    This saxon is confusing, too repetitive in some areas, has insufficient instruction in other areas, and is NOT A MASTERY program.
    There are too many problems per lesson. An "average" student cannot complete the lesson in an hours time. Students are left feeling that they are "poor" math students.
    BETTER CHOICE would be video text algebra (it also has a pre algebra component) - i would HIGHLY recommend Video Text, which is a MASTERY program that teaches students the "why" of what they are learning.
