3-0 out of 5 stars Excel@Middle School
Very simple/helpful, but with no availability to download product updates, it will (like most other programs) be obsolete within a short time. And apparently Knowledge Adventure has either merged with another company or disappeared almost without a trace, because the company that claims to handle their products is choosing to disavow all Knowledge of this particular item...

Otherwise if you don't mind not being able to get product support then the program seem to be easy to follow & a great refresher too...

3-0 out of 5 stars pros and cons
pros// the good thing about this program is well, it DOES teach you something. there's a lot to learn. they explain subjects to the last word. there's a calender for you to plan when you want to learn what.

cons// ok... it's boring. flat out from my mouth. there is a TON to read. from time to time a mini video would pop out. but it's probably two for every SUBJECT. they explain subjects, yes, but not everything. they don't explain how to solve a problem. ok, they do. but not so you can understand EVERY SINGLE STEP.

pointer:: if you buy this, i suggest* buying another reference book or CD. this is just a suggestion from me. if this program is easy for you when you buy it, they you obviously don't need another source.

3-0 out of 5 stars Defective cd
I wish I knew how ALL the cds were, but the few that would install were okay. The encyclopedia is very complete, and the typing is pretty good.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good value.
I purchased this six CD set mainly for the six previously released programs. These decent programs include Math Blaster Pre Algebra, but does NOT include Math Blaster Algebra. It is a little annoying that these programs are not on stand-alone CDs. You have to run the main program from the first CD, select the "extra" program and switch the CD when prompted. I am happy with the product, and would buy it again.

3-0 out of 5 stars Excel Mathematics
This product is good, but you have to do alot of reading like over 20 pagses per little lesson. It dosen't really have a great deal of video interaction. it is good but it is going to take about 2 months to get through it and it bores you after a well. and you have to take breaks or you won't be able to go on. ...

This software is so repetitive...the same format is used for all the letters. Beginning Sounds is a completely inappropriate name for this software...not once are letter "sounds" pointed out.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Computer Crasher
    If you can get this software to work, the course material is good. Unfortunately, it tends to lock your PC regularly during use - this is, if you have the patience to get the stuff installed in the first place. I had to try installation 3 times before I made it all the way through without locking up my PC.

1-0 out of 5 stars mary of boston
i was very disappointed in this software. although it does help with test taking, it does little in the way of initial presentaion of the material. even the "tutorial mode" is actually more test taking. so, if simply practicing test questions is the goal, this is a great program. but, in terms of allowing a user to learn the material or go beyond the rote delivery of information in school, this software falls far short of of what it promises to do.

5-0 out of 5 stars BioTutor
BioTutor helped me to excel and gave me an advantage over the other students in my class. BioTutor's probing questions and diagrams make a difficult subject easy to understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars BioTutor
"I've been using BioTutor® and it really helps. It's pulled up my grade from a B to an A. The only reason I was getting a B before was because I didn't have very good test scores. However, on my most recent test (on Genetics) I got a 37 out of 35 points (including a 2 point extra credit question) because I had reviewed that chapter in BioTutor®. It's really helpful!"

1-0 out of 5 stars wouldn't work; encore didn't honor money-back guarantee
--> Stay away from all products from this company! <--

- wouldn't install on xp/pro (product box and Amazon state this works on XP, but website indicates product doesn't support this configuration)
- installs on mac os9, but works poorly (unreadable dark blue text on black background, sound is either too loud or too soft, fields not editable that should be, etc.)
- even worse, company (Encore) wouldn't honor 30-day money-back guarantee -- after attempting to return product in original box, etc. to Encore, I received a letter back stating I need to return product to place of original purchase (contrary to product documentation), and they didn't return product back to me to even be able to do this! [attempts to contact via phone didn't work -- on hold for 30+ min's]

1-0 out of 5 stars Very old design style - lame interactivity
This uses Macromedia Director software to accomplish it's animation . .which is all fine and well until you realize they are stuffing you into a tiny box . . .with black backgrounds and white text. Do they know nothing about usability?

I can't get very far into this, but throwing up some text on a small screen and reading it . .. is hardly dynamic.

Might help some . .but with my screen resolution at 1024x768 I'd actually like to use more than 1/4 of my screen to learn.

Lame, lame, lame.

2-0 out of 5 stars Would not install correctly
After installing the sound did not work on the computer (returning to a restore point fixed that). Their online support seems to indicate that this is a common problem. We run Windows XP with multiple users. I assume it couldn't handle that, at any rate I received many errors in path names when I tried to run it, although it did seem to come up. We are relatively computer astute, and maybe could have gone in and fiddled with things to make it work - but I don't want to. Its going back.

