My children are sad to be done with your Introductory Science course. So am I! It made science so easy this year! I know I’ve sent you an email in the past, but I’ll say it again, we would LOVE to be able to use more courses for elementary levels. Hopefully you’ll be able to find the time to write chemistry, physics, astronomy, geology, etc. courses! The videos were great too! My children have been retaining almost everything, and I think it’s because of the visuals that they were able to see on the videos. And, your price is simply unbeatable! I’ve been trying to tell everyone I know, who homeschools, to use your Introductory Science course. If you ever need a family to pilot a new course for you, please let us know!!!!! Thank you!!!!!
We are loving the Introductory Science course. It is just the perfect amount of time and information for my 7 yr old.
These courses fit a unique niche in the homeschool market since they are designed for independent study, teach at a challenging level, deal with the evolution/creation question in a manner not offensive to creationists, and provide a lab component, all without requiring parental involvement beyond checking answers.

I love this program! It is very well done with short video lectures. :) The kids enjoy the worksheets that reinforce the video lessons. I have my kids who are over 10 years old do the complete workbook lessons. The kids under 10 work on the word searches and participate in our conversations.
Just wanted to drop a quick note and say how much we are enjoying the Life Science curriculum. Hands down, it is the best program out there. Do wish it had a lab book with it, but that’s not a deterrent or negative. We absolutely will use the Biology program and have given the Life Science text rave reviews to anyone who is interested.
Our family found the Life Science set from Science Shepherd to be a good middle school level science course. The organization was well thought out. The book covers material, builds upon it, and then refers to previously learned facts while continuing to provide deeper information. We look forward to using this course with our children for years to come! Read Full Review

What do you do when you’re a homeschooling dad and a medical doctor and you don’t see many good options for parents tackling high school science at home? Why, you write your own, of course! And the result is impressive, especially for a newcomer to the curriculum scene. Author Scott Hardin didn’t just reinvent the wheel here – I think he’s added the equivalent of antigravity boosters with some of the excellent features he’s built in. Read Full Review

I will be recommending the Video Course/ 3 book set to everyone looking for high school Biology curriculum. This is my third year to homeschool and this course is the best homeschool course we have ever used. The recommended schedule is easy to follow, and the videos are of a high quality. The content is challenging and appropriate. I also like the test questions. They require you have a better understanding of the information than the standard multiple choice/matching test. Also, my daughter is going to have more and better labs than I had in school . I am very glad I chose Science Shepherd for Biology. Thanks for creating such a great homeschool curriculum.

The course has the kind of depth that I did not come across when I took high school Advanced Biology! Our children will be very prepared for any college level biology after diligently completing this course! Thank you for all of your efforts in producing the course!

We have made it to chapter 19. No turning back. I discarded 3 other biology courses before hearing about this program on the Homeschooling IRL podcast. I love how cutting edge the information is in this book. I am also amazed how the author can reword a challenging concept 3-4 different ways and it finally makes sense. Reading this right along with my daughter. And, as a former Biology teacher...I find myself amazed. Super pleased!"

It is absolutely no wonder to me that you received this award. I have found your high school biology amazing. It is detailed and yet easy to understand, using proper vocabulary. It is not preachy and goes to the heart of biology. The layout is clear with wonderful diagrams and smooth transitions. The places that instruction repeats are useful tools to pulling together the material. I have found no other biology course that even comes close. We have enjoyed it so very much at my house. Please, please do a Chemistry and Physics class with labs… in that order.

What a terrific course. My son, the avid history buff, greatly enjoyed this Biology program. I enjoyed this course much more than my Biology classes 40 years ago.
Thorough, systematic, understandable, and absolutely usable in the homeschool…I took biology and AP Biology in high school, and I believe Science Shepherd Biology covers more topics in more depth than both of my years of high school biology. Read Full Review

I stumbled upon Science Shepherd Biology. Immediately, I was impressed! I liked that it was written by a physician; that encouraged me! A doctor should know his biology! I liked that the course included human anatomy, something that many books don’t have in the first level. This may be her only biology course she takes, so it needed to have human anatomy. The book is colorful and engaging. There are tons of diagrams, flow charts, and pictures. Everything from cells, genetics, plants, DNA and RNA, the animal kingdoms, human anatomy, ecology, and evolution vs. creationism is included.
This is an extremely well-designed biology course and the lab components are sure to win a lot of accolades as more homeschooling parents experience this course. Read Full Review

It holds my interest, looks appealing, doesn’t overwhelm or intimidate me. Science Shepherd Biology is one biology curriculum I believe my less-interested students could have gotten through fairly painlessly, learning quite a bit along the way!... The lesson format is user-friendly, making it possible for a student to work through the text independently.

Science Shepherd Biology is an excellent course. This curriculum is thorough, systematic, understandable and absolutely usable in the homeschool. I am excited to see what the future holds for this up and coming company. If they produce such beautiful, orderly, complete curriculum right out of the gate, I look forward to seeing what they do in the future. I highly recommend Science Shepherd Biology! Read Full Review
