Misleading trial charges

The membership information is misleading. They offer a trial but is NOT a free trial by the time you realize that is NOT free you have already been charged $89.99 I cancelled the trial and wrote to them inmidiately and they told me NO REFUND even though I never used it. Basically, they stole $89.99 in one click.

Extremely disappointed

Content is poorly aligned and full of errors, so students are set up for failure on exams. Seems they are trying to get students to fail so you’ll need to pay to retake the course. And they are totally unresponsive to support requests. (They literally ignore of simply say that’s not their department.)

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (1):

This impressively comprehensive app (and website) can help kids and adults learn more about an amazing breadth of topics. But may be most useful for high schoolers and college students. Whether your teen is struggling in an entry-level math or foreign language class or studying for an AP biology test or the SAT, this app has a resource to help kids learn or review. There are also college and career guides available to help high school students make that important college choice. A unique feature of is that high school and college students can earn college credits, if credit-by-exam is allowed at their higher ed (or future higher ed) institution. This is an innovative, wide-ranging resource for anyone looking for more ways to learn, and while the subscription prices are significant for most families, the volume of resources and opportunity to earn expensive college credits will likely make the cost worth it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
