verb- to sparknote is: to use the resourses conveniently allocated at the website www.sparknotes.com to help one quickly absorb critical information on a piece of literature or reading material (that was either too stupid, too long, too boring, or one was just too stinking lazy to read) in order to allow the recieving of a good grade on the test or evaluation for the corresponding piece of literature.

Usage Note: The time at which one typically partakes in the act of sparknoting is usually in close proximity to the time of the test or evaluation, moreover, the night prior.

Not necessarily a tool for the slackers. People who have read the actual book can also use it to get grounds for their ideas, see important themes missed, and get aquinted with the public opinion; so that by the time of the actual test, one's opinion is supported, strong, ellaborative and analytical.

Besides, it's written in good English and is proven to be surprisingly reliable; with the exeption of some trivial tries for 'abstract' thought wandering, which could be easily spotted, anyhow.
