5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased!
Our 6 yr. old daughter loves this software. I have started limiting her computer time now, because if I didn't she would play this game for hours. It works well, user friendly and the format is great. Love the colors and animation.
1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless
I have a new HP computer.Loaded the game and it says the necessary sound card/program is not on the computer - but it is!Needless to say, the program will not run.

If you're looking for a writing package that provides guidance but isn't overbearing, the Writer's DreamKit package from Dramatica is a great solution. This package is targeted at beginning to intermediate writers, and attempts to get you involved in working out the mechanics of your story before you even begin writing it.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good
It is a very fun and interesting program. It helps you with all the basic mechanics in developing a story. It is wisely advised that beginners use this product as well as anyone who needs to learn the fundamental elements of developing a story.

3-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Product: -Buy the Pro. Version or . . .
"Writer's Dreamkit 4" is lacking in features needed by serious writers - or those hoping to become serious writers.

And, fortunately, all fourprograms--originally released separately by the quality-conscious folks at Edmark--manageto do a respectable job of actually teaching kids, too.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid This Product
I have purchased 30-40 software CD's for my 6 year old over the years and this CD has got to rate near the bottom of the bunch.In summary, there is very little explanation or instruction into the math or science concepts being "taught", the "game" aspect to theCDs is clunky at best, and it is just plain confusing.I have been sorely disappointed in these CDs and my daughter has very little, if any, interest in using these CDs although she loves to be on the computer.At the same time I boughtthese CDs, I also bought her a Magic School Bus title which was very good and which she asks to play.I have never written a review before this review but felt compelled to do it to alert other parents to avoid this title. Waste of your money, and of your child's patience and interest.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceeds Expectations
My son is 6 yrs old so I was leery of purchasing this title.However, it is better to challenge than to bore, so I made the purchase.I will never regret it.The software is fabulous.It installed easily, initializes and performs well, is incredibly engaging and remarkably educational for such a fun suite of software.5-0 out of 5 stars Great selection of titles, educational and well worth the $$
This is a great set of CD's.Informative, fun, challenging and well worth the money.A deal like this is hard to find, and belive me I've been looking! My 10 yr old son very much enjoys this product as well as the Middle School Accelerator. ... Read more

Journey to the other side of reality, to a virtual city shrouded in secrecy. Welcome to Chemicus, a land where scientific knowledge from the beginning of time is protected and wields sacred powers. You play as an accidental intruder transported to Chemicus by an ancient amulet. Your unintended presence has threatened the tranquility of this virtual city, and it's up to you--if you dare--to restore harmony before it's too late.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Chemicus
While the game is not one of my favorites it is not bad. You definitely need a guide to play this. (In today's games, who wouldn't?) There is a lot of inventory and it is sometimes cumbersome to perform a task. I would recommend this to anyone who likes science or just for relaxation.
4-0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than Physicus, But...
My wife and I are avid adventure gamers and, to help pass the time until "URU: Ages Beyond Myst" is released later this year, we decided to try "Chemicus". We played "Physicus" a couple years ago and, while we enjoyed it, we both thought that it could have been a much better game if it had tied into Physics a little deeper and if more effort was put into the adventure game design (look for my earlier review).3-0 out of 5 stars Education and confusion come together in Chemicus
Okay, okay, I had fun.But I was also incredibly frustrated by the set up and "logic" (or I should say lack of logic) of this game and that truly detracted from my enjoyment. I wanted to learn something from this game, but I didn't get the connections half the time!Read more

(NOTE: Teacher's Toolbox 4.0 is for high school teachers.) The latest version of this comprehensive classroom-administration system provides a lesson planner and report-card generator, in addition to grading, scheduling, seating-chart design, attendance monitoring, test creation, and student reporting. With version 4.0, teachers can import and export files between Toolbox and Microsoft Word and Excel. Teachers also can click directly from Toolbox to rSchool.com, which is the newest portal on the Internet for the entire educational community. rSchool.com provides a huge array of educational resources, online shopping and fundraising, and a communications platform on which teachers can post classroom information for their students and parents. The best part is that teachers can transfer grading, attendance, reports, and other files that they have created in Toolbox directly to rSchool.com with just a few clicks of the mouse--all of this functionality in a package that's easy to learn and use. ...

For me, this was a comprehensive and easy to use program. In my former school system, we had to use paper gradebooks. Fortunately, the school where i was stationed allowed teachers to use software packages like this one to input and print grade reports.1-0 out of 5 stars Teacher's Toolbox 4.0
Do not waste your money. The program is not user friendly and does not offer anything I can't find on any other program.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!
This product works just fine. I don't know what more you want. I've found nothing out there that works as good as this program. Quit writing bad reviews:)

1-0 out of 5 stars do anything you can to avoid using route 66
if you have used microsoft's "street and trips" before you wont like "route66". its slow (even on a powerbook g4 1.67) and not as friendly as "s & t". The "s & t" works faster than "route 66" on virtual pc7 with xp (this part i dont like much) on the same powerbook. If you have not used "s & t" before ,try another option on osx or try what i did (it worked better for me).

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money-this is a piece of junk
First and foremost this program does not allow you to access Exit numbers. You can look on the map till your eyes hurt, but you'll never be able to tell the Driver, "in five miles take exit 26". No exit numbers, I contacted the company and they confirmed that they are working on this for future versions. That such a simple navigational tool is not available is enough to render this program useless in my opinion, but that doesn't even scratch the surface.

5-0 out of 5 stars A choice gift for art lovers
Victory or Montparnasse Multimedia keeps producing high-quality CDs.With the rapid progress in technology, the art CDs get better and better.The Hermitage Museum (1998) is somewhat similar in format and structure with Musee d'Orsay (1996) and is even more flexible in giving you a vivid virtual experience and appreciation of the Museum.Theanimated features, the music and the historical background are all excellent and give you a more in-depth understanding. It is interesting to listen to the history and vicissitudes of the Museum since 1682, with fires and three evacuations, including the one in 1941 before the 900 days' siege by the Nazis. You can even send a certain number of art pictures as postcards, e.g. Madonna Litta, by da Vinci, through the internet.I highly recommend this CD of one of the greatest museums to art lovers and any visitor of St. Petersburg and the Hermitage.

5-0 out of 5 stars i've had it for a year and still feels brand new
i never get sick of just strolling around in my hermitage's hallways and looking at any painting i choose in detail along with getting all the info i need just by clicking on any painting hangging on the wall. i love its beatifal selection of composers thats perfect for this virtual environment. i still to this day find beautiful paintings that ive missed which makes every visit to the hermitage a interesting one. myself being an artist i definately think this is a very helpful tool in giving you the freedom to sit and take in everything a real museum could give you without the guards and crowds of tourists.

1-0 out of 5 stars This isA GAME!
This is a game . Its educational value does not live up to what is promised on its cover, very misleading. What primary resource material was it talking about? It was a game and if thats what you want to get your kid get civillization III, not only does it have more educational content , it also is more realistic and helps them learn the complexity and hardship alongside history and structure. In other words this was a waste of money !

4-0 out of 5 stars Sound great for reports
This looks great as I plan on teaching 1750 - 1900 this year to my homeschooled children.I especially like the idea of maps, that is if I can print them off.It is good to have maps pertaining to that era specifically.The only reservation I have would be the systems requirements, as I have XP but I can use it on our Windows 98 I am sure.Read more
