Reviews - What do customers think about Spectrum Science Test Practice, Grade 8?
Unexpected weaknesses Apr 27, 2010
The book has good information in it, and can be helpful, as far as it goes. These kinds of study guides WILL teach you how to take such tests, and the student will gain some knowledge, but they will not ensure that you have really learned and internalized the given subjct.
But, in regards to the quality of the material they publish, in at least two instances in this book (such as pages 49 and 53) the "word bank" problems ask you to fill in the blanks from a list provided - pretty standard fare. But in both cases mentioned, there is one answer that even the best student MUST get wrong because the correct word/answer is NOT in the list provided! Having used other Spectrum books, this is a surprise, as THEY did not have such errors.
The BEST Oct 20, 2007
Spectrum Books were recommended by my child's teacher. Now I can understand why. We home school and these books are great. They self teach and are easy to understand. They are economically priced which is rare in educational books. I find that every Spectrum Book on every subject is equally as great. Not only are they valuable to home schooled kids like mine, they also are great to tutor kids in traditional schools who may need a little help. I will never hesitate to buy any book under the Spectrum name brand. They are tops. However it's my nature to be picky, so here it goes, the only thing I recommend is removing the answers from the back of the book. All the pages have been conveniently perforated. Because if you have a child like mine, he'll discover this before you do and whiz through his assignments without getting any question wrong. I'll be buying these books for years to come. I love them and it will be hard to find anything better.
