This is a good beginning science text to help prepare your student for more advanced studies in highschool. The new study workbooks may be helpful for some students, but is not necessary. The text contains study guides at the end of each chapter, as well as On Your Own problems and experiments throughout each module. These will adequately prepare the student for the tests, which are contained in a separate booklet.

Overall I really like this book. Secular texts fail to recognize the hand of a creator and Dr. Wile discusses many of these secular viewpoints in an intelligent manner. However, he too has a limited viewpoint writing from a biblical creationist viewpoint. There are many ways to interpret creation in the bible, and this can be an opportunity to discuss this with your children.

this book is a lot of reading, but well done. I would only recommend the text version as the CD version is difficult to use unless you are very, very familiar with the text and willing to use the Apologia private website as well.

Pros
Vast in topic choices and well covered
Cons
CD version does not correlate with the student workbook. Very frustrating. One must log into the Apologia private site and download a guide to know how to navigate. Very frustrating.

I only recommend the text book version. It is excellent.

Great science curriculum. I like the layout even better than exploring creation younger years series. The notebooks are much better too.
