I bought this for my upcoming 8th and 9th graders. I looked through every lesson, and nearly everything in here is covered in their science courses (General Science and Earth Science). This doesn't seem like geography to me. For the record, it has excellent descriptions and pictures and looks like a great book to use if you're looking for a study of the earth. Maybe this is what the title, World PHYSICAL Geography, implies. I'm sending it back for a refund.

I do not recommend purchasing this set.It was printed in 1992 and is not current.Sometimes miles and Km are printed and other times (KM) is not. There are errors on tests,for example in Lesson 28,Chapter 9 the answer to the question(3) is wrong.{ Page 128 --TeachersGuide}
Chapter 9 Lesson 28
3.A cataract is a:
a.Narrowing of a river
b.dam across a river
c.a large or high waterfall
The correct answer is c But the answer guide says b
Thank goodness there are only 12 chapters in this course---3 to go.
Had I known the publishing date, I would have never purchased this set..not worth the money I paid for it

So far we love this book! Purchased it this year for my 9th grader. Book is very thorough and we love the hands on activities. I have found that it sparks a lot conversation between my son and I. I think I will try it next year with my son who will be in 8th grade. Very happy with my purchase!!
