My kids used Saxon Math for the first time in Charter School here in Utah. This last year I have decided to home school my 11 year old son for a couple of reasons. This home school pack has been FABULOUS! My son watches the DVD for about 15-20 minutes and then begins the lessons. He says the DVD is great and he understands everything the instructor teaches him. This is shown in his ability to do the assignments. All I have had to do is correct the assignments. He then revises the mistakes and we are done! Saxon Math is a must. There is an online exam from Saxon that you can print out and determine which level your child should be at. It worked great for us. It was right on.
