Review:
This no-frills packaging of previously published, top-notch, student Palm OS programs not only assists aspiring Rhodes Scholars in achieving academic excellence but also saves them big bucks -- not a small consideration as the price of education skyrockets.

For under $40, this disk includes almost $250 in proven software! In other words, it's a deal. And a big deal for the student who, say, wants to pull out their trusty PDA to check course assignments, track grades, keep the grocery or to-do list handy, download a Microsoft Word document for editing on the run, read an eBook between classes and more. This software package also contains reference programs galore: World Book Encyclopedia demo, 2003 World Almanacs, U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence, US State Trivia, Periodic Table and a Nutrition database. Need a break from the academic drudgery? Try Scrabble, Monopoly, Tetris, Magic Dogs and other games just for fun. In all, some two dozen programs are included. It's a great productivity-enhancing package for the student getting a new PDA or upgrading the one they already own.
