Though my days as a student are long in the past, I can still remember that panic stricken feeling that I would get in my gut near the end of each semester, when I learned whether my slacking had finally gotten the best of me. Fortunately for me, my neglect never came back to roost, but there were plenty of hours spent hunkered over a calculator, as I figured out what was the worst possible score that I could get on my final exam and still pass.
What I would have given back then to have an iPhone equipped with the free tool Grades 2. If I had this app in my arsenal, all those hours spent determining how much I could get away with slacking would have been better spent doing that college students do best: absolutely nothing! For a more detailed breakdown of how Grades 2 works take a look at the handy walkthrough video below.
