Every student could use a little extra spending money, and selling your class notes and study materials is one way to make some on the side for something you're doing for free already. Flashnotes lets you sign up by school, post your notes for specific classes, and sell them to other students.

Students who sign up for the service create an account ties to their specific college or university, and from there they can browse available classes and check out previews of notes, flashcards, video tutorials, and more for courses on their campus or in their departments. All of the notes are course specific, which means whether you find anything for your particular class may be a tossup, but the service boasts several major US universities (although they wouldn't tell me how many schools are on the service overall.)

If you're looking for notes or study materials, you can just browse by department or class and see if anything's available. If you're interested in selling, you can post your notes, give them a price, and even do things like offer promo codes to other students looking to buy. Of course, the advertising is up to you—you'll have to get the word out that your notes for PSYC100 are up and are some of the best on the web, and that tactic will probably work for larger classes, but you may have trouble with smaller, more advanced courses unless you sell your notes from this semester to students of the following term or year.

In any event, Flashnotes says their average students pick up a couple hundred dollars on the site, and that their in-house team reviews and monitors materials uploaded to make sure the notes being sold are actually of decent quality before they're posted. Plus, you can preview any notes before you buy them, to make sure you're not shelling out for what amounts to be useless. They also offer a money-back guarantee if you're displeased with your purchase. For their part, Flashnotes doesn't add listing fees, but they take 30% of every sale, so price accordingly. Hit the link below to learn more, or sign up if you're interested in making a little side cash just for taking good notes in class.

they aren't doing anything new.
I've used nite taking services and it's helpful if you miss a few days but it can be expensive and definitely won't magically help you pass the final if you missed the whole semester

I couldn't read someone's notes without having gone to class

Study guides for exams may be helpful though. I aced a biochem course by using this girls study guides. They were almost identical to what would be on the exams
