1-0 out of 5 stars As hard to understand as the math itself
As my title states this program is "as hard to understand as the math itself". Too much reading is involved. If I wanted to read and not understand I would read the book again. Needs more graphics and animations. Not a very good math supplement.

1-0 out of 5 stars This software STINKS!
Good luck to anyone trying to figure out how to use this software. I guarantee that none of your kids can figure it out on their own. The feature set is rich but even someone that is very technical will have difficulty figuring out how to use it. I read the manual thoroughly and the descriptions of how to do a lot of things is simply missing. I couldn't even get through the first lesson!

2-0 out of 5 stars Where's the Beef?
Too much fluff and not enough meat for my needs. Too much reading and not enough interactive sitations dealing with the concepts. Not enough examples and step by step directions to solving problems would have helped. It seems like they put all of their resources into the introduction clip and blew off the math! Not impressed! You'd be better off just DOING YOUR HOMEWORK! Not good for supplimental instruction. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not ready for prime time
...

This program has many errors in the practice exercises and a few in the examples worked through in the instructional portions of the program.For instance, X^2 + 8X + 16 = (X+8)^2.The program is riddled with such errors which should have been caught by any high school graduate if it was proof-read.Because I am using this program for review, I am able to get through the mistakes but I'm afraid it would confuse someone new to algebra immensely.

Because of poor program design, you can't prove the test errors out - it never tells you which test problems you missed so you can't review areas where you may be weak. The interface is not a Windows interface. It only operates full screen so you can't work casually, while doing anything else.

Overall, for my purposes, the program is marginally acceptable but I wish I had spent my money on a different math program. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars What a huge disappointment ...
Did the people writing the rave reviews on Middle School Advantage really get the same product we received? The five CD's included in the 2003 edition are just a packaging of software titles produced by independent agents, with little attention given to consistency, quality, branding, graphics, etc. across the 10 subjects.

The math sections -- what we originally bought it for -- are nothing more than text book pages reproduced online. There is nothing engaging, exciting in the material -- nothing to motivate a willing student to learn or discover more. The "interactive" option is laughable -- a voice reads what appears on screen.

Don't waste your time or money on this Middle School series...

4-0 out of 5 stars This has great advatages!!!!!
If you want to improve something or study for a test you need this product! It is great!! It'll help middle schooler's grades improve and it is kinda fun! You really need to try this product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Virtual Teacher of the Year
Middle School Advantage definitely deserves the Virtual Teacher of the Year Award... if there is one. This program actually explains your school subjects better than a real teacher! In the math section, you can read pages that explain the concepts, look at explanitory examples, and take tests. It is extremely easy to learn Spanish, too. The computer even pronounces the words better than your school Spanish teacher. Middle School Advantage tests you in every subject to make sure you fully understand all the concepts. I never really liked to study, but Middle School Advantage makes me eager to learn. Every night I sit at my computer and learn a new concept. Middle School Advantage 2003 is the best learning software yet! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice graphics but too much sparkle and sound effects
Overall this is an ok cdrom. The activities in general suit the age group recommended for it. However there are a few things that detract from this software's effectiveness as a fun learning tool.

The opening movie-like sequence is just a flashy distraction that could have been better designed, replaced or excluded. My niece usually bypasses it with a click and goes straight to the menus.

The menu is interesting enough but some of the menu paths lead to the same place and I wonder what is the point of this.

My biggest gripe is some of the sound effects that tend to drown out the instructions (a major disadvantage) and as far as I can tell, you have to click them off everytime you restart the program .

Also, what is the point of being able to add users if you can't delete some of them? My niece likes to type a lot of letters without care to what she's typing so we have a long list of users who are either ABCDEFG, or AAABCDEDFGHIJK etc and there is no way to get rid of these that is obvious to me.

The activities are easy enough to complete once you figure out what to do but it would have been more appropriate to be able to customize the experience i.e. have several levels for each activity so that the parent/adult can select the most appropriate level with less or more requirements for completion to get the brillite stones as a reward. My niece has managed to get a few of these in some activities but in others, she has yet to achieve the number of repetitions required to collect one because she usually gets bored and switches to another activity before she completes the required number.

