The glossary sections are the weakest part of this book. They include words that are typically understood before one goes to college. Granted, vocabulary acquisition in the US is extremely variable. It can be variable among siblings in the same home. The glossary level seems to span elementary school level to perhaps high school.
The text analysis is about at a junior high or high school level for the most part. That said, this level would still be challenging for many students at local area community colleges. Again, there is such a variation in learning in this country.
For those reasons, I think this version of Cliff's Notes on Melville's Moby Dick, while a good addition to the home library, it is not a great addition. It can help younger or less experienced readers understand Moby Dick to a far better degree than most people in the United States. Considering the place that Moby Dick holds in American literature, anything that helps more people understand it, the better.

Easy to read and understand. Easy to follow. I feel like I got a good grasp of Melville's work. Very good for class.Published on May 12, 2013 by Gary J Cimperman
Nothing much to say except my husband says "they were fine," and they took a lot of time out of reading the complete book!Published on June 24, 2008 by Piano
Kids, think of this as an ice cream sundae with only the vanilla film and a speck of fudge on the inside of the sundae glass. Read morePublished on March 3, 2006 by Herm Melville
