GinnyJinPA5 Stars Out Of 5Great program, but know this before buying...July 29, 2011GinnyJinPAValue: 1I 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!
NMCloudFxAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A great set of calculus lecturesJuly 15, 2011NMCloudFxAge: 18-24Gender: maleThis is an excellent set of lectures for the Saxon Calculus book. Dr. Shormann does a better job of explaining and demonstrating than the book's lessons do.
Of course, as well as it describes the concepts, this CD is worth only so much without the corresponding book's sets of practice problems.
CarinaHouston, TXAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is an excellent calculus supplement.July 14, 2011CarinaHouston, TXAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
