Great program, but know this before buying...
July 29, 2011
I think that this is a wonderful program, based on the little bit that we used it. I bought it to TRY with my youngest daughter in her senior year, not sure exactly what we'd be doing and thinking I could resell the Saxon text and DIVE program when finished. Long story short, after using DIVE briefly, we switched math gears for various reasons, and when I went to resell it, I found out that I couldn't do that because of the EULA (End Users License Agreement.) I can't even give it to a friend! It is completely non-transferable (legally.)
My big beef is that this was not mentioned in the sales description, and I wouldn't have bought the program had I known. It does say it on the CD packaging, but evidently I missed it, perhaps because I didn't expect, perhaps since most non-OEM software today IS transferable if you remove it from your computer first.
So DIVE is definitely a great value if you use the entire program, and especially if you have a number of kids in your family that will use it. But it was not at all a good value for us!
This is an excellent companion to the Saxon curriculum. Dr. Shormann takes the student through the study of calculus lesson by lesson. He has a very careful and concise style that clarifies each concept. I think calculus would have been incredibly difficult without the DIVE CD. With it, we could easily include calculus in our home school curriculum and have each lesson available on CD.
