I really wanted to have videos of the biology labs as I wasn't feeling confident.
This was helpful for us.

Helpful compliment to the text & student notes.
I have asked my daughter to read the text first but I’m pretty sure she sometimes does it after or follows along with the video. My daughter is in gr 9 and does her work independently so I don’t actually know how long the videos are. There are videos covering the material from the text as well as videos showing the lab work, which has also been really helpful as we opted to forgo purchasing a microscope, so at least she’s able to view the material under a microscope through watching the video and this has been sufficient for us. We’ve been really happy with this resource.

Not what I thought, but still good
I may not have read carefully, but this is not an actual DVD in the sense that you pop it in to your DVD player in the living room and sit down to watch a 1/2 hour or so lecture. Rather it is for the computer and contains video segments ranging from 1-8 minutes long for each topic in the modules. I was bummed about that, since I was going to watch it with my son and niece once a week, but the set up is not conducive to that. However, we do watch it at home, and when we do co-op for labs, we all watch how to prepare and set up the experiments. That makes it less work for me!

Fantastic new resource!!
This DVD series is exactly what our homeschool science was missing! We use apologia science through our co-op and Although we can do the labs there, we were missing the lecture/instruction element. This DVD has helped to round out the science lesson perfectly! Truly an answer to prayer.

Must be used on a computer, not dvd player!
This is my first experience with a dvd that doesn't play in a dvd player, and I've had to rework my plans for how/where/when my son and I will watch the videos. That said, we are very happy with the video so far. The material is clear, and it provides a good introduction before reading the textbook (yes, I know that's the opposite order suggested by Apologia, but it's what works for us). Despite having already homeschooled four children without the videos, I like this enough that I will probably buy the instructional dvd's for the courses above this as my youngest progresses through the different high school science classes.

Exploring creation with Biology dvd
I am so thankful I ordered the DVD that goes along with exploring creation with Biology. My daughter has looked forward to the video. The teacher does not read the text but she does present the material in the same order. There are visuals that go along with the material being presented. I feel those visuals have been a big help for my daughter in connecting with the information. The price seemed like a lot yet, looking back it has been worth it! I will order the DVD for her next science!

I have the books already, but I needed additional help with the experiments.
Mary T on Sep 18, 2018
It is a great resource for a student taking the class or a teacher needing a little more explanation on the concepts and experiments.
Jenn C on Sep 12, 2018
I don't have the time to pre-read the text to help explain it, so this is the next best thing to having a live teacher.
User on Aug 26, 2018
My kids enjoy the opportunity to watch a lecture in addition to reading the text.
Amie P on Aug 21, 2018
Helps guide us while doing the experiments. We then know we're on target.

My daughter was struggling with the book and we thought this series of videos would help understand the concepts.
Laura A on Jun 22, 2017
I thought it would be helpful for my son and they were!
Heidi K on Mar 28, 2017
I chose this to help us understand the experiments in the book and what they should look like.
Jennifer H on Mar 10, 2017
My son has a love for Biology and I want to give him more than I have to offer. After his asking for this DVD for the past month and seeing his dilligent effort and work to make the most that he can by himself out of the course, I chose to invest in his knowledge!
Renee H on Feb 27, 2017
These DVD's have been highly recommended to me by other homeschool parents.

To supplement co-op class
Kandi T on Oct 30, 2016
After reading numerous reviews, this biology program seemed like the best choice for my high school homeschool student. We started off just using the books but decided the book would work best with the DVD teacher.
Valerie J on Oct 7, 2016
Way better price than any where else I researched on the internet.

For 9th Grade Lab Science requirement
Catherine L on Aug 22, 2016
We use it through a co-op, where only the labs are done at co-op. I needed help on the lecture/instruction end that happens at home. I am super excited to use this and hope it is the answer to my prayers about how to do science better at home!
Beth P on Aug 4, 2016
Program is required by the school. I got the videos and student notebook to add interest and help my student retain the lesson knowledge.

Teaching Co-op
Michelle M on Jun 27, 2016
I am teaching biology to a group of high school students at co-op for the first time
Raegan C on Jun 17, 2016
My student needed instruction that I don't have time to teach, and simply reading the text was not enough for comprehension.
Serene S on Jun 15, 2016
We watched a sample lesson and experiment and we loved how she broke down all the steps and having the capability of stopping and starting to do the experiment with an instructor was very appealing.
Jodi L on Jun 6, 2016
This time we are going to try and do at home instead of with a homeschool group. Therefore, I wanted to try the DVD until I feel more confident.
Bonnie C on Jun 3, 2016
The Labs are like being there
Felicia P on Mar 31, 2016
The instructor makes biology more interesting as she presents the information in the same order as the book. There are also visuals that help the student to see what is being taught. This DVD made biology a subject she enjoys doing so much that she does it without any encouragement from me.
Charles k on Feb 24, 2016
The Rainbow Resource price was the best I could find online. I have two students in need of Science instruction and I believe this is the best material to give them a quality experience in Biology.
Tricia B on Jan 19, 2016
My son is visual and watching someone explain the material in a fresh new way is very helpful for retention. He watches it as a preparation for the test and to bring all the information together in his mind.
Karyn S. on Nov 27, 2015
Suggestion of friend
Kimberlee G on Nov 12, 2015
We originally started with just the book but soon realized how much more our kids would get out of this course with the DVD instructor and already prepared slides and dissection specimens.

If you buy this dvd set do you also need the companion CD-Rom?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not unless you want your child to "read" the book on the computer. The DVD is a condensed video version of the text with the labs. I watched the DVD's in order to teach the class (no time to read & take notes on everything & I'm a very visual learner). It was very helpful for me! I believe the CD is just the text on the computer, maybe with some more information on the labs, but I'm not sure.
We no longer have a computer with a CD drive. Is this downloadable? I am very interested in it for my daughter.
A shopper on Jun 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don’t think so.
How long are the videos, and do you have your child read the textbook before or after them?
A shopper on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We are just getting started so my observations are limited. She lectures on each individual section of the module. So if you open your book to the Table of Contents and look at Module 1, there is literally a brief lecture for each of those sections from the Introduction to the Experiment. All together these segments ended up to be approximately an hour of lecture. Because they are segmented, you can easily divide them into shorter manageable chunks if needed. In college I was taught to briefly skim the material you would be covering in class, go to the lecture, and use the text and notes to solidify the information presented. If you were going to use these videos, that would be my suggestion. Look at the study guide questions at the end of the chapter to see what information you will be covering in the module. Then watch your designated lectures and follow them with the text and notebook. I can't speak intelligently about the experiment details, as I am just now getting exposed to Module 1. Module 1 experiment is very detailed including images of what are seen through the microscope. So far I am impressed and glad I got it. I haven't looked beyond Module 1.
Is there a sample lesson that can be viewed?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Actually, there is a sample on our website. It's labeled "Download a Misc" so it's not surprising you didn't recognize it. It's located just below the Category Description section at this link:

If I purchase this for use at home, does it come with a schedule so I know how to use it?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In the textbook, it will let you know when to watch certain DVD episodes.
Can this be used as a stand alone biology class? Or is text book a must
A shopper on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is absolutely meant to go along with the book. There is a video on each section you read but it won't have definition of terms or any study guide questions or tests, if you want those. While it does show each of the labs it doesn't have the step by step directions which I think you will need.
