This was one of the easiest courses for me to teach. But don't let the word "easy" fool you, my daughter learned a lot! She enjoyed it so much, that I did not have to remind her to do the work, and the book is written very well with homeschoolers in mind. The labs/experiments were fun, educating, and easy. My daughter will be taking the Zoology 2 course this year, and can't wait to do Zoology 3.
My older child has used the Biology book, and will be using the Chemistry book next.
I wish I had discovered the Apologia Science books sooner!
