Rated 5 out of 5¬†by Nnick Our family loves the curriculum!
We're really impressed so far with the 4th grade curriculum! Trying to economize, we started out with dvds only, then sent it all back and ordered the dvds with books after seeing how integral the books are to the lessons.
BJU isn't cheap, and that was prohibitive to us at first. For different reasons, most pointedly because the dvds have such a dated feel to them (10+ years old), we strongly feel that BJU Press should be SELLING the dvds for the prices they charge, not leasing them.
However, for our family at this time, the high price has been worth it. Our daughter, who has always been homeschooled had been asking for the last year to try public school. We prayed and prayed about a solution, and after just a week of the BJU Press dvd series, she came to me and said, "I like this kind of school so much that I don't want to go to public school anymore." For us, THAT was worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5¬†by MImom love the DVDs!
I was reluctant to use DVDs, having always used just the textbooks and since we don't have much spare cash. A friend urged me to try it, so this year was our first attempt. My boys absolutely love them! They find the teachers very interesting, learn more than they were learning before, and don't spend any extra time on school than in the past. I only wish I could keep them long enough for my daughter to use as well, rather than having to order them again. I also wish I had ordered the whole package, curriculum included, as that would have been almost the same price as I spent on used books plus new DVDs. We chose DVDs so we could take them in the car with us. I also wish I had been using the Bible curriculum all along. This was the first year we tried the Bible, and I absolutely love it! It has such thought-provoking questions and has triggered many profitable discussions with my children.
