Program is good...material not so much
January 11, 2013
My son enjoyed using the program. However, I found several mistakes in the material. One mistake I remember was that SOS taught that Alaska and Hawaii are in the same time zone. They are not. I wonder how many other mistakes I missed, especially when we worked on his own. (As a side note, I was using an older version, 2009 I believe. )
We had been praying for quite a while to find a product that we could use on our children's laptops that would meet our expectations. SOS is that product. We checked out several SOS reviews, spoke with the company several times and decided to try one subject first. In the techno world that we live in we wanted to switch over to the computer slowly in our homeschooling. We ordered the SOS 3rd grade Science and so far it has worked out great. They seem to be retaining what they learned in their lessons and that was our goal. They have their own laptops, so they do their Science at different times. We chose to load the full CD on each of their computers and let me put the teacher portion on each computer with a password. You can also use a main computer for the teacher portion, but you have to have the wireless access for them to do their school work. There are times when we are on the road and don't have access to wireless, so we did not use the client install. I thought that perhaps they would get bored with the initial layout, but because each lesson is different that has not been an issue. One of the things that I am wanting in our home school is for our children to be able to study and do their classes independently. Another plus for us personally is that we like the KJV of the Bible and you have a choice of that and NASB. Set up is very easy, and the SOS Technical Support is just a phone call away. Overall this product has met our needs more than I expected and that makes me and our children very happy. Next year we are going to add the Health elective and Bible.
