A flash drive is handy to have in order to store files as more schools rely on computer equipment instead of textbooks. (Textbooks are actually one of the most expensive items in a school and if budgets get cut, this area is one of the first to go).

You may look into a public library card for physical book research.

A thesaurus and dictionary are also handy, although you can also use the online dictionary and thesaurus.

A scientific calculator with a fraction key is handy for algebra and other math / physics and science classes.

Be sure to look around the house for usable items from last year.

*your school and specific programs may vary so check with them also for additional requirements.
