Neill, Shirley Boes; Neill, George W.
This cumulative guide lists the 550 highest rated programs identified by "Only the Best" from the evaluation reports of 37 evaluation services over a 5-year period. The introduction describes the selection criteria used as well as the individual evaluation services whose evaluations were used, and lists sources where the evaluations originally appeared. The first of two major sections provides an alphabetical listing of the programs by title which serves as a table of contents to the listings by the following subject areas: arts, business education, college entrance exams, computer education, computer science, early childhood education, foreign language, health education, language arts, math, problem solving, science, social studies, student helpers, tool programs, and typing. Each entry under the subject heading includes the title of the program, its producer, copyright data, grade level(s), hardware requirements, cost, type of program, a brief description, a listing of evaluation conclusions, and bibliographic citations for reviews that appeared in magazines. The second section provides the names, addresses, and phone numbers of producers of all the programs included in this edition. (BBM)
