foster readerNew York, NYAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Has pros and consJune 24, 2013foster readerNew York, NYAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I have used Saxon math books with my two kids for the last three years and I've found there are some pros and cons. First, the pro: previous lessons are constantly reviewed, giving students plenty of opportunities for reinforcement. Cons: the practice pages are long and tedious. the lesson taught in each chapter doesn't go into enough depth. there's not enough problems to solve using lessons learned in current chapter. I would say 90% of the problems are from previous chapters and only 10% is from current chapter.
This book works well for students who require constant review but not necessarily for those who like a challenge and want to advance quickly.

The Saxon math books are very well written. My special needs 13 yr old and my eleven year old both are using the Saxon Math 7/6 and they seldom ask for assistance.
Sarah Wade2 Stars Out Of 5August 22, 2010Sarah WadeI was delighted to find Saxon Math 7/6 at a lower price, but when I received it, I was disappointed to see that it was printed on a thinner, cheaper, newspaper-like paper. I would rather pay a little more for a better quality textbook.
