Program Strengths

Some of the strengths of this computer program include: an automatic update feature, on-screen student resource aids, practice games, and easy lesson planning and recordkeeping for student and parent-teacher. Students who enjoy the computer will feel "right at home" with this self-paced, instructional method.

Weaknesses of Program

Some less favorable aspects of this program include potential compatibility or installation errors, required computer for student lessons, and very limited review of previous topics covered. Although some of the student coursework can be printed or read aloud, students who dislike reading on the computer may not find this to be a good mode of learning.

Alpha Omega's computer curriculum is a complete homeschool curriculum that can be easily adapted to many different learning styles. The entertaining games and interactive format make it enjoyable for most students. Parents also enjoy the fact that once installed, the program is pretty easy to manage and record keeping can be easily done.
