Excellent chemistry program for homeschoolers

Dr. Shoremann is very thorough. As the study progresses, previous concepts are reviewed to keep fresh what you've learned and to give you more practice. This also helps by laying a foundation to build upon for the next concept. We found for ourselves, the practice took longer than was suggested, but all in all that is not really a problem unless one is pressed for time, which we are not. My daughter feels that this program is well preparing her for college and I agree.
Thorough and well done!

My son has really connected with the lectures. He is preparing for the AP Chemistry exam so the thoroughness of the curriculum is a great help.

This product meets all our needs. Challenging enough to prep our student for CLEP exam. I am a science nerd and I just love DIVE products. I really appreciate the fact Dr Shorman stays true to creation based design. Hats off to all who worked to create such a wonderful product!!
