Koofers.com is one of the most versatile websites you will find to help you be successful in college. On the Koofers website, you will find:
- Course information (exams, grade distributions, course notes, etc.)
- Professor ratings
- Note taking support
- Flash card generator
- A GPA calculator
- A schedule maker
Of the various functions, the course information is the most useful. You can click on a specific subject to find old exams. If old exams aren’t available for you university, you can also seek out old exams from other universities to use a practice exams. Having old exams is especially helpful as a way of practicing for exams, especially in courses (e.g. math, science) where the content is similar from university to university.
You can also see the grade distribution for teachers for a class you will be taking. The site also contains a teacher rating and pros/cons of the course you are considering.
Koofers also offers an electronic flashcard support. You can create flashcards on line and then test yourself on your knowledge of what’s on the flashcards. This can be an excellent way to prepare for a test in classes where there is a lot of information to memorize.
In a similar way, Koofers lets you take notes online. While other programs provide note taking support, the advantage of Koofers is that it helps you keep your notes organized.
Finally Koofers provides a GPA calculator and schedule maker. Again other sites provide these services, but Koofers is a comprehensive one-stop location for these services.
Koofers is free to use but it does require you to be registered. Koofers is a wonderful site, but it still lacks content for many universities.
