I always thought that the student/teacher editions of software were somehow inferior to the real thing.
And then I discovered the secret: they’re the exact same with a lower price as a courtesy to students and teachers. That means that teachers, students and, yes, homeschoolers can pick up software at a ridiculously low price with proof of status.
Sometimes you can pick these up at Amazon.com; other times it pays to go through a site like Academic Superstore, and of course check the company site as well to make sure you’re getting the best price.

You’ll need to fax or email proof of your eligibility before you’ll receive a license to unlock your software, so be sure you’re eligible before you make your purchase.
