              Comments about The Complete National Geographic DVD-ROMs: 1888-2013 Edition:

              I bought it to find articles about the Lemon Island Marina in Beaufort, SC because I know that 2 were written between 1990 and 2006. I contacted Nation
              Geographic to find the dates and they told me that there is no digital index.
              This seemed a good solution. I unfortunately cannot find them and have even gotten help searching. We found some other kinds of interesting local articles, but not what I wanted.

                  The text is sometimes hard to read unless it's blown up to full screen. The installation of the entire DVD from scratch in Windows 7 is almost impossible unless you do it after restoring Windows to factory default and you haven't connected to internet for the updates. Still you can't get this reference to the world in digital from anywhere else. Hope CNG updates the software to make it more accommodating.

                        This is the newest CNG to date and is very easy to install. To check for updates you go to go to Preferences and follow the directions as listed. Also check the box for "automatic update". I would recommend this to anyone interested in the happenings of the world from 1888 - 2013. The price is very reasonable for what knowledge you will get in return.

                                      It is wonderful to be able to sit and look through magazines published before I was even born. Even back then the photography (given the type of the day) was incredible !!!

                                            How to Win the National Geographic Bee aims to help kids in grades four through eight prepare to compete in the Society's annual geography competition. Featuring maps, photos, graphs, a variety of questions actually used in past bees, plus an extensive resource section, the guide not only reviews geographic facts but also helps readers recognize themes, identify relationships, and understand how geographers think. In the 4th edition all statistics have been revised to reflect the most up-to-date figures, new question rounds have been added as well as new tips on how to study from Bee winners, and resources have been reviewed to ensure the most current offerings.
