A Must Have...
on 8 January 2011
My daughter started year 7 at High School, last September. Within days she was getting herself into a panic over the Science homework she'd been set. When I tried to help her out, I struggled a bit myself (and this is science for eleven year olds - for goodness sake) - it turns out that the school had issued the girls with the 'CD' version of this book to work from! While a CD does have its uses (and one was included with the book we ordered) - I, personally, don't think you can beat a 'proper' text book for study and it seems my daughter takes after me(?)...
Having this book at home has really helped her. Since it is her own, personal, property - I have told her she is free to make her own notes in margins, highlight important text or underline words,etc. Infact, anything that helps her remember or understand the topic and 'brings it to life'. Because of this, having her own textbook has proved to be better than a school copy could ever have been!
The best of both worlds - and we even have a spare CD to boot:0)
