Clarity to high school chemistry
Dr. Wile explains everything very thoroughly and the textbook is written so it is easy to understand. The audio version is perfect for accommodating audio learners. We tried another curriculum but it was too confusing. Dr. Wile brings clarity to high school chemistry.

Great HS Chemistry course
This is a classic Dr. Jay L. Wile science textbook like all other Apologia text. It is an excellent chemistry course for high school in the same tradition as the first 2 editions of Apologia Chemistry. For some reason Apologia chose different authors for their 3rd edition of their Chemistry book.

Great book!
I have several Chemistry books, including 2nd and 3rd edition Apologia books, and although I love Apologia and have used almost all of their Science books, for Chemistry I find this one to be much clearer and easier to use and understand.

A rigorous and exciting option for Chemistry
I teach Chemistry in a homeschool co-op. After years of using something else, I switched to Discovering Design with Chemistry. I LOVED it and my students were challenged yet their interest was held throughout. I will definitely be using this again and again.

Dr. Wile Chemistry revised
This is our 3rd attempt at Chemistry! We bought Apologia's second edition but it seemed a little dated. Then we found out there was a 3rd Apologia edition, but not written by Dr. Wile. We bought it but given all the controversy surrounding which printing had been corrected, I lost confidence in it. Much to my son's chagrin I opted to go back to Dr. Wile in this version and it was just what we were looking for: the same conversational style and thorough explanations. My son is now in Module 3. I asked him if he was glad we switched and he said he was!

Greatly improved!
I liked the high school Apologia in the past but we had issues with the inconsistency of calculating the problems when it came to significant digits. At times, we waited days for a clarification on a calculation, which was frustrating.

I believe I spoke with Dr. Wile's new partner who was very confident in the organization of the material and the final product. He assured me that questions would be answered quickly, and he was true to his word.

The new program, Discovering Design with Chemistry, also comes with printable questions as well as video links without having to purchase a supplemental DVD! (Thankfully, there is no Red Wagon element to this program.) In my opinion, DDC is streamlined and efficient. Although we are only in module 3, it appears to be almost "perfected."

I would definitely recommend this product!

I like Dr Jay Wile and decided to use this curriculum set for Chemistry after reading many favorable reviews of it.
Bethany P on Aug 15, 2018
I bought this book because my homeschool co-op teacher was using it to teach high school chemistry. We LOVE Dr. Wile. He is a one of a kind science curriculum writer and brillant! We especially appreciate the way he weaves in the Biblical worldview into his books. We are also excited about his new children's curriculum series as well.

Does each student need his/her own lab kit for this course, or would it work for two students to share?

BEST ANSWER: Two students could share and do it as lab partners. My son finished the course and there are enough lab supplies for my daughter to do the labs on her own. I did buy extra beakers and larger test tubes in case of breakage or if he wanted to expand the experiments. He did use about half of the copper sulfate, but less than half of all the other chemicals. We purchased the simple burner(looks like the bottom half of an kerosene lamp) with the wire mesh stand.

He loved this book and the way it was laid out and how clearly concepts were taught.
