The information in the videos that Lee provides is amazing. The workbooks, sample transcripts, handouts, and planning guides were very helpful to me as I am a very visual person. Being able to print out these aids for reference is very helpful to look back on as you are working on your child transcript. In the video, High School Grades and Credits, Lee provides a color wheel to break down three different grading scales. In the, One Hour Transcript Workshop, Lee breaks down what a student needs to accomplish in order to receive a full credit, a half credit, and then an A, B, C, and then grades below a C. This is extremely helpful, especially for those that are creating a high school transcript for the first time. The GPA calculator! Knowing how to calculate a GPA is simple and easy. Lee's handout give's you step-by-step instructions. I will say that Total Transcript Solution would have really helped me a lot back when I was creating my very first high school transcript.  

With each audio download additional resource material is provided which can be printed out if you wish.

This is taken from the FAQ: Will this work on my Mac? "The templates are formatted for MS Word, Excel, and Pages. The Pages document will run on a Mac. If you need to open a Word or Excel document on your Mac you will need a special application. There are many free and paid programs out there that allow Macs to open Microsoft products."
There are 10 sample transcripts in various formats and styles. Some of the sample transcripts are completed so that you can see what a completed transcript should look like. I really like that she has so many sample transcript options available. Everyone has a different idea as to what they feel looks best and works best for them when it comes to working with a transcript. Lee points out that colleges and universities prefer to have more detailed courses on a transcript. For example instead of English III, English IV, they like to see Writing and 20th Century Literature, Writing and British Literature. Be sure to add in your student's extra curricular activities, volunteer positions, honors, etc. Driver's Education can count as 0.5 credit hours. These are just some of the things that you will learn about creating your students transcript. 

Book Instruction

This eBook is for those that learn best from reading. I enjoyed reading through the eBook and found that I actually took in more by reading that by listening to the audios. Important take aways are in highlighted boxes or are bolded. This eBook will be your best friend during the 4 years that your student is in high school. It is definitely worth printing out! 

Examples of highlighted boxes and bolded text. 

Lee provides one 20 minute personal phone consultation.

  1. ha! You reminded me to put in the social media stuff! Thanks! :) It's a good product eh?

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    Thank you for the wonderful review! Yes, the GPA calculator is a big deal. I can tell you, even I was nervous about calculating GPA and made sure my engineering husband double checked my work, LOL!

    I'm so glad this product was able to teach a few things to even a veteran homeschool mom like yourself! I tried to answer all the questions people have about the process.
