Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poorly referenced in my view. I didn't want to follow this lesson for lesson, my school curriculum wasn't designed around Scholastic. There is no index and little in the way of contents, so the book is very hard to dip in and out of. Lesson plans are OK but very much designed for the best mathematicians - and I have found that lessons need a lot of re-planning for reality. I wouldn't buy it again.

I think this is a dreadful product It doesn't work with any level of consistency. The Air Play regularly drops out and vanishes completely, the phone and the speaker need to be reconfigured to make it work again, very boring. The only reliable way to use this is with a usb link which entirely defeats the object. Sound is Ok when it does work.

I would never buy another one of these. There are probably some good ideas here but only if your curriculum allows you to teach these books in this way. If you have complete freedom to teach in the way you want to, but want to follow someone else's ideas, this might be for you. If your mid term and long term planning is more prescriptive then this book is a waste of money as the lessons are linked to specific texts. The CD took hours to load and get working, the resources were very basic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 14 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tragic - the one thing I needed from this product was letters that easily pushed out. Had to cut each one individually as made so badly - pointless. Avoid.

This review is from: Indie Cindy (Audio CD)
As a long time Pixies fan of some maturity I was curious as to what new Pixies music might sound like. Unfortunately I made the classic mistake of reading reviews and consequently it took me some time to listen to this properly. I think it's excellent. I enjoy it more than Trampe Le Monde and anyone who thought it would trump earlier releases was in cloud cuckoo land anyway. Albums like Doolittle and Bossanova come along very rarely, for a band to produce two faultless gems puts them up there at the very top of rock n roll.

Apart from here on Amazon I've never read a good review of this cd, but I think it is engaging, electric, edgy, exciting, tuneful, and progressive. All the things I ask of the Pixies. Goes to show what I long suspected, professional music reviewers are more interested in a story and an angle than they are in objective analysis. Most of them are young and can't face up to the facts - their parents and grand parents invented rock, and they've done nothing with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars dont believe the hype, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is not possible to use this mic to get anything like an acceptable recording of an acoustic guitar and vocals are tinny and poppy. It's ok as a toy, it's priced as an expensive toy, it's not a proper mic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Woeful absence of fjords, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All maps look better with fjords, or archipelagos, but this map lacks either of those opting instead for the tried and trusted, but dreary, English coastline. Nice pebbly spits though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oops, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
DelGosso's mandolin method book is excellent, which makes this even more mysterious. Lame versions of House of the Rising Sun and Maghie May. Ouch.
