Science: Adventures with Atoms and Molecules vs Real Science 4 Real Kids? m...

Honestly, I don't have a real problem with Aw/A&M (other that being a bit brief, from which it redeems itself by being concise and simple, if that makes any sense!). But the RS4RK was brought to my attention and it looks GOOD. It looks more interesting, more in depth (yet concise), and more worth our while in time spent. I have a math/science oriented kiddo whom I believe would enjoy this. It is worth the switch?
Thanks in advance!

General opinion is that the RS4K physics isn't quite as good, and the biology is the weakest of the three. But I can certainly vouch for the chemistry.

One way to cut cost is to try to find 2 other families to do it with you then you can split the cost 3 ways. Just an option.
I really like program. It is much better than Adventures books. If money was an issue then I would stick with Adventures and supplement with library books/videos/websites. Not an issue? Then go for it because it is worth it.
I would only do this for Chemistry though.
