Rated 5 out of 5┬áby kulak0603 awesome
We are 1 week into our first year with BJU. We absolutely love the distance learning dvds. It really helps mom too with the mom minutes. Absolutely love the program so far and compared to other homeschool experiences we have had, this one has gone much smoother and has been much easier to understand and follow!!!! Love how each subjuect reinforces our faith! We simply couldn't be happier!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby armom bju is a good curriculum yet time consuming
The dvd's are great in a lot of ways, but they require massive amounts of time. My son spends twice as much time on 2nd grade as my girls do on 4th (using another curriculum). The extras that are great when you have a class of kids just seem like a waste with one student. I would like to see the DVDs catered to the individual and not extra time consuming fluff. That's just our experience so far. However, I fully believe BJU produces great students.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Albina Second Grade DVD Kit
Used Abeka for two years and this year decided to give BJU a try. Very satisfied with the product, very happy that we made the switch. Many pro's with a few con's. The pro's for us include the fun and always different teachings. Very visual and engaging for the child. The worksheets are also colorful and fun to do wile being challenging academically. The con's for us include not having the Teachers edition in hand. We are not liking the cd's at all. Considering that we already are paying such a high price for the whole kit, I hoped all of that would already be included. Cd's are VERY inconvenient. Also wish there wasn't so much other things on other cd's for me to refer to or print. Got very confusing in the beginning. The other con is that because BJU is always updating their videos and worktext, I have found that quite a few times the dvd lesson did not correspond with the dvd manual or the textbooks looked different, which confused the student and myself. With all that said, my child and I LOVE BJU and are planning on continuing with in for years to come. Hopefully the TE's become an item included, to have a choice of CD or Book upon ordering would be SUPER!

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Bonnie The program is great with the exception of Spelling this year.
We are only 2 weeks into school and I am very disappointed in the spelling this year. Last year was so awesome and we were expecting the same this year. I love how reading is set up this year. Love that English, spelling, reading,and handwriting are all separated this year.
The thing I like most about this program is that I am not the teacher. That the teacher is on the screen. That seems to work for ASD son.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby bjumomof4 Off to a Great Start!
This is our first year doing homeschooling. My son is enjoying the start of his 2nd grade year with BJU DVD's. The teachers are wonderful and friendly! The work is challenging, but not too hard or too easy. It took me a little while to figure out exactly where to find the extra support materials, whether on a disk, back of the student book, or the CD in the back of teachers addition book. It is going more smoothly now and I am really enjoying the classes right along with my 2nd grader! Looking forward to seeing how he does the rest of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby BSmith Excellent!
This is my first year using BJU and it has been a wonderful experience. The videos are top notch and the teaching is phenomenal. The lessons are interesting, engaging, thorough, thought-provoking, Biblically-based and FUN (lessons are taught using graphics, experiments, "field trips," puppets and special guests). My daughter actually gets excited to do work, especially with science. This makes me very happy because she wants to learn.
BJU has definitely made my life a little easier with three children. With the dvd program, I let the teachers teach and I'm there if they need extra help. The curriculum includes a detailed schedule of what needs to be done everyday. This way, my children are able to work independently as I monitor. Thank you BJU!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Mom2Many Fabulous With One Exception
I LOVE the dvd's for my 2 children. The teachers do a great job keeping the classes exciting! I am very impressed with the detailed information given in the Orientation of each subject. The teachers manuals would be much easier to use if they were stil providedl in hard copy form other than cd. That is the only reason I am not giving a glowing 5 star review in each category.
