I like that my son is able to do some self-teaching. Science is not my forte, but I want him to get what he needs to succeed and advance. This curriculum is very helpful toward that end. The only thing to improve would be more step by step pictures/illustrations.
I love the whole Lifepac Sets. They've made my job of home schooling so much easier! Daily lesson plans ready to go (no more extra hours of preparing for each day/week) Plus they come with all the tests and answers and instructions on scoring. Makes my record keeping a breeze! A+ for material,quality and convenience.
For Science you'll still want to order some of the lab supplies and books for experiments. But I like that we can pick and choose which ones we want to do and order them when we need them.
With several engineers, a surgeon and a nurse practitioner in the family, science began early for our home schoolers. What the Lifepac science program has given them is structure and a sequential learning process.
