This is an engaging science text written in first person. It's so informative and interesting to read. I love that the author included some science history to help the student understand science even better. The experiments are helpful in illustrating the concepts well. There are also so many supplemental resources available to help the student. We bought only the multimedia cd-rom, which is fantastic, but for those wanting more, it's available!
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.
Grade levels used
Vast in topic choices and well covered
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.
Do you recommend?
I only recommend the text book version. It is excellent.
