Ace exams, host awesome parties and start the best-ever book club. Win SparkNotes here!

 
 
So, you're cramming for a huge test and you don't have a study guide to reference. Tragic! Don't let yourself get caught in this slacker sitch—pick up SparkNotes. From A+ essays to sample study questions, SparkNotes has everything you need to succeed. Plus, read on for fun study ideas and the chance to win big…

 


 
Study smarter
There's a reason why SparkNotes are the most popular study guides: the clear, concise content makes learning easier, better and faster. So whether it's the night before a midterm or you're just ready to take that GPA to the next level, SparkNotes are the perfect companion for every class. Here's what you can expect in each edition…  

• Chapter-by-chapter analysis
• Explanations of key themes, motifs and symbols
• A review quiz
• 16 pages devoted to writing a literary essay including a glossary of literary terms, plenty of essay topics and a full, A+ essay—yep, an actual literary essay written about the Spark-ed book to show you how a paper should be written
• A feature on how not to plagiarize (not that you ever would as that's a super terrible idea on about 100 levels)

3 amazingly fun ways to use SparkNotes…
But the smarts don't stop at school—you can actually use the guides for so much more. Check out three ways (besides scoring A's!) to use SparkNotes…

1. Find more meaning in your favorite reads.
Heart The Hunger Games? Author Suzanne Collins didn't just craft the best-ever beach read—it's also a thoughtful social commentary with really interesting points about pop culture (like reality TV). There's a lot to think about between those pages—you know, besides the whole Gale vs. Peeta debate. A legit reason to read THG again? Love that.

2. Start a book club with your besties.
Want to stay in touch with your fave chicks from Lit class over summer? Start a book club. Here's how it works: Pick a classic read (like the totally enchanting A Midsummer Night's Dream) and agree on a number of chapters to read for each session. Every member takes turns playing hostess—she serves the sips and snacks—and your SparkNotes provide the deeper discussion questions. Dishing and debating has never been so simple (and smart).

3. Host a themed sleepover.
Is your weekly manis-and-milkshakes routine getting a little too predictable? Dazzle your sleepover guests with a themed affair inspired by an amazing read. Our pick? Romeo and Juliet. Marathon-watch our three favorite versions (1968's a total classic, the 1996 spectacular stars a young Leo DiCaprio and 2013's with Hailee Steinfeld is the reigning fave) and use SparkNotes to talk about all the different plot variations and interpretations.
