This is a great course for high school students, and also for adults as a refresher course or folks such as myself who are not well educated on this subject. Two of my favorite features of this study is that the text and activity pac are separate, and there are several activities, such as essays and "think" questions, that encourage independent thought.
After 27 years of hsing, I should have known better than to buy this type of curriculum. The content is fine, but they still employ the laziest form of student assessment imaginable--the fill-in-the-blank sentence taken directly from the text. This means your student is not asked to actually think, but to go on a little hunt for the right word. What a ridiculous way to make a self-guided workbook. My poor son was still doing this long after he should have been done. I looked at the one he was working on and asked him a question about the content. He explained the answer to me in detail, but could not find the right word from the book. Needless to say, he was frustrated. I looked and I couldn't find it either. I will be spending extra evenings making our own self-tests that accurately assess whether he is grasping the content or not. I will also be having plenty of discussions, and this was supposed to be the subject he did on his own this year. Don't buy this! It's perfectly awful.
