HI All I was wondering, does anyone use Alpha&Omega Lifepacs, if so do you like them? Thanks in advance for any replies.

I worked for the company that publishes Lifepacs. The basic idea is good but some of the subjects have a lot of flaws. The Spanish Lifepacs were discontinued because of the numerous errors. The company entered a partnership with PowerGlide and uses their print text now. I would not recommend PowerGlide. I found it to have errors and difficult on the high school level. The format is not interesting to students.

Last year I purchased lifepac history and science for 2nd grade. My dd hated it...and so did I.

I didn't care for the format, and it was a little too much but not enough all in the same. Parts of it were overly easy and we didn't even finish them because they were soo boring.

Hope that helps :)

This is our first year HSing and we are using AO LifePacs for Kindergarten
and 4th grade. We are enjoying them so far.

I used them for 1st and 2nd grades and was happy with them.

I am using LifePac 9th grade  Language Arts and History & Geography  and Health, for my son.  He seems to be doing alright with them. I am new this year (4-5weeks ago new!)  to homeschooling so I was looking for something that will keep him busy without it being too frustrating for me. 
With his math I am using Saxon Algebra 1/2 (he should be in Algebra 1 However he is behind) For his Biology I am using Apologia.

I would have to say my son and I like the LifePac for some of the subjects.

The Spectrum workbooks are also a good comprehensive program that is a lot cheaper. I have reviewed both these programs on my blog. Lifepacs have the Christian influence in them but Spectrum are to the point and a bit more enjoyable for students to use.
