Question Cliffnotes ??

Have any of you ever read the Cliffnotes to a book when you were in high school instead of reading the book? How did you do on the test?

Not instead of. I was willing to read anything and my taste was weird enough for a teen tha I liked most of what we read.

Me too. I think that we read some really good books in high school. I liked them all but I remember those kids (you know the ones) that would always brag that they didn't read the book but instead used the cliffnotes and still made an A on the test. Used to make me

I think I tried using cliffnotes one time and I failed the test and I never used them again. Made me sick. I really blamed myself for not doing my reading. I learned my lesson though.
