    I absolutely love the Life of Fred books for any subject. Not only does the author keep the kids engaged - they WANT to learn more. I am pleased with the pacing and also the added facts and fun that are included. I have bought nearly all the LOF books and will continue as my kids age up and need them.

    Since we just got the book I can't give an opinion yet but I have flipped through. So far all of the books have worked well for my son and he enjoys them. I'm so confident in them I buy ahead even before we are ready for them,

    The best way to learn Chemistry!
    Mar 18, 2016

    Even though I loved Chemistry in school, I really wish it was taught the way that Dr. Schmidt teaches it! He uses real life type situations to teach about chemistry. I love how he tells us what we need to really know about chemistry and not just useless facts to memorize. The fact that the book is written by a math teaches helps a lot too, because the formulas and math in this chemistry book seem easier to learn and comprehend! This one is going in our permanent library.
