If this package of ten CD-ROMs, that work both on a Windows PC or a Macintosh computer, were priced at several hundred dollars, it would be very worthwhile to make a careful and comprehensive evaluation of this package. At this price, this package might end up being a reasonable value, but this package sells for less than $50!
Going into an exhaustive review process would be a waste of your time to read and mine time to write. Spend your time instead by going to the store and BUYING this package.

In case you are still reading this article and need more justification, consider the following. To take your two kids and spouse to the movies would cost - let's say $10 for an adult ticket, $5 for each children's ticket, plus about $12 in pop, candy and popcorn. With $8 for gas, oil parking and mileage, you have spent around $50 for about 4 hours entertainment, assuming you count that trip to and from the movies as being entertaining. Even if you use this package only once for a single evening's entertainment, it presents an excellent value. For several evenings of entertainment, getting some homework done, saving a trip to the library and the package almost begins to pay for itself!
