Unless there is another version of this I don't know about, it doesn't work if you have a Macbook Pro unless you have the older operating system Snow Leopard; Apple discontinued a certain element of the hardware that reads something called PowerPC. You have the option of running Snow Leopard parallel to Mountain Lion but that costs some money and know-how when it comes to working with computers. I haven't fully figured it out yet, but I haven't had the time to sit down and try to sort it out. I've been using the computers in my college's library in the mean time.

You also have the option of getting Windows on your Mac by using Bootcamp, but if you don't already have an extra copy of Windows 7 or 8 lying around it can get super expensive.

Other than that whole spiel, the program itself is pretty cool. I'm an anthropology major so I'm really into this kinda thing. I've only done one lab but it was pretty straightforward and easy to navigate. It wasn't too long either. The quiz at the end was helpful in gauging how well you understand the topics discussed and the rollover aspect (some words are highlighted and if you click on it it gives you either a definition or some more information on the subject) is really interesting.

I'll update if I figure out another way to get this program to work on my Macbook, but until then I'm stuck using a bloody Windows computer (so snobbish, right? lol).

A cd rom, really? This is a requirement for a college biology course needed for graduation. This is for an online course, so if you think about it I I'm having to switch between the university's online website where I have to answer the questions found in the CD ROM and then switch back to the cd ROM. The material content is interesting and very well done but the format just doesn't work. It also displays in a small box on the screen which is roughly about 5 x 7. There is no way to enlarge it. Through the drop-down menu for each chapter and it makes researching material cumbersome. This is not great when reading 36 pages flipping back-and-forth from box to box in order to find the material.

This does not work on Macbook Pro, even though it is the newest version it is way outdated! Goes to show that companies are more worried about profit over the customer. After opening my worthless $200 CD, I might as well use it as a windshield scraper.

No scratches or scuffs, works perfectly on my computer. It's very informative and the interactive segments really help to reinforce concepts.
