This product is fairly easy to use, but would be even more appreciated if the Solution manual was included in the kit, which is of great help for my daughter. It's very disappointing to have to spend extra money for it.

This set is everything that is needed to teach/learn Algebra 1. We also purchased the Teacher CD's to aid with it. My child has enjoyed doing math with this program. I have even started our younger daughter on the Saxon products.

This book has many great features. One of my favorite features is that all the review practice problems have (in parenthesis) the lesson from where the problem was taken. This helps if you or your child have forgotten something, you can quickly turn back.

We have used Saxon math for several years and I really like it, having seen great improvement in my student's comprehension and computation skills. This set would receive five stars if it included the complete solutions manual. Just the answer key is not sufficient when the accuracy of each step in a problem is important for reaching the solution.

(First - to "Tracy"....they sell the "Solutions Guide" separately with all the problems worked out as you are used to from previous levels of Saxon.)

We loved Saxon up thru 8/7.... but once our daughter hit Algebra this text was not helpful enough in answering WHY problems were to be solved in a certain way - only the method was to be memorized IMO. We ended up switching after 6 painful months to Harold Jacobs Algebra and it was much better for my daughter to understand. If Mathematics comes easily to your child, Saxon may be the best choice but if they begin to start floundering don't wait 6 months like we did. I feel we really did a disservice to our daughter by not looking for alternatives sooner.

It would be great if the teacher key also included the problems worked out. Having that feature was very helpful to me as the parent/teacher when we used the Saxxon 5/6 math book. I assumed it would be the same in all teacher key books.

i was looking for a product that would allow my child to feel successful. He struggled with math and Saxon truly has helped. He as gone from D's to A's. He is happy and when we come across an area he doesn't understand we can go back and practice.

We can't give half stars so I had to go down to four. I didn't give five because I would like the Saxon program to be a little more conceptual than it is. As far as the available homeschool programs that I've tried, this one is thorough and the easiest to stick to (I've also tried Singapore and rececently began Life-of-Fred as a geometry supplement). If this last tidbit of info helps anyone, my son took a diagnostic practice ACT with Princeton Review. He is only a beginning Freshman (Alg I completed in 8th and one month into Geometry), so it is more a measure of his math upon completion of Saxon Alg I. Anyway, his math score was a 20 at this point. (Not bad starting point since the test covers Alg I & II, Geom, & Trig) So that is my best unbiased assessment of where Saxon Alg I program will get you at completion.

This text, CD, tests, and answer key came in a timely manner. It is a great curriculum and very thorough. The only thing my daughter has a problem with is that it starts out very slowly. I reassured her they are just reviewing!

Saxon math takes a lot of time for each lesson on the part of the student, but it is very thorough. We got the DIVE cd with the Algebra I and that is a BIG help. On the other hand, it is very expensive ($50) and you can't sell it or give it to a friend. Which is WRONG. You can sell the book, why not the cd that goes with it?

We have tried other math programs like Life Pac(old version c.1979) which had no instructions, just problems, Keys to Algebra I which didn't have hardly any explanations either. So with my second student entering 9th grade, we are using the Saxon Algebra I. So far it is going pretty well, but takes about 1 hour everyday.

The pages in the test booklet are so thin and not very sturdy. That is my only complaint. All else is good about the product.
