I like this kit but for me I wouldn't order it again had I realized how expensive it would be compared to what you get. I like the fact that it is separated into what you need for each lesson and labeled very nicely. Most of the supplies in the kit I already had in my home. There is a pretty long list of supplies that I have to get on my own anyway that are not in the kit. So, if you are considering this kit please stop and see what you already have around your home and what is not in this kit that you will need. I got it quite a bit cheaper by purchasing it from christianbook.com but it was still pricey. At a few other places on line this same kit was way more expensive. I wouldn't recommend it because I believe it's over priced for the amount of supplies you get.
This is the first apologia science kit we've purchased. I am very impressed on the organization. You receive the items already bundled and labeled according to the lesson(Lesson#1 will have a sticker on the outside of the ziplock bag with all the items listed, and it will tell you if you need to supply an item, and it will say" found in Lesson 3, for example if it's used for more than one lesson. I will be buying astronomy next year, and I will purchase the kit with it as well! I've had other moms tell me they too believed the kit was worth buying. It will save you time and frustration, It seems like a lot of money, and it is, but it made doing the experiments so enjoyable!
I was very happy with this product. Truthfully, I a tend to be a lazy person when it comes to gathering materials to do science experiments. I think experiments are worthwhile, I just don't feel like looking for all the materials. This science kit has done the majority of all that work for me. Not to mention, they have it all bagged up by lessons. I do have to provide some things, but the majority of those things I actually have in the house. So the convenience this kit provides is worth the money, in my opinion.
