Customer Reviews
Good bio slide set, but missing fungi Review by
Overall, a very good survey of biology topics in the slide set, professionally stained so you can identify what you are seeing. There are no representatives of fungi, which surprised me because there was at least one slide for every other major topic in my biology textbook. I will order an extra slide or two before my next kid starts bio.
should have from the start Review by
I am teaching Apologia Biology to a class of five boys. I have blank slides and we thought we might make all the slides ourselves. Ummm...nice idea. Purchased these at an amazing discount and the hard work is now done! We get to see everything perfectly stained and presented and make our own sloppy slides for fun. Best idea ever.
I can see everthing! Review by
All the slides were great. The discrition my daughters gave of the cells were spot on.
biology slides Review by
Everything is as the description says. All my children enjoy looking at these through the microscope.
Great! Review by
My 8 year-old son loved what he saw through his microscope from the very first slide in this set!
Microscope slides for biology Review by
very nice set of slides. we are using these for apologia biology. Shipping was also incredibly fast. Thanks so much.
Really well done Review by
I am really thankful these slides are available at a reasonable price. We had a delay in our homeschool approval process, which involved $$ spent on public school supplies & homeschool supplies/curriculum. The time delay & xtra $$ spent. I was able to keep my children on schedule with these ready to go slides! Thank you
Good quality slides! Review by
This is a good slide set. We bought it for our middle school child. Even though each individual side was neatly labeled and the slots were numbered, it would have been nice if the list of slides were provided along with the set or pasted inside the box.
Nice! Review by
A nice set of slides. I bought it for my daughter to go with a microscope for Christmas. The quality of the slides are good; the onion root tip slide is great for showing mitosis. A good value overall.
Excellent Quality Review by
Beautiful slides. Includes a very broad sprectrum of specimens for a high school biology student (and a curious mom). I do wish there was a corresponding list inside the cover to aide in finding the slide you're looking for.
homeschool parent Review by
I was simply amazed at how quickly the slide set arrived. We ordered Thursday afternoon and it arrived at our house early Saturday afternoon, all the way from Montana to Pennsylvania. I was pleased with packaging. The specimen set was well protected and wrapped to prevent damage. The specimens are neatly and well preserved. We will get much use out of this set as we are currently studying protists and small pond life. Thanks again for you caring and speedy service.
Special Education Teacher Review by
This is an excellent selection of prepared slides for a biology class. I teach a self-contained class of sxth, seventh, and eighth grade students with emotional disability. The students were able to use the slides to see real examples of the living things we are learning about. The price was very reasonable.
Stunning Review by
These slides are extremely well prepared and at an amazing price. I will definitely be getting more slides from home science tools.
High Quality Bargain Review by
These are so well made and easy to find the organism on each slide. Great for homeschooling - the boxes are very sturdy for storage.
Good Buy and Fast Shipping Review by
These slides were just what we needed at a reasonable price! They make biology labs so easy. Plus, I could hardly believe it when I received them 2 days after ORDERING! What great turn around. If the need arises, we will definitely order supplies from Home Science Tools again!
Excellent variety and price Review by
When you compare this set and it's price to other science suppliers out there, it's a no-brainer. The slides show excellent detail and are well made. The variety crosses the spectrum for your biology course. An excellent set all around!
Fabulous quality and variety Review by
I spent several weeks comparison shopping for prepared slides, and for price and selection this set was the obvious choice... but I hesitated because it seemed almost too good to be true. I would much rather pay extra and have my children use high quality slides. A slide with no discernible details is essentially useless! However, I decided to trust HST (and the many positive reviews I had seen of their products) - and we have not regretted it for an instant! This is a marvelous starter set for introductory high school biology - and you cannot beat the price!
