We recently switched from abeka math to Saxon and it was a great fit for us! My daughter was struggling with the fast pace of Abeka and not enough explanation and with Saxon she has been completely independent. We got the teaching DVD and the teacher explains the lesson so well! My daughter said that the teacher breaks it down in a way that she can really understand. We are very happy!

We were looking for a program that my 8th grader could basically on his own. He picks up things slow, and when we just had the book he tended to skip the instructions. He also loves to do anything on the computer. This is working very well for him. The instruction portion of each lesson takes usually 30 minutes, an goes through everything from the book, for him he needs that. It may be too drawn out for some kids (get bored), but works well for us. He is able to do math completely on his own (so far after 6 weeks of school).

I love these books. My son is able to pick them right up and follow along! The tutorials at the beginning of each lesson make it so easy to follow along. I love having a test booklet so we can check to make sure he understood everything before we move on. I LOVE IT!

This product is very easy to understand and makes it very easy for children to learn. It is also very understandable for moms that have not had algebra in a while.

I think Algebra 1/2 will be great review and good prep for Alegebra 1. Also, I like the student hardcover.

Love Saxon math and it continues to be easy to use. I love that the lesson numbers for each problem are listed under the problem number so that my son can check back to that lesson if he can't remember how to do that type of problem. However, I'm not sure I like how small the print is. It's nice to have a slimmer text but it seems to strain my eyes looking at it sometimes.

I have tried many different curriculum as a home school mom. Saxon is unique because it continually reviews previous lessons. You will find it so easy to use and the kit comes with an answer book as well as the testing book. I would definitely recommend Saxon to all of my home schooling families as well as those who just need a thorough review of pre-algebra.

I am on Lesson 7 of this book (going back to school 9 years after high school) and this is the text book being used in my math class. I have to say this book makes learning math so easy!No fluff or filler, simple explanations lots of review to make sure you really get the concepts and keep getting them. I have always struggled with math, and this book is the first one I can easily understand the first time through. Excellent. Now I just have to plan my class schedule around what other professors use saxon........

I wouldn't skip this book. Our daughters moved through this book quickly, doing 2 lessons a day. The confidence they gained from this book was amazing. Well worth the time.
