    As in the other Novare science texts, there is a section written to the student in preparation for doing the course. Each chapter, then, includes objectives, information broken down into smaller digestible pieces, examples and illustrations, and wraps up with a chapter exercise. Green "Do You Know" boxes tell some interesting historical fact concerning the topic. Answers to computational questions are included with each exercise. The back of the text includes a glossary, reference data, chapter equations and objectives list, experiments with guidelines for keeping a journal, scientists to know, and accurate measurements. Chapters include nature of scientific knowledge, motion, Newton's Laws of Motion, energy, momentum, atoms/matter/substances, heat and temperature, pressure and buoyancy, waves/sound/light, introduction to electricity, DC circuits, fields and magnetism, and geometric optics.

    Five (out of six) of the experiments from the Experiments for Introductory Physics are found at the back of the student text. You can do just those five and still have very in-depth labs with lab reports. The experiment information found in the back of the student text is in addition to what is found in the Experiments for Introductory Physics book, so you will need both books.

    This fun and easy program is guaranteed to improve your typing ability. It is organized into lessons, tests, and practice material. "Next Step" lessons put you in command of the keyboard, and you use proven teaching methods, such as double and repetitive key-stroking to learn faster. It includes 10-key techniques and instructions for a split or standard keyboard. 3-D graphical hands help guide the student. Tests reinforce the skills that are practiced and provide a measurement of progress. These timed tests provide levels of advancement and make it fun by providing colorful photos and music. After completing any of the typing material, you get immediate feedback on your speed and accuracy with charts and graphs that allow you to see your progress and identify your weak areas. Multimedia presentations on the CD-ROM include the "History of Typing," which gives you a new perspective of the invention and development of typing and teaches the best hand and sitting positions. One of the awesome features on this CD-ROM is something called the Magazine Rack. It includes material from over 300 books, short stories, and articles that you can use to practice your typing with. Also, an Internet site has been designed for this product. New lessons, tests, special exercises, additional articles, and practice material are available to download when you want to use it. My favorite part of this program is the Virtual Adventures section. In this section, you can choose from ten fun games to improve your keyboard or 10-key skills. You have to type quickly and correctly to succeed in these fun games that make you forget you are improving your skills. The games include Sea Adventure, Flotsam Fighter II, Xtreme Typing, Gone Fishin', The Wild West, Tomb Typer, Cliffhanger, Diamond Glider, Typer Shark, and Erik the Viking. This program is for anyone who wants to improve their typing skills and doesn't mind having some fun along the way. Please note that this software comes in a paper sleeve, not a box. Minimum system requirements (Windows ONLY): Windows 7, Vista, XP, ME, 2000, or 98; 50 MB RAM; 580 MB Hard drive space. Rachel S.

    Learning the keyboard is imperative for today's student. Take your typing course to the next level with this 34-week course. Weekly lessons follow a similar format: a classroom or group lesson (parents can read through this lesson with their children) and four daily practice lessons. Practice lessons have the student review the material from the group lesson in daily increments followed by 10-20 minutes of typing practice per day. The author recommends a simple text editor like Microsoft Notepad®, Microsoft Wordpad® or Apple Textedit® (free with your computer operating system) for practice. These programs do not include spell checkers or auto correct features that will cover mistakes and prevent the student from learning correctly.

    The first weekly lesson in the textbook is critical to success. Covering the differences between typing and keyboarding, various keys, the QWERTY keyboard, correct typing posture along and more, the first week ends with a baseline 3-minute typing test. I appreciate the focus on correct hand position and sitting posture as a preventative measure against carpal tunnel syndrome. Lessons cover nearly every aspect of the computer keyboard. Here is just a sample of the skills learned: the space bar and enter key; home row, the letter keys, punctuation and special keys, shift key/caps lock key, practice with typing common words including articles, conjunctions, helping verbs, pronouns and prepositions, learning to use the numeric key pad, tabs/text alignment, typing a friendly letter or business letter, making a certificate of completion plus many others. Complete table of contents is available on our website. Keyboard shortcuts are covered in the appendix. Each lesson focuses on 3-4 letters before advancing to more complicated keys and skills which allows for mastery of material. Students needing more practice can review the practice lessons as necessary, as the suggested practice time is flexible to meet individual student needs.

    A timed typing test is included with every even-numbered lesson to assess student progress. Timed tests begin as one minute tests and progress in length to five minutes by the end of the course. A keyboarding speed progress chart is available at the back of the book to measure progress.

    You may wonder how this course compares to the author's Keyboarding for Homeschoolers -Summer Text? The complete content (13 lessons) from the Summer Text are repeated in this course. Additionally, this course provides more instruction on various special keys like the colon, apostrophe, question marks, brackets, tab key and text alignment, along with additional practice typing commonly used suffixes, helping verbs, pronouns, and prepositions and typing a friendly or business letter. This one year course provides more depth and practice, although some students may do well with a quick summer overview followed by time spent teaching themselves the additional keys and skills for keyboarding aptitude.

    All in all, this is a fully developed, systematic typing course that will provide your high schooler an elective credit on his transcript. It is worth mentioning that the course focuses on memorization of the keyboard through practice on a covered keyboard. A mini-keyboard with color-coded keys is a recommended resource and the author has included a reproducible copy in the textbook. Unfortunately, the color-coded keys are not well distinguished in the black and white graphic. I would recommend printing a keyboard with color-coded keys (coded for finger use) from the internet rather than using the included graphic. Whether college or workforce bound, keyboarding is a valuable skill that our young people need for success and this well-organized, easy to use course may provide them everything necessary for success.
