I just wanted to share with you a success story about my 16 year old son. He has been using Essentials in Writing since 7th grade and has gone through two years of Essentials in Literature. He did great on his dual credit entrance exam and had a near perfect score on the writing section. Additionally, he passed his English Language AP test and will now receive 3 hours credit for English 101/1301. Thanks for designing an amazing program that has been such a blessing to our family!
