Good textbook suggestions for 8th-9th grade kids starting to take Biology and Chemistry classes: Biology DeMistified and Chemistry DeMistified are perfect for upper middle school/early high school students looking for something that teaches the subject well and comes with chapter-ending 10-question quizzes, Part tests, and a final exam at the end. Complete with back-of-the-book answers so homeschooling parents require no research or online searching to grade their children's work. You can find these books on Amazon or eBay for a fair price, and I recommend them for students who have already completed a Life Science class and a Physical Science class for best results.

Where do you order these texts? Is there a web site?

As she said, eBay and Amazon. You can probably also get them from other sources, but I personally prefer to buy used textbooks whenever possible so I don't have to pay full price.

Thanks. Sorry, not used to using EBay. I tried the search engine on Amazon to look for the Biology text and it did not match any of their products.

That's probably because the titles are misspelled.

Biology Demystified and Chemistry Demystified is how they should be spelled. You should be able to find them at any major book store such as Bookamillion or Barnes and Noble as well as Amazon.

Thanks, I just copied into the search engine what the earlier message said and it was indeed misspelled. Thanks for the correction and I found the book on Amazon and directly at the McGraw-Hill Professional site as well, http://www.mhprofessional.com/category/?cat=1 Thanks again and God Bless.

I'm glad I could help.

*smile*

Please, let us know what you think of the books overall. I saw some mixed reviews. I'm curious.
