Saxon Publishing Saxon Algebra 1, Solutions Manual

This manual contains solutions to every problem in the Algebra 1, Third edition, textbook by John Saxon. Early solutions of problems of a particular type contain every step. Later solutions omit steps considered unnecessary. These solutions are designed to be representative of a student's work. Please keep in mind that many problems will have more than one correct solution. We have attempted to stay as close as possible to the methods and procedures outlined in the textbook. The final answers have been set in boldface type in order that they may be easily seen for grading purposes. Softcover, 260 pages.

We use this Solutions Manual every time to check our answers. Every problem is worked out, so we could see if our procedure in the problem is correct. We also used the Saxon Teacher DVD which has helped us enourmously. If we got stuck on a problem, we would run the DVD where it would be explained very thoroughly. Having the Solutions Manual has helped us to see very quickly where we are making a mistake. Thank you Saxon!!!

Even though we're using Saxon Teacher with this course, I really rely on the Solutions Manual to check behind my son. It has every problem worked out completely so I can be sure he's using organized calculations. My son uses the answer key to check his work, but I need the Solutions Manual to check his work thoroughly. I read 1 or 2 other comments somehwere which said that all the problems are not worked out; instead it refers the user to a lesson in the book to figure out some problems. I've got the 3rd edition, and there's none of that. It's complete. We've never used anything except Saxon Math, and I'd never want to used anything else. Fantastic math curriculum in every respect.

While the this Algebra 1 Solution Manual does NOT give the break down to ALL the answers, it does give it to many.
With the above stated, the Saxon Algebra 2 book, does a much better job at give ALL the solutions a complete break down. However, for some answers, Saxon does give give an answer, which I found very frustrating "SEE LESSON- such and such" This "NON Answer-answer," was found only toward the end of the book, this frustrated me to NO END.
SAXON a Solution Manual should have SOLUTIONS not referral to an entire lesson. But all in all, despite a few glitches, I do enjoy Saxon's method best of all.

The solutions manual gives only the answers , not how to get the answers. This is very frustrating. It does give you step by step solutions for the tests. They should do that for the whole book.

The description from this reviewer refers to the Answer Key, which contains only bottom line answers to the problems and solutions to the tests. This item is the Solutions Manual, which contains step-by-step solutions to the problems.

Sorry, but this solutions manual did not help us one bit. I thought it would take us step-by-step through the process of solving a problem. I paid $26 for this and it didn't look any different to us than the answer key. Don't waste your money. Also, I found Saxon Publishers very unhelpful when we needed them. I have the email to prove it.
