flash card apps that allow you to create your own to study by, timed math tasks (+,-, x, ./.), and some other things I can't remember right now. But I'd be more than happy to share when I get home and can get my hands on her handheld to get the names.

    As much as I appreciate that we are trying to help, I think we should be careful about asking for personally identifying information in an on-line community. Kids these days are taught not to divulge this kind of information unless they personally know the person they are corresponding with and their parents know that they are divulging it. (I'm a pediatrician and a father.)

    I agree with the principle of your statement wholeheartedly, Dbarshain, although the only vaguely-identifying piece of information requested - with reasonable cause - was Doug21's rough age, in order to recommend useful and suitable software for his age-group. If anything else had been asked then I would also have had grounds for concern. :)

    We have a saying in the military (but it applies to identity theft, stalking, etc): Unclassified + Unclassified + Unclassified = Classified.

    Bits and pieces of information can add up to more than the sum of their parts.

    Aso true. However, the Brighthand member 'Doug21' has provided no other identifying information in their public profile - nor in any of their other posts to date - and was only asked to narrow down their age-range with relation to the topic of suitable software recommendations. :)
