Bump. Was planning to get MQ Study Lab few weeks back, then changed my mind because wasn't sure how good all the exercises and videos besides the sample vids on their page.

It would be great if someone who already uses it could give some feedback.

Noone at all has used this? Strange because it seems so great but I can't find anything on any forums at all about it as a good resource

I use it!! I reckon it's kinda useful if you want to freshen up your memory before an exam or if you don't understand anything you can always look at the videos. There are also quizzes for you to do.

I think if anyone has a Burwood library card-they can access the HSC Study Lab thing for free via their E-library because Burwood library has subscribed to it.

Realise it might not be worth it for me. Sometimes whenever I use technology for study I just somehow end up wasting time on some site like youtube or music.

I strictly avoid my laptop during study, other than for writing some English drafts or printing stuff off. Its not gonna work out for people like me. Hard copies and book are ten times better for me. However I would have liked if someone could explain the content to me like they do on those videos.

If you can get it for free through your school, it's a great resource. It's not worth the money, otherwise. I use it for biology, chemistry and physics, and I think it's useful, but I personally don't think it's worth the money. Not to mention the 'interactive' activities are really basic, and the quizzes are <10 questions, which aren't randomised from a pool of questions, so you get the same questions in the same order every time. But it's not bad, it just isn't very good.

My school provides StudyLab and i have purchased HSC Hub.

Personally, I find the HSC Hub videos much more engaging and concise (I too am very distractible), though I've watched both for almost all of chemistry and physics and there is very little which doesn't overlap (if anything, HSC Hub has better facts and side notes).

For the cheaper price, it's certainly a valuable resource.