The colouring activity is creative and unique but some of the smaller shapes are difficult for preschoolers to target with the mouse without a severe amount of concentration and focus and so trying to colour these shapes is an odious task when it should be fun.

Also, the counting activity with the rockets, (while very unique and creative), is a definite candidate for multiple levels of difficulty since at age 3, most pre-schoolers have not grasped subtraction yet and this activity requires that they be able to understand this concept to complete some of the mission tasks.

In addition, the counting activity and some other activities need a more obvious and more visual completion/reward message for each time the task is completed. This is the one area where the graphics are lacking.

4-0 out of 5 stars some things done right, others not so good
We are a loyal Reader Rabbit family, having tried many children's software titles and consistently finding the RR series at least as good as any similar software and usually much better, but I would say this particular title is a mixed bag. On the positive side, the graphics are good, the characters are familiar and there is an overarching purpose (collecting brillites to plug into Mount Brill) that lends depth to a typically shallow gaming genre. On the not-so-positive side, the games are often exceptionally tedious and it is not always clear what one is expected to do. I really appreciate that there's a framework story and a big finish with a "Congratulations" to help your child get excited about the accomplishment but, as another reviewer has mentioned, the child can easily get the brillites needed to finish the game while they still have another (and incomplete) set of stones -- what are those for?

There are six activities that rely on matching, counting and letter recognition skills as well as listening to instructions, but there is little devotion to teaching these skills -- it's basically just testing them. I'd say this is one of the weaker members of a strong software series .... perhaps not the first program that you might want to buy for your preschooler, but entertaining and with some positive attributes if you're shopping for a third or fourth.

2-0 out of 5 stars a big disappointment
My son really enjoyed Reader Rabbit Toddler, so I thought this would be a good next step. Sadly, while this game has all the bells and whistles, looks wonderful, etc., it is not very playable. If a child has trouble completing the tasks, they will soon get bored.

Many of the games actually require the knowledge they are purporting to teach. For instance, one of the games which is supposed to teach letter recognition is not actually playable if the child doesn't already recognise the letters.

When you complete a section there is a long movie which plays, with a really cheesy broadway musical type of song. Once my son (a 3-year old) figured out how to play this movie, he would spend all his time playing it over and over again , learning nothing (and driving me crazy in the process).

My son soon got bored, and I got him Dr. Seuss Preschool instead, Reader Rabbit ended up in the trash can, and family harmony once again prevails.

I gave it two stars instead of one because my son did have fun with it for about 2-3 weeks.

2-0 out of 5 stars Big Step Down From Reader Rabbit Baby & Toddler
This program has a lot of narrative preamble prior to the introduction of each simple (and very repetitive) game. If the object here is to teach children patience and listening skills, then maybe it's on target. However, in my opinion any child who is developed enough to have that kind of patience and listening skill is going to find the games completely unchallenging. So far I have been unsuccessful getting my boy to show the slightest interest in this CD.

1-0 out of 5 stars Beware Windows ME users!!!
I purchased this game at Toys"R"Us and I installed it on my PC, it ran fine but when I went on-line the first time after the installation I could not get to any secure sites. I found out later that the program had crashed my browser, so I am posting this warning to any Windows ME users just to be aware of this problem. ... Read more

This program help me do good in school and keep track of my classes and homework.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great tool for school
I brought this item a copule of months ago and I cannot seem to live without it. One of the special features that I truly love is the "what if" scenarios in which that figures your grade when you tally all of the homework, quizzes, exams, etc.

It does take work on the users part getting all of the info on the system; but I figure you only have to do that just once a semester and mostly every day in regards to assignments and reminders for exams and essays. It is well worh the price for such a useful tool.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money like I did.
This package is really disappointing. The math programs are dismal. You click on buttons just to view a page from a math book. The Internet has interactive math websites that are far better. Unfortunately, I had to find that out after I spent my money. The earth and life sciences CD's are not too bad, but again the Internet has much to offer on these subjects for free. The history CD is a joke. The caveat here is to avoid buying these package deals and look for individual products.