Another down-side for me is that it consists of single CD's for each level of math, all of which need to be installed separately. Plus it has to be run from CD, not from the hard disk which is a negative for us since we want to make it as easy as possible for our kids to use!

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what we needed
We are very happy with this. It breaks down the problems for you when you want, gives some incentive for the children to succeed (games), gives detailed lessons, practise exercises and final exams. You can jump forward or rewind.

I wish it had a fast forward option, which would let you hear the lesson quickly, even though it would sound like the chipmunks.

Very good product! Well worth the cost.

5-0 out of 5 stars SUPER FUN AND EASY!!
As hard as this is to admit, but I bought this program for myself! I wanted to refresh my math skills and it certainly did the trick! My oldest son will get a lot of use out of it as well in a couple of years. For a person such as myself who has a hard time understanding concepts of mathematics, I thought that it explained most of them in clear and concise ways. Another great thing is that it comes with a voucher that you can send in with your receipt to receive another free "Encore" game. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolute Junk!
If you are a computer expert, enjoy constant crashes and unavailable servers and your child has patience beyond belief then this is the product for you. This product does not work! We spent a week trying to log on to the server which was down, then when we finally got on and registered the games and activites (which are no very good at all) take about 10 minutes to come up before you can play them. If you are hoping that you will be able to let your child play independently with this product, you better think again. You will be the one trying to navigate the instructions and reading the rules. Your child will be able to click every once in a while when you tell them to click on a certain item, but that is about it. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Smart Choice
So glad to see you finally added this product. I have been hooked on the Kidsedge website for a year now. It is the best all around educational "magazine" I have found. I get great ideas for my third graders -- the ones who need motivation and the GATE kids. We used it today during science and ended up at a virtual museum tour on bugs. I couldn't get the kids to stop for lunch! The articles are interesting, and I am always downloading them for the teacher's room.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money
I wanted a software package for interactive teaching. If I wanted short sentences on how to do math I would have asked my wife. At least she sould have shown me how to get the answer.

Don't waste your money!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars This is an online text book - what is the point???
If I wanted a text book, I would have purchased a text BOOK. I buy software to have the interactivity, not to have to click through and read pages and pages of online text. \

If you really want to try it out, the manufacturer is having a sale in March 2003 - the exact same package for only 10 bucks, but you have to get it through the mathworks web site.

3-0 out of 5 stars Blah
This program has TOO MUCH content for anyone. If you have alot of time to read through all the text, I suppose it is allright. I prefer the fifteen to twenty dollar software over this program. I learned more in a week with the cheaper software than It would have taken me to learn in 3 months with this software. I would recommend it as a reference, but not as a learning tool. I tired pretty easy with all the reading (not to mention bored). Buy something cheaper, and learn alot faster. I think the depth is too much.

Amazon.com Review

A great way to learn the alphabet--from Aunt Annie's alligator to the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz--Dr. Seuss's beloved word play and fanciful illustrations are brought beautifully to life through this software. Each page has multiple hidden places to click, along with pictures, actions, and songs just waiting to surprise you.

For a great activity for more advanced readers, have them pick out just the verbs or nouns on each page. Younger siblings can learn to recognize both capitals and lowercase letters. Sound effects and talking characters add depth and humor to the basic alphabet, and Seuss's version of the "ABC" song will become a permanent sing-along favorite. The CD can even be played on your regular home music system--a great bonus when parents need their computer back!

Required mouse skills can be as simple as clicking one icon to turn the page; kids can also discover clickables no matter what level of coordination they have. --Jill Lightner ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't find one better!
My daughter has loved this book since she was born. I've literally been showing it to her since she was only a couple months old and she still can sit through the whole book (about a half hour or so) every day! I think it's better than the others because (1) it's read in kid's voices, (2) every page looks different unlike many of these software books, and (3) it has lots of nice music and song effects. And I don't feel so guilty for using a computer book since it's somewhat educational. I wish I could find another she likes half as much because I've seen this one a thousand times! (By the way, hitting the space bar while it's in reading mode stops it.)

3-0 out of 5 stars Artistically great but there are some practical problems.
This is a very nice animated adaption of the old Dr. Seuss book which my 3.5 yr-old liked for about 8 minutes and that's where the problem came in. There is no apparent way to stop it! In fact the mouse is disabled until the entire book has read itself. Nothing in the instructions about how to interrupt it either. My son ejected and restarted the CD before I had a chance to stop him, the program re-launched, consumed the rest of my memory and I had to hard boot my PC. Whatever changes the program made to the settings (x2) made my PC fail to boot the first 2 tries. Be careful using this and be prepared to let it play itself out without you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but too much belching
This was the first software that we bought for our sons. They enjoyed it from about 2 1/2 years old. My youngest, at 4 1/2, wouldn't now reach for it, but would do it if it was set up. My only complaint is that the characters can't seem to eat anything without belching.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Software for Toddlers
This was the 1st piece of software we purchased for our daughter and before we knew it she was both singing and reciting her ABC's. It will not only teach your children their ABC's but will also help their hand eye coordination with the mouse. In addition, it will keep your child captivated with all the silly things we love and hold dear from Dr. Seuss.

5-0 out of 5 stars Grows with your child
Our daughter has been enthralled by this CD since she was 14 months old and simply watched as the book was read to her, letter by letter. As she's become familiar and proficient with the mouse, she keeps coming back to discover new characters, words and activities. It's given us all hours of enjoyment. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

For kids who can't get enough of stories, songs, and the alphabet, Clifford Reading is sure to please. Young appetites for learning and funcan be easily satisfied with this simple yet well-designed program that teachesthe fundamentals of reading using a strict phonetic approach.

After a brief introduction to Clifford and his friend Emily Elizabeth, the twoanimated characters give an overview of a handful of letters, along with wordsthat can be made from them. Armed with this knowledge, players may then choosefrom six different games that use these words and letters. In one game, playersbreak balloons with the selected word--pop enough balloons, and Clifford getsdunked in the ocean! In another, players sort parrots into pairs depending onwhat sound they have learned to make.

The games in Clifford Reading are simple, but they succeed in makingentertainment of phonics drills. What's more, success brings definite rewards.Players who correctly identify words and sounds in enough games earn prizes,printed projects like paper airplanes and puppets; these can be colored theold-fashioned way, with crayons and pencils, or decorated on the computer prior tobeing printed out. Even better, each time players conquer a group of words andletters, they receive a book that uses those words--one that they can readwithout any help at all! Like the prize activities, the books can be printed,colored, and kept for posterity as visible signs of reading progress.

Clifford Reading favors substance over flash. The animations are simple,but the program runs smoothly and its content is extensive. With its multiplelevels of difficulty and entertaining games, this is a top choice for childrenwho are hungry to start reading on their own. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
I bought this program for my 4.5 year old son, and we both just love it! This is the first program I've ever seen that had real, tangible rewards that you could print out and actually do something with. So far we've gotten finger puppets, a tick tack toe game and a connect the dots game. And the bonus "books" that are great self-confidence boosters. The program really makes fun work out of phonics. My son has already had some reading background, but this program is more fun for him than anything else we've ever done. His very favorite part is where you have to pop balloons of sight words and eventually Clifford get's dunked in the water. My son laughs and laughs over this and wants to keep doing it over and over. We've had lots of programs since he was two years old, but this one is really something different.

I bought this for my 4 year old girl. She rarely watches Clifford so I took a chance with this one - but SHE LOVES IT! This game is a good solid tool for teaching and reinforcing reading and phonics. She now knows all the sounds each letter makes and can read more and more words. Only drawback, instead of wanting a kitty for a pet, she's now asking for a Big Red Dog - I tell her, "We'll See!" HA! Great game! Get it!

I must say that this is one of the better games we own. It's very engaging, fun, and a good learning tool to boot. I can't say enough about the game and the way it runs. Nearly no tech support would be needed. and, the directions are given pretty clearly throughout the game so the child doesn't feel lost, nor do I as the parent for that matter. It's a fun game and I feel my son gets alot out of it.

My son has had this since he was about 2 1/2. It is by far his favorite and has its pluses and minus'. Positive: Easy to follow directions for young learners. Negative: Some games are a little too advanced, especially compared to the others. "Pop the balloon with the word Cat on it." It's hard enough for a three year old to find the word Cat let alone click on it with a mouse as it flies across the screen. Positive: He likes to "Earn a ticket" so it motivates him to do well. (With enough tickets you get a prize...like a maze or paper airplane you can print out). Negative: He, at three, learned to work the system and likes two of the easier games that earn tickets quickly with less work. Positive: I like the letter recognition of the t-shirt printing game. He has learned a pretty good letter to phonic association. Negative: Not a large enough vocabulary.
Overall, compared to other children's software we have used (Jump Start & Sesame Street) it is the best. My son enjoys it as long as there is someone to help him when he gets frustrated with the mouse or is unable to complete a task. I am actually shopping online for the next version.

3-0 out of 5 stars Characters Don't Look Exactly Like PBS TV Show
Just an FYI...the program is OK but I find that the actual characters do not look exactly like the ones that are on the PBS TV show (except for Clifford himself). Somewhat disappointed. I bought another Clifford program (Clifford Learning Activities) and it contains all the characters that are on the show and they look and sound just like the TV show. My daughter likes Clifford Learning Activities better. ... Read more
