Totally agree with these. I've used it and it's what my mom used when we were growing up. We were always a couple grades ahead, so it wasn't tearfully boring. The little boy I taught was terribly let down by the public school system and his math skills were lacking. The way Saxon math operates, what he learned one week built on what he had learned a couple weeks prior. It kept everything fresh in his mind and forced him to actually LEARN the principles, rather than do enough just to skate by. It was exactly what he needed, and for more advanced students like my brother and myself, it presented just enough new material at a time to be challenging without frustrating.
