  3. FREE PDF READERS - This helpful blog from HubSpot recommends the 15 best free PDF readers of 2020.

  4. There is also a cite called: Library Genesis or Library Genesis Direct Website to see if they have your books available as a PDF, a Promise Scholar in the chat I am part of suggested not to use it on school wifi. 

  5. If some classes have not contacted you regarding course materials such as text books try to check out Rate my Professor if students have mentioned a book being required.

  6. Another form of checking if a class requires a book is through the UCSB Bookstore site by going to "textbooks" --> "order textbooks" & clicking "Spring 20 Order Now" it will let you check by Department + course #

If you are wanting to wake up early & find yourself snoozing your alarm and sleeping in or having trouble waking up early/on time. Try this app called MyMath Alarm where you can turn off your alarm only after answering some math problems. You can set it up to the # of problems to solve and it has a section where you can plan out your routine. It let's you customize what sounds will ring in combinations or if you want it to say something like "Wake Up" when the alarm goes off. Image of how the app looks provided below:
