Amazon.com Review

Visit het achterhuis on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam andexplore the annex where Anne Frank wrote her renowned diary. With morethan 1,000 historical photos, over 15 video films, and four hours ofspoken text, Anne Frank House presents a complete picture of all thedetails Anne sought to capture in her diary. The software even includesa copy of Anne's diary, complete with 30 percent more material than theoriginal published version.

Install the application and within minutes you'll have access to notonly the program, but the Anne Frank Web site as well. The software isset up to resemble the actual house where Anne and her family hidduring World War II. Using the mouse, we were able to navigate our waythrough different rooms throughout the building, as well as otherbuildings in the surrounding area. The program does an amazing job ofcapturing the neighborhood in which the family hid for all those years,as well as the actual rooms and corridors of their secret annex.

Aside from a virtual tour of the house, complete with posters on thewall and food on the table, the program comes complete with dozens ofshort stories and explanations about the lives of all the occupants of123 Prinsengracht. Click on the revolving cube that sits in thelower left-hand corner of your screen and choose from a number ofoptions, including Timelines, People, Hidden Places, and more. Weespecially appreciated the outline of a typical day in the annex, whereclicking on a particular time would launch a detailed explanation ofwhat went on in the house at that particular hour.

While the program may seem a bit overwhelming at times, mainly becauseof the large scope of information offered, it just takes a little timeand practice to adjust to the application. In addition, a helpfullost-and-found navigation feature makes it easy to move around the softwarewithout losing your bearings. However, we found that sometimes thebest way to experience this type of program is simply to point andclick and see where it takes you. And if you do get stumped on a termor expression, the comprehensive glossary and help section is usuallyaccessible from wherever you may be in the application.

Designed for both students and teachers, Anne Frank House takes acomprehensive yet sensitive look at the complete story of Anne Frank,the families in hiding, and the vast, sometimes incomprehensible warthat unfolded before their very eyes. --Gisele Toueg ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT SOFTWARE!!!
This is an excellent program! I recieved it as an early birthday present. Since I learned about Anne Frank and the holocaust, I have always wanted to visit the secret annex where the Franks, Van Pels, and Mr. Pfefer hid for two years before they were captured and sent to various concentration camps by the Nazis. This program is the next best thing to actually visting the Anne Frank house. (Het Achterhuis as the Dutch call it.) It makes it seem like you are actually there. You can tour Prisengracht, the street where the annex is located, Anne's father's office building and the secret annex itself. You can learn about the people in hiding, the helpers, and possible suspects of people who betrayed them. There is a glossary of many terms used in the holocaust. (i.e. aryan, concentration camp, Nazis) There are MANY different videos and excerpts from the diary and the software even comes with a better revised version of it for FREE. I would definetly reccomend this to anyone who is interested in learning more about the Holocaust, or Anne Frank.

5-0 out of 5 stars Anne Frank House
This cd is a very helpful resource for students and teachers(social studies/English) It helped me..Pictures are amazing and so coool.

5-0 out of 5 stars The ULTIMATE Anne Frank Resource!
This is an excellent program! I can not sing it's praises enough. I've wanted to get a copy of it for a while, but the price threw me. However, I finally broke down and got it. I've studied Anne Frank and her diary for years and always wanted to visit the annex where she hid. Unfortunately, that will likely never happen, but this CD-ROM is the next best thing, because it makes it seem like you are actually there. Starting out front, you can tour the entire Prisengracht office building as it appeared in Anne's time. You can also learn about the people in hiding, the helpers, and possible suspects of people who betrayed them. There is a glossary of many terms used in the holocaust. (i.e. aryan, concentration camp, Nazis, etc.) There are MANY different videos and excerpts from the diary. You get to see Miep's real ID from those days, the real checkerboard diary, the pictures on the wall of Anne's room, examples of thins that they read during the day when they had go keep quiet, and many other historical artifacts. The software even comes with a free copy of the Diffinitive Edition of the diary whick contains a third more text than the first one published back in 1952. I would definetly recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning more about the Holocaust, and Anne Frank. My only gripe? Where is this "only home video footage of the real Anne Frank" that they promise? I have yet to find it. I would think that this would be on the main menue or linked to from her bio. Anyway, all and all it's an essential companion to The Diary of Anne Frank.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply fantastic!
Watching the snippet--all too short--of a young Anne Frank peering from a window literally took my breath! What a literary and historic treasure this CD brings to its users! The tour of the house is easily accomplished, the historic photos, timelines and footnotes are informative and simple to access.

If you have any interest in WWII or Anne Frank herself, this is an invaluable resource, easily worth its purchase price! Don't hesitate--get it now!

5-0 out of 5 stars Really fun for kids and adults
We spent 2 months living in Holland last year and our favorite place to visit was the Anne Frank House. The story of Anne's family in hiding is one that frightens and intrigues everyone who reads it. Visiting the actual house makes it all seem so very real and close to home. The next best thing to actually going there is to tour the house with this great new software. We bought this so that our kids could relive the experience back at home but I could also see it used as a wonderful teaching tool in the classroom. We all love playing with it. The software can't replace the diary itself for story, but it does add another dimension that is fun and educational. If you love the story, don't miss it! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The extraordinary thing about The Great Operas is the amount ofmaterial the producers have managed to cram onto one CD-ROM. Thefigures on the box are impressive enough, but once inside you have tosuspend disbelief and prepare for a long wallow in an operatic goldmine.

The work is in six sections: operas, composers, great interpreters, theworld's top 25 opera houses, history, and a glossary. Of course it isnot comprehensive--some of the information is a little outdated, andthe sound quality is not wonderful--but this is a tremendousintroduction to the world of opera. One impressive feature is thatunlike many works aimed at a wide audience, The Great Operas does notshirk the 20th century, offering extracts of 20 of the century's greatoperas.

Artist biographies have audio excerpts, complete with the score, and asa bonus there are five marvelous video clips, including Callas,Sutherland, and Pavarotti--all in black and white, but well worthincluding. The history section has direct links to audio examples, andeven a few seconds of listening provide a flavor of the work that noprinted volume could ever hope to achieve. --Keith Clarke ... Read more

I think this is the best cd rom for opera lovers and those who are learning about opera. You enjoy the images as well as the audio and it is fun to browse around any opera , libretto or composer review.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Opera Mother's Dream
My mother, who grew up with opera, absolutely loves this product. She says that not only does it bring back old memories, but it shows all the important things about the different operas. According to her, this opera miracle doesn't leave anything out, and even I was amazed at some of the opera parts I heard. Thanks to this product, my entire family is now officially opera fans! Thank you Montparnasse Multimedia! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Combining the talents of 11 of the world's top psychologistsand neurobiologists, Secrets of the Mind is an authoritative and subtlyinteractive CD-ROM that aims to give the lowdown on perhaps thegreatest of scientific mysteries: our very own brains.

Unlike the challenging subject matter, the format is simple and neat.Click on any of umpteen pictures on the central "mind map," with suchtitles as "Emotional Intelligence," "Consciousness & Perception," or"The Learning Brain," and one of those 11 experts will then appearmidscreen to give an illuminating lecture on his favored field ofneuroscience. And when the talking gets a bit wearisome, as itsometimes does, you can then shut the teacher up with pleasing ease andaccess one of the funky interactive psychiatric games, check out one ofthe diverting audio-visual displays on particular cerebral functions,or even listen in as other boffins (or scientists) have a heatedon-disk debate on, say, dreaming or memory.

If there is a fault with this setup, it's that the teaching can be alittle dry, even overearnest. But given that most of the educationalCD-ROMs out there err on the side of childishness and garishness,that's almost a welcome flaw. A good buy for serious students.--Sean Thomas ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Marvellous resources for the serious students
The editorial and author's reviews already give you a good idea of the content. I just wish to express my appreciation for the opportunity to have exposure to 11 of the top-notch scientists of the brain and cognition, including one in French, through such an informative tool. First click through all the titles of the 20 icons on the "map of knowledge" and listen to the charming voice explaining what is contained there. You can systematically select what you are interested in. You can also use the index to search for a topic. Much effort has been put into creating so many video clips for the texts of the interviews. There are many graphic illustrations. I like the "round-table" of scientists's views on diverse theme topics, such as "Can there be free will?". If passive listening gets boring, you can switch to reading the texts instead. There are just too many interesting topics. Having to use 2 CDs is a bit inconvenient. I hope there will be a single DVD, updated and expanded version with more links to current resources in a couple of years to catch up with the explosion of brain knowledge.

5-0 out of 5 stars A word from one of the Author of this cd
Hello

My name is Bruno Levy and I co-authored this cd-rom with life long friend Emile Servan-Schreiber.(I apologize for self rating this cd with 5 stars but it looks like the amazon software force me to give a rating.)

Our idea in designing and producing this cd-rom was to give an introductory (and interactive) overview about what is currently known on the brain and the mind. One of the big revolution of the 90s is that the knowledge of how the mind works(the goal of cognitive psychology) starts to be in close correspondance with the knowledge of how the brain work s(the goal of neuroscience).

That's why we interviewed some of the best specialists in both domain and asked them to explain in the simplest language what they have discovered and understood about the brain and the mind in their research.

