I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to try Microsoft Student With Encarta Premium 2008. I didn’t Microsoft had such a product out there, but let me tell you, we have been enjoying it tremendously now that we have it! I loaded it onto my son’s computer, and now I want to load it on my own! I also have been having a hard time getting Jack and Katrina to stop fiddling with it and do something else! Jack, 10, in particular has been enjoying it tremendously.

- Microsoft Math – which provides step-by-step help with math homework.
I installed this program easily (for me that is always a plus. I only had to click a few buttons (mostly next and okay) to get the program up and running.
