So far so good
I have only had it a few months. It is definitely self teaching ( What I was looking for and needed). My 8th grade daughter loves it and is doing it all without me. I did need to buy a couple items for her experiments (only because I didn't have them on hand). She is also including her younger sisters when she does the experiments and they are enjoying learning "big sister's science" (even though they have their own).

Apologia Physical science set
I really like Apologia in general but this is nice because it has summaries for each module also. One thing I don't like though about the solutions manual is how the tests are in a separate booklet. I would have preferred for the booklet to still be inside of the solutions manual.

Well, this is the first time using a non-traditional book. Going into High School next year. Hoping can use Apologia again.

I reviewed the book, tests and solutions.
Work is schedule is already set up for student/parent.
Stress free
Student reads, does a lab, logs, reads again. [ Luv this

My child likes the book
easy to read and follow.
Labs are set up so child can do them [Of course with
adult supervision].

We love Apoligia. The experiments are simple to follow and provides specific instructions. My daughter is learning vocabulary science terms. Apologia is also a faith based curriculum which is an added bonus to our home school experience.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Apologia science! I have tried many curriculums with my kids--Ace Abeka BJU--but I find that Apologia is the easiest to understand because of the conversational/lecture style writing of the text It's not as graphic intensive or colorful as the others but if your child learns well by reading it is excellent science! We are using the Physical Science this year having already used General and Biology and it is simply fascinating and enlightening science! I think the biggest difference is that Apologia is written FOR homeschoolers as opposed to the other curriculums simply being available TO homeschoolers I read ahead in my son's book every day and I am also learning so much The only thing that I am not a fan of are the labs included in the book It would be nice to have a separate lab workbook that would make labs and writeups easier to get done but all in all the science is absolutely solid college prep and highly interesting We are definitely continuing on with Apologia through Chemistry Physics and Marine Biology

This is the required text for Classical Conversations Challenge 1 program. However, I highly recommend these science texts regardless. They are thorough and offer Biblical perspective.

My high school son is having trouble with the ABeka Physical Science, so we are looking for a physical science book that he can understand.
Laura C on Aug 29, 2018
I looked at it at my cousins house and it looked good, then my son started reading it and I had to drag him away from it when it was time to go. He loves science and it looks challenging enough for him, and user friendly for me!

Does it count like a high school credit if done for 9th grade?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we used it for 9th grade science. If you are just concerned about counting differences for your student's transcript, then yes, you can consider it a science for 9th grade. If however, your student is college- bound, then you need to check the requirements of the college(s) that they are interested in, as some will not accept Physical Science as a high school level course. Also check to see how many total science courses they require - if they only require 2 or 3, then just make sure your student studies the courses they will accept (generally Biology, Chemistry, and Physics).
Do the tests come in this set?
David P on Aug 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This set comes with the Textbook, the Solutions Manual, and a thin perforated pamphlet of the module tests (the quarterly tests are not included in the pamphlet). The tests are also in the Solutions Manual, but the perforated pamphlet is designed to allow your student to have the test without you giving them the solution manual or having to make a copy. I found that there wasn't enough room for my student to write answers on the tests anyway, so we didn't really use the pamphlet.
Has a lot changed since the old edition? I have a copy of the 1st edition but would need the notebook and audio ... just wondering if it'd be best to get the new text as well.
carrie k on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used the first edition with my oldest son who is now 25 and out of college for two years. I can't tell you specific differences, but with my youngest son I purchased the second edition because science is an area where things change pretty quickly. Theories are disproven and new theories introduced and I wanted him to have the most current information (me too).
