The program begins with a series of rather general questions that seem intended to test your ability to categorize things. You must choose to which class--history, English, science, phys. ed.--a given topic, such as "cells," belongs. Or you choose in which group--dairy products, meat and poulty, fruits and vegetables, grains and pasta--a given food, such as carrots, is found.

Having honed your categorization skills, you move on to more complex tasks. As we worked through this second section, we were reminded of the Weekly Reader reading comprehension tests that we enjoyed (yes, enjoyed) as children. In this case, the reading selection is found in a 12-page booklet that comes with the program. When you have finished reading the selection, you answer questions posed by the computer.

Part of the EasyReader series.
