SAT Prep and Jay Wile’s New Science

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

If you have a child preparing to take the SATs, we have the prep books for you! I have over 15 books from all the big publishers (College Board, Princeton Review, Barrons, Kaplan). These are the ones that are as fat as a phone book. The copyright dates range from 2005-2014 and are priced accordingly. The most expensive one is half off the retail price and they go down from there. 2005 was the last time the SAT was revised so all of these books are geared for the current test.

We also have prep books for the CLEP, AP and the regular testing required for PA.

Jay Wile has just come out with the second book in his elementary science series, Science in the Ancient World. I have it in stock if you would like to see it.

Some housekeeping:

Kinderbach–If you consigned a set, please contact me. We have a set in the shop that has lost its consignment tag.

I am in need of plastic grocery bags, if you would like to recycle them with me.

I have bubble wrap, free for the taking. Just ask! I also have cardboard boxes accumulating out in front of the store. We will be burning them at the end of next week so come grab them if you need them (you don’t have to come during store hours for those).

 

Have a great day!

Notice to Consignors

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

Thanks to all who participated in the two-day quarter sale. We sold 1,780 books which did accomplish my goal of making some room in the Bargain Bookshelves! They are still about 2/3 full which made me realize my initial estimate of 4,000 books back there was a little low. It was probably more like around 6,000.

Note to Consignors:  I will be gradually switching over my payment system to an online banking Bill Pay. The only difference this makes to you is that when you receive the check in the mail I don’t think the PA Curriculum Exchange name will be in the return address of the envelope. I imagine it will say something like PNC Bank. I just wanted to warn you so you don’t throw the check away as junk mail!

Happy Spring–I think it might be really here now. :-)

Reminder for Quarter Sale

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

Just wanted to remind you that tomorrow and Wednesday is the bargain section sale.  All books are 25 cents. This includes more than 4,000 items.  It’s a good way to stock up on resources for your homeschool.

If you are coming and have plastic grocery bags you would like to recycle, I would happily accept them!  Also bringing canvas shopping bags for your own use is helpful as they are good for carrying books.

Also, the annual Alpha Omega sale (20% off new items) is in effect now till the end of April.

Hope to see you this week! :-)
