American Decades
by Marge Congress

Presents a very favorable review of American Decades ($600/site license) from Gale Group of Farmington Hills, MI (800). Requires for a single user: 386 processor, DOS 5.0, Windows 3.1 or higher, 8MB RAM, 5MB free hard disk space, 256 colors, 8-bit sound card, and a CD-ROM player. Relates that American Decades examines the 20th century in America with 200 primary documents, more that 1,200 photos and illustrations, video and audio clips of significant events, lists and tables of achievements for each year, and a navigable timeline of world and national events. States that this program offers the U.S. history student almost too much material, and it is very likely that a student would not have to go anywhere else to find information. Recommends it for high school students, and teachers of all grade levels. Rated five on a scale of one to five. Contains one screen display and a scorecard.
