Summary: My daughter unexpectedly won the school spelling bee. We purchased this to help her prepare for district. She ended up placing 4th which is good for a first time contestant but I don't think this game helped much.
Summary: I got this for my son who hates to study his spelling words the traditional way. I liked the idea that he could play these games on his DS with his weekly words. Well it is a pain in the but to replace the words every week and only the minigames work with the words you input.
Summary: CONS 1) If I hadn't read the prev. review, I probably would not have figured out how to make a study list. No instructions on how to get there. Bummer that study list can only be accessed via mini game (not spelling bee or practice mode).
