If you have the Apologia "Exploring Creation with Chemistry" textbook then you'll also need this Solutions and Tests to go with it. The solutions for the practice problems at the end of each chapter are here, as well as the solutions for the tests. These solutions are not merely the answers to the problems but are detailed, step-by-step solutions. The practice with these solutions is an essential part of the Apologia chemistry program.

As far as the textbook itself, here is my review:

Our school is a small classical Christian school and is very intensive in certain areas at the high school level, especially in the area rhetoric and writing. We could not accomplish all we wanted to in all of the other disciplines if our science classes were exceptionally challenging. We also have very limited resources to equip a science lab. For a school like ours and for homeschoolers, the Apologia text is perfect.

All of the most important concepts in chemistry are presented in the text and done so in a scientifically credible way. At the same time, the concepts are presented in a way that my students are generally able to understand for themselves (with some exceptions, such as the complicated heat equations in Chapter 2). I appreciate that the book offers several labs per chapter and that they're labs that can be done with household chemicals. Since we don't have a true chemistry lab or a budget for more expensive equipment, these labs are perfect for allowing us to do scientifically meaningful labs on a budget.

It's true, as some reviewers have noted, that the book is somewhat simplified, compared to certain other high school chemistry texts. There's no comparison between the Apologia Chemistry text and a text that might be used to teach AP Chemistry.

All of J Wile's books are extremely well organized and well written. I've educated my children at home for the past 22 years and can say one of my biggest complaints about curriculum is the way they do the testing. J Wile takes this part of the process very seriously and puts as much effort into making the tests and study guide relevant and useful as he did into the text itself.

For a Christian home educator, if it's Apologia, you know it's good. Their Chemistry is no exception. Well thought out and thorough keeping a biblical mindset throughout.
