    Students watch as the instructor, Wes Olson, explains the definition of life and takes you through the days of Creation and the specimens created on those days. In order, you will learn about plants, water animals, flying creatures, land animals, and mankind, and wrap it all up with lessons about genetics. There are 4 DVDs for a total running time of 4 ½ hours. The author describes this course as a “super-condensed, fun-filled, fascinating overview of the world of biology.” If you grasp the basics taught in this program, you’ll have a solid understanding of biology. The 4th disc contains the PDF files. High school credits are based on hours spent on a course of study, and 120-180 hours constitutes one credit. This course totals 135 hours if you follow the accreditation schedule. You could add dissection labs or microscope labs for more content. Note that the activities in this course are simple labs like identifying plants and animals or watching a fish, so if you live in a state which requires lab sciences for high school credit you will need to make some additions.

    This reproducible book is a very complete collection of workbook pages to complement any study of biology. Use the pages to supplement your curriculum or simply for a review if they've already completed a biology course and want to brush up on the basics. The worksheet exercises feature charts to complete, matching exercises, crosswords, labeling, completing definitions, multiple choice questions, fill-in-the-blank questions, and classifying. A small sampling of the topics covered in includes cells, elements, bacteria, Punnett squares, genetics, human systems, structures of various animals, botany, metamorphosis, osmosis, diseases, and food webs. These worksheets would be especially beneficial if your curriculum is long on information and short on exercises. - Melissa

    What a wealth of information you have at your fingertips in these books! They're designed to include all the basic, important concepts vital to a full understanding of each subject, broken down into small, manageable chunks to help any student understand the subject better, and improve their grades along the way. Each chapter covers a broad biological concept, such as "Homo Sapiens: A Special Vertebrate," further subdivided into smaller body systems such as skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, circulatory and more. The chapters are fairly lengthy, and cover a wide range of topics, from the branches of biology, to cell chemistry, classification systems, basic chemical reactions, bacteria/viruses, the protists, fungi, green plants, invertebrates, chordates, humans, nutrition, diseases and the immune system, heredity/genetics, ecology, and evolution. Most evolutionary information is contained within one chapter, so you can easily skip over it - or use it as an opportunity to contrast current evolutionary thought against creationist theories!. Black and white illustrations complement the chapter information, providing charts, illustrations of organisms, life cycles, and more. Following each chapter is a series of study and review questions, including short answer, multiple choice, vocabulary, true/false, and long answer, as well as a short section on how this information pertains to real life skills in the field of a biologist, and a short chronology of the famous scientists whose work is featured in that chapter. At 370 pages, there is a lot of good, solid information here, and can be used as a backbone to a biology curriculum fleshed out with experiments and further reading, or as a handy reference to make sure you don't leave any gaps in your studies. After reviewing this book, I felt that I could have used it even in college to get some more background on some concepts that they breeze through rather quickly in college biology!
