If your child might be attending college, this is an EXCELLENT high school Chemistry course to prepare them for higher Chemistry classes later on in college. My husband is a College Chemistry professor, and was very impressed with this course. We used it with our son, and he has done well in his College level Chemistry classes thanks to this preparation course.
We love Apologia and use their studies for all our science courses. I have two elementary students and two high school students so we have experience with the upper and lower level studies. We also used Apologia's Around the World in 180 Days last year and loved it!! This is a wonderful company that is producing outstanding curricula for Christian homeschoolers!
This course is a very thorough study of chemistry. It prepared my daughter well for the science major chemistry she took her first year in college. It is challenging to do, though, requiring a lot of math ability. It's supposed to be doable after Algebra 1, but I think waiting until after Algebra 2 would be wiser.