In addition, we have included a serie of first person interactive experiments. All these experiments have been designed and discovered by cognitive psychologists in the last 25 years. A lot of them are extremely entertaining but not very well known by the general public. When we designed our cd-rom, we thought it would be interesting to have people discover **on themselves** the mechanism of their own mind at work. Its a great way to understand that cognitive psychology is really a science able to made predictions (A word of caution: these experiments are NOT IQ test.)

Our cd-rom was published two years ago in France and Italy and has been a great success: we sold 25000 units in France and 25000 more in Italy. We received several prestigious award in France for both its content and interactivity.

I honestly believe that the cd-rom is still actual in terms of content. I also want to say that all the cd is illustrated by French Artist Philippe Andrieu who has really provided a welcomed and appropriate poetic touch to this whole subject.

Here is a list of the people whose interviews are reproduced in the cd-rom:

- Herbert Simon (Nobel prize of economics and one of the founder of AI & cognitive psychology). - Eric Kandel (He just received the Nobel Prize in medecine this year).In the cd he explained a part of the work he has received his Nobel for. - Daniel Schacter from Harvard. He will speak about how memory are formed. - Stephen Kosslyn from Harvard, he will speak about vision and imagination. - John Anderson from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), he will speak about the rule of thoughts. - Rodney Brooks from MIT, he will describe his attenpt to build a humanoïd robot (COG). - James McClelland from CMU, he will explain how neurones work and communicate together to produce mental thoughts (neural nets). _ Michale Posner form Oregon U, he will describe the mechanisms of attention. - Jean Pierre Changeux from Pasteur Institut, he will describe how the brain grows. - David Servan Schreiber from U of Pittsburgh, he will speak about the emotional brain - Rodolfo Llinas from NYU who will introduce us to some of the brain mechanisms underlying consciousness.

I hope this description helps.

Retrace the history of Paris, from its prehistoric origins to our times. Rediscover the Gallo-Roman city, Paris in the Middle Ages, or Paris during the Renaissance.

Meet the personalities who have left their mark on Paris's history and its cultural heritage: the artists, architects, and politicians. In short, discover the spirit of Paris and those who have shaped it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Paris: Promenades & History
What I like about this cd is that you can focus Paris in different way. The intellectual, bohemic, the academic, the leisure one. It can fix your type. It does not matter if you have never been to Paris, or if you has lived there you can learn something new and amazing as the underground Paris,like the cafés that are famous in a lot of motion pictures, the art deco architecture, etc. It is very interactive and I can spend hours in it. I like a lot the Montparnasse House in how they presents viewing and art subjects. Paris is a museum by itself so enjoy it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Kaplan U.S. History & Government Essential Review presents core information on the subject with an appealing, easy-to-use interface. It spans more than 500 years of major historic events, ranging from the signing of the Declaration of Independence to President Clinton's impeachment and acquittal. The program incorporates complete tables of the U.S. presidents and constitutional amendments, as well as a timeline of historical events from the country's founding to the start of the 21st century. The practice tests help students track progress and identify areas for further study, while the brainstorming, outlining, glossary, and bibliography programs will improve homework assignments and papers. Students will also benefit from tutorials and quizzes for each chapter, test-taking tips and strategies, context-sensitive help, and word-search and crossword puzzles that reinforce content.

Students can begin the program however they like. Some prefer to read the table of contents, choose a chapter, and begin their learning through reading and practice tests. Others may choose to explore various portions of the program, such as the tutorials, Tips and Strategies section, or the glossary. Students can also begin by taking a 25-question diagnostic test to determine mastery level. Upon completion of the test, Kaplan Essential Review provides a report of correct and incorrect answers. For each incorrect response, the program offers the correct answer and explains why it is correct.

From that point, students decide how they would like to direct their learning: They can explore a subject in which they need improvement, study the tutorials provided, work on crossword puzzles covering the content, read through the glossary, or take practice tests. They can then retake the diagnostic test to compare results. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It does what it says: aptly named, "essential review"
I bought this to help me prepare for quizzes in US history class. It does the job! There's not a lot of fluff, not a lot of cool features (I like the music though!). It's just a really great review tool. The idea generator thing is really neat.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good info, but a little frustrating.
I bought this not as a student, but someone trying to learn more about our history. It is full of good information but it's all in an outline format and fails to elaborate on any details. Also, during the descriptions, it has words and phrases highlighted that you can click on for more information; again, these details are usually one or two sentences that fail to elaborate. This program gives you the main ideas, but I'm one of those people that likes to know more than just "when," I want to know how, why and by who - basically, well researched with plenty of food for the brain to inspire intregue into another possible tangent. With this program, you will constantly be accessing other sources because of the limits. If you are considering this for assisstance in school work, don't bother since the information on this program is included in your textbook. ... Read more
