  • MattB - Childish!

    These supposedly brilliant authors don't seem to realize that preparing for a standardized test is never going to be fun for us (maybe bc it's so much fun for them). Instead of just giving you the essentials, this book spends way too many pages trying (and failing) to entertain you with middle school humor. For me, it just made the whole process even more painful. Honestly, I question a lot of the positive reviews on here. Are we talking about the same book? Take my advice: don't waste your time on this one!

  • Casagodinez - Light airy oil

    I have tried a few different Frankincense essential oils. What I like best about the New York Biology oil is how light it is. It quickly absorbs into the skin when applied, but doesn't leave you with a slick, greasy sheen. We use a lot of Frankincense in my home. It's one of those oils that's good for a laundry list of ailments. I've already used NYB oil on a few skin ailments with positive results, and it dissipates well in the diffuser. I mix it with lavender and put it in the kid's room to help them get a good night's sleep on school days. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is that it is not for ingestion, and we've found that Frankincense stops seizures when taken orally. I received this item free in exchange for an honest review.

  • J. Montgomery - Craps on this game Blows!

    I bought this game to help me with my craps game (understanding the rules and how to bet without blowing lots of cash at the casino in real life). However, this game is terrible. There are many poorly designed elements to this game that make it hard to play. For instance, you cannot tell how much $ you have out on the table because it only shows the top chip of the stacked chips. There is no total value to tell you how much you have on the pass line or on place bets. You shouldnt have to count the number of clicks and type of chips to calculate how much your betting. In real life you can count 3 reds and know it is 15. In this game, you see a stack and the number 5 which could mean 10 or 15 or even a 100. The selection of chips is also terrible. You have to constantly click the reset button to select chips anytime you want to change the bet amount - which if you like to bet different amounts on different things... is all the time. This is only the tip of the iceberg on the fails of this game.
