After a terrible experience with a different website, I was extremely concerned about using another one, but I needed to get my sons school supplies, and I had no local options. I bit the bullet and found this business to be everything the other was not. They were pleasant to deal with on the phone, and they shipped my order quickly and accurately. Upgrading part of the package for one son who is advanced in math and science was not a problem at all, and though the entire order did not ship at once, most of it was, and the rest came in shortly thereafter.

All in all, a very welcome change from the prior company, and a company I have gone back to since.

This web site is a fraud. Once you place your order, you will never get it, and if you try to get your money back it won't happen. I had used my bank debit card, which they charged immediately for over $400 worth of material, and then never shipped the order. When I and my wife attempted to call them, the phone would ring until there voice mail picked up. The only way either of us got to talk to anyone (not that it did any good!) was to call them from a different phone, so obviously once they get your money they screen your calls. I went to my bank to get the charge reversed, and when the Bank sent the chargeback to this business, they responded to it with an elaborate lie claiming that I had purchased a downloadable curriculum package! They had even doctored up a web page that purported to show that I had downloaded the software. The funny part was that the website they sent in screen shots of wasn't even the one I'm reviewing ( http://www.homeschoolcurriculumshop.com) but from another site ( http://www.homeschoolstockroom.com). If you look at both sites, you will see that they are almost identical in content, though they use a slightly different layout. I ended up getting my money refunded by the bank, and they were going to pursue the business, I do not know the results of that effort.

Please, save yourself a ton of grief, and do not order anything from this site or the other site I mentioned. If you are having trouble finding someplace, I have had wonderful experiences with http://www.homeschoolsupercenter.com/new_site/home.php
