Nowadays, preparing for a public competition is much more viable than in years past. Using technology, contestants can study from home, with high-quality materials available online. But people are always in doubt about the best apps to pass the test, as there are countless apps available in the smartphone stores. With that in mind, we’ve broken down the three best apps for you to get ready for the competition.
1 – Trello (Organization and Personalization)
Trello is one of the best tools for anyone who needs to get organized in their studies. Available for both Android and iOS (IOS) devices, the app allows the student to create and organize columns according to their study routine. An example of using the app is to create a ticket with the name of the contest you are registering for. For example: “Contest for Bank of Brazil”.
On the same card, you can create some checklists as your reading progresses. In one column there are texts that have already been read, in the other column those that are being read and the other with texts that have not yet been read. To download the app, simply go to: https://apps.apple.com/br/app/trello/id461504587. Trello also allows the user to set dates and deadlines for completing certain activities.
2 – the forest
Unlike Trello, Forest is a browser extension. Its function is to prevent the student from being distracted during online classes with games, advertisements and social networks, among other annoying games. This means that it is very important to keep students focused and increase productivity in studies. To install the extension, simply go to: https://www.techtudo.com.br/tudo-sobre/google-chrome/.
The idea of the app is very interesting. It works from gaming experience, from a tree photo. For example, when the user installs the extension, he can specify which sites will be blocked. From there, time will start to count and the spanning tree will start to grow. This helps the student to see how well he or she has developed during that time period. Plus, it increases productivity when studying online, which is an environment full of distractions.
