Students preparing for their exams, finals or otherwise, traditionally, have had to collate a vast amount of knowledge and information assembled from various books and resources. This is clearly a laborious and time-consuming process that also diverts the attention of the student into topics and areas that are seldom important or relevant to the exam.
