Ds is probably not going to finish Discovering Design with Chemistry by Dr. Wile in one school year. It may take him a couple of months into the following school year. (I could have him finish it over the summer, but I'm trying to be realistic here. We typically don't get much done during the summer.) I'd like for him to be able to sit for the CLEP or AP Chem test after next year. Is there anything (preferably secular or not overly religious- Wile was fine) he could complete in a matter of 6-8 months which would prepare him for this? I'm considering Thinkwell AP Chem, but it has no lab component. He will need proof of labs for the colleges he's considering (STEM major.) It needs to be under $300 total.
Saw on Jay Wile's blog this morning that he has a high school chemistry text slated to be released this fall. http://blog.drwile.com/?p=13366 It was sparked off by his poor view of the third edition of Apologia's Chemistry and feedback he had from others about that text. I bought a second edition used earlier this year after hearing the bad press about the third edition. Interested to see it, although it seems a real deadline rush to put together a whole text.
