This is a really neat site for working spectroscopy problems. "About this site" tells you how to use the site and "problems" presents many spectroscopy problems to solve (just click on the problem number) from easy to medium to hard. If you click on a region of an NMR it will expand and show you the multiplicity and provide the coupling constants. Some mass specs and some IRs are provided as well.

ChemFinder, useful info on common compounds, if you use it multiple times you need to register, but there is no charge:

American Chemical Society, at top left you can access the journals and magazines of the

Information on MSDS sheets (material safety data sheets), including links to information about
specific compounds and frequently asked questions about MSDS sheets:

Predict H and 13C NMRs, there's a little trial and error to learn how to draw structures, choose atom, then click to start, then choose your next atom and click on previous atom and drag away with to make the new connection until you build your structure, click a second (or third time on a bond to make it a multiple bond, if you click "protocol" at the top right it will show you how it came up with its prediction:
