Science Shepherd Biology is an excellent course. This curriculum is thorough, systematic, understandable and absolutely usable in the homeschool. I am excited to see what the future holds for this up and coming company. If they produce such beautiful, orderly, complete curriculum right out of the gate, I look forward to seeing what they do in the future. I highly recommend Science Shepherd Biology!

Our family found the Life Science set from Science Shepherd to be a good middle school level science course. The organization was well thought out. The book covers material, builds upon it, and then refers to previously learned facts while continuing to provide deeper information. We look forward to using this course with our children for years to come! To read full review click here.

It holds my interest, looks appealing, doesn’t overwhelm or intimidate me. Science Shepherd Biology is one biology curriculum I believe my less-interested students could have gotten through fairly painlessly, learning quite a bit along the way!…. The lesson format is user-friendly, making it possible for a student to work through the text independently.
We are really enjoying the depth, detail and organization of the course. My daughter is able to retain so much, even after a two-week break. She says it is her favorite subject. The section topic questions and chapter study questions may be key to her understanding and allows me to stop and ask her questions and discuss for full understanding. The course has the kind of depth that I did not come across when I took high school Advanced Biology! Our children will be very prepared for any college level biology after diligently completing this course! Thank you for all of your efforts in producing the course!
Just wanted to drop a quick note and say how much we are enjoying the Life Science curriculum. Hands down, it is the best program out there. Do wish it had a lab book with it, but that’s not a deterrent or negative. We absolutely will use the Biology program and have given the Life Science text rave reviews to anyone who is interested.
These courses fit a unique niche in the homeschool market since they are designed for independent study, teach at a challenging level, deal with the evolution/creation question in a manner not offensive to creationists, and provide a lab component, all without requiring parental involvement beyond checking answers.

This is an extremely well-designed biology course and the lab components are sure to win a lot of accolades as more homeschooling parents experience this course. To read full review click here.
What do you do when you’re a homeschooling dad and a medical doctor and you don’t see many good options for parents tackling high school science at home? Why, you write your own, of course! And the result is impressive, especially for a newcomer to the curriculum scene. Author Scott Hardin didn’t just reinvent the wheel here – I think he’s added the equivalent of antigravity boosters with some of the excellent features he’s built in. To read full review click here.
I stumbled upon Science Shepherd Biology. Immediately, I was impressed! I liked that it was written by a physician; that encouraged me! A doctor should know his biology! I liked that the course included human anatomy, something that many books don’t have in the first level. This may be her only biology course she takes, so it needed to have human anatomy. The book is colorful and engaging. There are tons of diagrams, flow charts, and pictures. Everything from cells, genetics, plants, DNA and RNA, the animal kingdoms, human anatomy, ecology, and evolution vs. creationsim is included. To read full review click here.
