I’m sure that academic purists would heap criticism upon me for recommending Spark Notes (http://www.sparknotes.com/), but the website is helpful to writers for at least three reasons:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 http://www.sparknotes.com/. Happy navigating!
