Subtitled Notes borrowed from the Smartest Kid in Class (Double-checked by an Award-Winning Teacher), that statement conveys the mood of this series. My kids devoured Brain Quest Products. “Did you know…? I bet you can’t guess…” echoed around the house. Now Brain Quest has applied the same contagious, streamlined and memorable approach to key subjects for middle schoolers. Written as though it’s a notebook borrowed from the smartest kid in class, kids are encouraged to read it and complete brief end-of-chapter review, making this notebook their own. Vocabulary words, definitions and key terms are highlighted. You’ll find diagrams, timelines, mnemonic devices and even doodles. While books vary in chapter total, topic and length, all cover the main points of middle school subjects, are over 500 pages and include a Check Your Knowledge section at each chapter’s end.

I chose these because I felt it will help my girls with study skills, research, and overall success with their school time. I don't expect it to replace our curriculum, but to enhance it.
