Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If your child can play a Gameboy or play games on the computer, they'll certainly breeze through this Hooked on Phonics: Master Reader program. I completed the original Hooked on Phonics levels 1-5 and needed more advanced reading training for my [...] son who struggles with large words, compound words, and most importantly, confidence within himself. This program is the answer for us! Although first looking at this program, I hesitated purchasing it because of the price, after trying other methods, I broke down and bought this program. Yes, it's an investment, but it's an investment with HUGE REWARDS, you won't mind the cost when you see your child making such quick headway with this product. Within 1 minute of opening the box, I slipped the CD in as instructed, clicked a few yeses and nexts to install, my son then sat down at the computer and completed level one. I was thrilled that there was plenty of overlap from the beginner program of basic reading as not to scare him off right off the bat. The graphics were bright, interesting to him, and completely user friendly to him. Looking at him, you'd have thought he was playing a cool video game! I sat next to him ready to help him, but the instructions were very clear and understandable for him, he didn't need me to help out. This is a completely independent program for your child to operate! This is what I notice most about this CD-ROM version is the freedom it allows the parents of struggling readers.

What you can expect starting the program:
STEP 1: child clicks on the star icon on their computer to begin program.
STEP 2: child signs in or selects his/her own name.
STEP 3: child clicks on the game board looking numbered level he/she is on, beginning with 1.

WARNING!!!!
If you only have Mac computers in your home and you do not have virtual machine software such as Parallels running Windows OS XP/2000 or later, you will not be able to use Hooked On Phonics Master Reader on your computer. That said...

This is a great product and I agree with prior reviewers' comments. However, only after we purchased the software did we realize that the CDs will only work with XP/2000 or later operating systems. Nowhere on the packaging does it list system requirements to warn the purchaser that the software only works on windows based operating systems. Only after I dug into technical support on HOP website did I find a statement saying Macs are not supported. Interesting that there is a software producer today ignoring the Mac community, especially considering the proliferation of Macs in the educational environment.

I want to start by saying this is a great product. I bought this for my 5-year-old after completing the Learn to Read program. These are excellent programs, and the added bonus of the computer games make it even more enjoyable for her.

I do, however, have one complaint. . . Thought I was getting a great deal, as I could not find elsewhere online for a better price (plus, shipping was only $4). However, I was at Wal-Mart a few days ago and saw the same set for $80! (Grrrr. . . ) The box looks a bit different on the outside, but the contents are identical. I wasn't able to find this set on Wal-Mart's website, but it is in stores. Check there first and save yourself close to $50!

Format: Paperback
Hooked on Phonics is essentially a "decoding" program. Thus, students who complete the first five level program will have developed basic decoding skills (which is where many students are at the end of first grade). This is the second phase of the HOP reading development program. The HOP Master Reader program improves on the decoding skills via (1) software, (2) reading cards, and (3) four reading books. There are ten separate sections for each level each containing a software phase and reading card phase.

Software: The software helps increase a child's vocabulary via syllabic breakdown and word recognition. The first level (Blue level) starts out with mostly two syllables words expanding upon the rules a child learned in the HOP program and making more extensive use of those original rules learned in HOP. The introduction in word complexity increases gradually to words containing five to six syllables by the last (Red) level which is the fourth level. The software helps teach specific rules for various combinations of letters thus increasing analytic breakdown rather than just memorization by sight (i.e. hoping = long 'o' because of only one p vs. hopping = short 'o' because of two p's, etc.) (Note: As an aside, I found there to be several different examples of various rules regarding letter combinations which I was not even aware of.) Some of the sections will have only 20-30 words to be learned, while others have over 200 words. Thus, there is tremendous vocubalary development. This software runs on Vista although HOP will say it isn't Vista compatible. The only problem I found is that it doesn't retain the Child's records (past scoring history) after being closed out.

Reading Cards: These follow a successful completion of the software section.
