Format: Paperback
This makes an excellent study guide, with a good overview of the novel and its themes, symbols and characters. It's very useful if you're studying Gatsby, but only if you read it as well as the book, it's no substitute!

If you buy the paper version of this for a fifteen year old boy, it will remain unread (presuming that he has read the actual book and isn't using the notes to avoid reading it!). But download it to a kindle and, miraculously, it is read from beginning to end!

Very helpful. 20 Aug. 2002

Format: Paperback
"Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (Cliffs Notes)" is a great way to help you understand what you're reading, if you're having difficulties. If you're not having a problem reading "The Great Gatsby," this will give you questions to test your knowledge of the book. Of course, you should read the Cliffs Notes AFTER you read "The Great Gatsby," not instead of. I recommend.

Relatively good notes for subject 30 Oct. 2005
By G. Larson - Published on
Format: Paperback
Here is an honest review of the book for what it is, not the ethical and educational implications of reading this book. In terms of the educational value received from the book, it's not too bad. Although their vocabulary isn't as great as the vocabular sparknotes employs, their guides seem to colloquially explain the subject material, which is the purpose of the book. I bought the book because I was at Target and needed a guide for an upcomming test where I wouldn't have internet access the nights before (I usually use sparknotes because it's free), and I was surprised by the writing quality of the book. Granted, it's not as good as Fitzgeral's writing, however it does relate the story, which is the primary purpose for a history class.

Concerning the people who have condemned this book, they need to understand the multiple approaches to learning subject areas. Currently I maintain a schedule where on good days I receive 6 hours of sleep and on bad a receive 3 to none because of my busy schedule and heavy extra-cirricular activity. Reading cliff-notes doesn't mean we as readers won't look in the book for quotes (for example - writing a paper) to support our ideas. Simply condemning them because they're not the real book is unfair to the book, the authors, and the people that use cliff notes for ligitimate purposes. Overall, it conveys the idea well, however sparknotes does an equally decent job.

I've read the book several times over many years. I just wanted a refresher and maybe a bit of insight. This was perfect for that.
A good guide 25 Dec. 2013
By Louis Foster - Published on
Format: Paperback
This study guide has excellent summaries and analyses of each chapter, three essays on main characters and background information about the author and the context of the novel. It’s also got some extraneous content, like a Character Map which visualizes the relationships between the characters in a kind of flow chart and two literary essays in the back that don’t add much to what has come before it. Graphics in the margins denoting “Character Insight” and other topics also don’t seem that useful to me, and the copy editing is poorly done with misspelled words including characters’ names on many pages. This study guide does have some unique content. For example, it points to a possible homosexual theme in a scene involving the narrator, and also highlights the warped perception of his perspective after a night of drinking. This study guide has the most thorough chapter summaries and analyses of any guide I’ve read but it’s also stuffed with extraneous content which dilutes the purpose of this type of book.
Tutor used Cliffs Notes to enhance understanding of Gatsby 28 Jun. 2013
By pippilongstocking - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was tutoring an at-risk high school student (learning disabled with a D in English) late in the academic year.
When Gatsby was assigned, I was really worried about how she would be able to handle it. Luckily, she was
a romantic at heart and really got into the story; but, also, we used Cliffs Notes to make sure we didn't miss
any interpretation of the story's many symbols. We found the Cliffs Notes test to be a helpful review, as well.
Her final grade in English? 200 points out of 200= an A.
