What is the difference between Basic and YoungMinds?

The Differences Between Basic and YoungMinds

  1. Calendars - YoungMinds includes all of the calendars, whereas Basic does not.
  2. PDF files - Basic includes most of Donna's PDF files; YoungMinds offers 1,152 additional PDF files (as of 9/9/15, [this number does not include calendars]).
  3. Doc Files - Basic includes doc files. YoungMinds has more doc files
  4. XLS files & V Planner (spreadsheets) - XLS files (spreadsheets) are included at YoungMinds. Basic will not include XLS or XLSX files (spreadsheets) that were made by Donna Young. Please note that you must have Microsoft Excel on your computer in order to use many of the spreadsheets. This means that some of my spreadsheets are only compatible with Microsoft Excel.
