Life Science Student Text (3rd edition) provides a thorough overview of the life sciences but now in two volumes with larger format and single-column text. Activity pages with color illustrations and photographs are included in the back of the student text. Objectives are listed at the beginning of each section, and self quizzes and regular review questions are at the end of each chapter. There is increased emphasis on Bible integration as well as career features, increased compliance with national and state science standards, enhanced appendices on classification and biomes, and an expanded glossary and index.

We find the chapter review questions to be very helpful and thought provoking. There is a good mix of the types of questions asked. The pictures and guide words are well placed and pleasing to the eye. No page is overwhelming. We are using the Distance Learning along with the work text. They complement each other nicely. I have one child doing Apologia General Science and one child doing Life Science with BJU. While I love both programs, I find myself asking my Apologia student to read through the Bob Jones materials because it covers subjects much more in depth. I have and will continue to highly recommended this class to everyone.

We plan to use another science curriculum next year because of the cost of this text. This is primarily because the text is soft cover and contains the students' work pages. Most publishers at this level have a hard text and a seperate workbook, which is much less expensive. We are having to find ways to cut our costs, and this is by far are most expensive curriculum item.

Use this text in a class of 14. The text is understandable by the students and what is not understood I am able to explain.
Labs at times, are difficult as resources are limited. Labs that can make use of more 'household' type items and equipment would be welcome.
