Don't confuse this with the dvd included in the bundle
RR did a great job with their Apologia deluxe sets. They are a great deal. Problem: They come with the classroom dvd. The guy sits and reads the lesson, which comes for free with the deluxe package on the included mp3. No experiments, no helps. Order the notebook, book set, and lab kit separately ... And order This! Companion cd. A huge help! So much better than the much more expensive dvd. Blech!

Nice Add-on for Apologia General Science
I purchased Apologia General Science to use with an older student who struggles with science and it really has been a good fit for him. I went the extra mile and bought the companion CD-Rom for the added features. I really like being able to use it view the videos or animated graphics. It adds more depth to our lessons. The videos aren't high quality but they are narrated and demonstrated by the author himself. The animated graphics are decent/mediocre. There are at least 3 for every module. The textbook will prompt you when there is a feature on the CD-Rom to go along with the lesson.

My only real complaint is that it's not always convenient to be by the computer during our science lesson. I have made it work though. If we "skip" a session on the CD-Rom I don't worry about it. The next time we see the prompt we will view the video/graphic from the current lesson and then the one that was "skipped". This way we get extra review of that topic. It works out perfectly.

Overall, I really like the CD-Rom. I will love it even more if I can use it again in a couple of years with another child, but with technology these days, that is not a guarantee. I love having it with our lessons but it's not essential. I'm not sure I would buy it again but I'm glad I have it. The CD-Rom is a great value for the money. I recommend it.

Am excited about having some audio/visual supplementation to the text

I think it might make the text and content even more interesting for the students.

To be a visual aid and to help with pronunciation. My husband who is a biology major feels this will be helpful plus it is referenced in the textbook.

This is such a great course. I chose this Cd to pair up with the sonlight schedule.

I am teaching it to a group of students, and I want to show the videos.

Works well with the curriculum, very helpful.

To help students who do not like to read a lot.
Paul L on Sep 7, 2016
I thought it would be helpful, so the children didn't have to search out things on the internet and possibly run across something undesirable. However, my daughter has since said the quality was not good. She said, "All the videos are super blurry."
Marci F on Sep 2, 2016
It's nice to have those videos for more in depth study.
