    My daughter liked it. Apologia’s content was too difficult for her, so she wasn’t retaining it well.

    There is still a lot of writing though, daily worksheets, quizzes and tests.

    You could tweak either one to meet your needs.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>My daughter used it last year, and liked it.  Like I said, there are still daily readings and worksheets. We didn’t use their labs. She read through the Friendly Biology labs, but did ACE labs instead with a lab report book, because I already had that, so it was easier for us.</p>

    My son was very fortunate and took Friendly Biology online with Dr Hajda the author.  He also took Friendly Chemistry online through Classes by Beth.  He enjoyed both books and experiments.  It seemed to me that a lot of the experiments centered around food and his friend that was using Apologia Biology skipped his experiments to come do the Friendly Biology experiments with my son.  My son is an avid reader and science geek so the reading seemed manageable.  I think also they were a breath of fresh air after several years of Apologia.
