Spark Notes: A Helpful Website

I’m sure that academic purists would heap criticism upon me for recommending Spark Notes (, but the website is helpful to writers for at least three reasons:

  1. The Study Guides section offers potential customers the opportunity to browse for the products they want, on topics ranging from literature and philosophy to math and science.
  2. The College Search section provides a good search engine for general and demographic data for most American colleges, and you can enter each college’s website from there.
  3. The “Writing” link in the Study Guides section gives excellent tips on grammar, diction, punctuation, and mechanics.

Of course, you may find other reasons to hook into Happy navigating!
