Rated 5 out of 5 by MyKidsCallMeMom Excellent product!
As a homeschooling mom with four kids, I needed a top notch curriculum that would work for varied age groups and not overwhelm me. BJU Press has provided that blessing.
With my 3rd grade son, I provide simple materials that I can usually find at the grocery store, occasionally clarify instructions or help him know where to find answers to workbook questions, assist on projects (most of which are labeled as OPTIONAL), and grade his work. We use the online option, so nearly everything I need is neatly laid out on the website including daily links to my grading materials. BJU Press makes my part simple. It did take a few weeks to figure out where to find everything, so I gave the 'ease of use' 4 stars. My son requires mild supervision to stay focused. The videos, however, are much more entertaining than listening to me teach the subject matter. We are both very pleased at this point (half way through the curriculum).
I love the piece of mind that my children are receiving an excellent, well-rounded education from fun and knowledgable instructors who love the Lord and love to teach!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tracy Not a favorite.
Too expensive as a single class. Which is a pity because it all we needed. And my son (3rd grade) felt the video presentation was too babyish. We might use these products again for upper grades, but not anytime soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorrie A Solid Math Program
It is a solid, mastery based math program, but also includes problems from previous chapters so that your child doesn't forget what he/she has already learned. The videos are engaging, and the themes for each year add enrichment to the program that you don't often see in other programs. Any instructional video that can make your child laugh out loud while they learn is a winner in my book!
Parents, the DLO version offers you everything you need to teach this subject. Teacher Editions, lesson plans, extra worksheets, and supplemental materials are all included in your "parent portal" online. For those with limited space to homeschool, this is an awesome benefit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Liberty Fun!
I've never had writing assignments greeted with, "Hooray!" until we started using BJU online English3. We have happily used the manual and work texts at home for years, but didn't realize what we were missing by not using the video lessons until we tried them. Mrs. Cox is sweet, but Rozi the writing rat (Rossi - hmm... I should ask my kids for the correct spelling, I'm sure they would know) is our favorite. The antics of the Grammar Guys aren't far behind.
It is nice to have lessons that leave everyone begging for more.
