    This version combines 36 of the music lessons from Music Ace and Music Ace 2 into a single, carefully constructed product. It does not include all the lessons of Music Ace Gold, but it does include enough instruction for students to master important music concepts and skills. Maestro Max still leads students through the lessons and the Music Doodle Pad is still included. Thirty-six games (one per lesson) sharpen music skills while adding lots of fun, and this edition allows you to determine the game difficulty as well. Other features of the deluxe version enable users to select clef instruction (treble and bass, treble only, bass only, or alto only), determine rhythmic stringency (relaxed or strict), and adjust the appearance of notes (with or without faces). The software tracks the progress of up to 10 users, and like all the Music Ace versions, the lessons are self-paced and work for any instrument. The deluxe version also features more than 2000 musical examples from 75 composers to reinforce traditional music instruction, both vocal and instrumental. The software is also compatible with general MIDI keyboards (which are optional for the use of the product). Great coverage of beginning music topics including note reading, ear training, notation, keyboard, scales, rhythm, melody, key signatures, time signatures, harmony, and musical terms. Operates on Windows and Macintosh. System Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X.411 or later. 50 MB free RAM, 60 MB free hard disk space, 16 bit sound, CD-ROM and mouse. ~ Rachel

    The revised SAT puts a greater emphasis on analysis and problem solving than previously. This book combines preparation for math, reading, writing and essays along with time-saving strategies, much like most test prep books out there, except for one thing… humor! Yes, a funny SAT prep book sounds odd and yet when you give a high school kid a huge prep book and tell him to dig in, what is his reaction? Gasp! Gulp! It can be intimidating to say the least. Here, six students who aced the SAT provide tips, commiserate with the reader about the pressure they feel and guide them to be confident on test day. Anxiety is a big reason that students bomb their exams. Becoming familiar with what is actually on the text and how to approach it can do wonders for a student’s confidence. This book is readable. It’s friendly. It gives you the facts in a way that sticks. But it’s not just tips; there are loads of practice questions with narratives about what to focus. The text is practical, readable. Unlike some of the huge test prep books, I think your student will actually read this one!, 7x9”, (.75” thick!),  357pp, pb ~ Sara
