Homeschool Specialist Review

Biology is usually a high school student's first major science course with lab work. The curriculum my family selected was Exploring Creation with Biology. I chose Apologia because of the creation-based perspective and stayed with Apologia all through my children's middle school and high school years.

Just before my oldest child was beginning high school, I attended a conference that featured Dr. Jay Wile as a speaker. He was so encouraging about taking on high school-level classes that may not be in our area of expertise. He said parents become fellow learners alongside their children. He really helped take the pressure off! We're there to help our children find their way. A child who learns how to dig in until they arrive at a place of understanding will be equipped for a future as a lifelong learner.

The 594-page hardcover Student Textbook is broken into 16 modules. Each day your student will read a few sections and answer questions. The labs are spread throughout the textbook. Each chapter has a study guide and a summary that will help the student prepare for the module exams. All the answers are included in the 200-page Solutions & Test Book.

The labs will require extra equipment and specimens. Check out the convenient lab kits CBD carries; there are several sets available to make gathering necessary supplies and equipment easy. You'll need a microscope and prepared slides, as well as dissecting equipment and specimens.

    I read through these other reviews.This book is very well explained and my daughter just loved it.She understood everything perfectly.The only reason why I did a four star was because their weren't almost any real pictures,only diagrams in the Module 5 that I did.I also didn't really appreciate the way the sections were set apart.They were not marked clearly where one section ends and another one begins.So I didn't really like that aspect.Overall all though I really enjoyed the text and the explanation

    My daughter took Apologia Biology in 9th grade. She wanted to attend public school the next year and I was a little nervous about passing an EOC with a curriculum that is not developed to the test. She took the Biology in 9th grade and finished in May of her 9th grade year. She started public school the following August and they pulled her out of class in October to take the EOC without warning or preparation (they had originally told her it wouldn't be until December, so she thought she would review closer to that date). She passed the EOC with a 4 out of 5 possible five months after finishing the curriculum. Apparently she learned and retained something. Now the Florida EOC for Biology has a lot of evolution stuff on it, Apologia science does teach about the hypothesis called a theory of Evolution, it doesn't lead you into phases of supposed evolutionary ideas. In other words, Apologia sticks to reliable facts and teaches the fallacies of evolution. My daughter took Chemistry at the public school in 10th grade and made an A, so Apologia must have prepared her well (or public school Chemistry is easy).

    I've used Apologia for 3 years now, and they've never failed to meet my expectations. Material is easygoing, relaxed, and easy to read. You have what mot textbooks lack: a true conversation with the reader!! You feel as though the author is talking directly to you, and I love being able to relate to what he is saying. Very very pleased, once again. Would recommend any Apologia books!!

    I've taught this course in groups of 12-23 students for the past 10 years. It is written for 9-12 grade levels, but I've had most of my 8th graders do very well. It requires hard work because it's challenging, but all of my students felt they'd gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and were excited about the volume of material they'd learned by the end of the year. I've also had two students CLEP out of college freshman biology. I love teaching it from a special creation perspective and giving my students some tools with which to defend their faith in an evolution-saturated society. This course is awesome!

    You will not find a better, more user-friendly science curriculum anywhere. My daughter and I soared through this material. It is written so that not only will the student understand it, but so will the parent who's been out of the school system for 20 some odd years! After studying this book with my child, I found that science was actually interesting! I also like the fact that you don't need to purchase any additional workbooks for the next child to use,all content questions are thoroughly answered and lab materials are easily found in the home. I highly recommend any of the Apologia textbooks!

Q: Did anyone buy a lab kit to go with it? I have a squeamish child who doesn't want to dissect anything. Did you buy/use any of the lab material, and if so, what was useful, and what, if anything, was unnecessary?

A:

If your student is uncomfortable with the dissection experiments, you could forgo them and simply have your student watch them in one of the many DVD formats that are available.

Q: Does this come with an extra test booklet?

A:

Yes, this pack does contain an extra test booklet.
