Rated 4 out of 5¬†by Jasm DVD curriculum
Overall, the curriculum is very good. Two things I wish will be improved is the volume of the disc when played in the computer. It is hardly discernible. Secondly, to get to a specific part of part the lesson you have to rewind the disc all the way through to get to a specific part which is very time-consuming.

Rated 5 out of 5¬†by HomesCool Homeschooling with peace of mind
I've been a homeschooling mom now for 6 years. I started when my oldest daughter was going in the ninth grade. I tried many different homeschooling methods and many different curriculum products. I found myself at my wits end trying to pull everything together and with some methods I was going crazy trying to figure out what to teach when and how. My daughter has since graduated home high school but I have another child who just started first grade. I was once again trying something different and once again found myself frazzled. In the middle of the so called school year I started researching more ways to homeschool and came across BJU press via Ken Ham's endorsement. I was leaning towards a distance learning program and after many weeks of contemplating and reading about BJU homeschool distance learning, I took the dive. I am so glad I did! I finally feel like something is working. I just don't have the time to sit down and teach my son the core education he needs. With the distance learning program, I have become only the teachers helper which is such a RELIEF for me. I love how BJU set up a daily schedule that lists all the materials I will need for that day. I don't have to hunt through each teachers manual to find such crucial information. The best part is my son is receiving a strong biblical education. I am very pleased! If you feel overwhelmed, do try distance learning.
I rated the quality of this product only four stars because some of the DVD's have a low picture quality. You can still see everything, it's just a nuisance being slightly blurry. I'm not even viewing them on a high def tv.
P.S. I love Mr's Walker and her teaching tips

This curriculum saved my sanity when we had a new addition to the family who joined us by adoption. Her needs were detrimental to my ability to work with my older daughter. My daughter now has a wonderful teacher that she loves to listen to on the DVDs. She feels like she knows Mrs. Walker personally and is happy to do everything she says. I am still able to oversee the process and help with homework so I can enjoy having a part in the education of my older child without being overwhelmed by the needs of the little one.
