Has pros and cons

I 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.
Especially if you are doing a self-teaching curriculum. 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.
I 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.
