How come people buy the Sparknotes study guides when you can read them online on their site for free?

easier to read a book than stuff on the computer

It is easier to read a book, but books nowadays are so expensive! I use sparknotes online as a suplement to the actual barrons books.

You only get 1 test of one book online, and of course it's more convenient to read from a book than online. I'm cheap though, so I just use the online version.

I think that sometimes, you should go buy some print sparknotes. They are the one company to provide such a resource totally free to us students, and they give us a LOT. Forgot to read those 2 chapters for the quiz you have next period? Well, you can hop on sparknotes any time to read them. I consider buying the print copy a way of making sure this awesome online resource doesn't go away
