"This series of tapes is great. They have a sense of humor without clouding the details of the science they are teaching. They present the topics in rapid fire action that prevents any thought of boredom. Great learning tool that makes learning chemistry easy and fun. Good for elementary through college levels."

"... and then, and only then, should you give Standard Deviant's Chemistry a look. First, the topics and the way they are covered is pretty basic. Second, not much is said in regards to the most common mistakes that chem students make (not reffering to Kelvin temp. in terms of degrees and Sig. Figs. are mentioned.) Third, the Deviants are somewhat distracting but hilarious nonetheless. But overall, these are excellent review and supplemental aids for they help impress upon you what is critical, but only slightly effective on their own and by themselves. Good luck with Chemistry!"
Good but a little cheesy

"My kids are 16 and 19. The younger one thought there was no redeeming value and that it was more appropriate for a 10 year old. Well, 10 is a bit young for this video.
The basic chem info is in here. Lots of odd hype in the telling--reminded me of the old Monty Python, without the crudeness.
Bottom line, if you need a quick overview and aren't bothered by the distracting "try to be fun" presentation, it is worth buying. If you think the subject needs more serious contemplation, it is definitely not for you."
