Good math book, but has typo's. Jul 18, 2007
This book is helping me getting freshed up in math but it contains a few typo's. For example, on page 7 it says there are two #5 problems. There should be obviously one problem #5 and the other is problem #6. Nevertheless, it is a good math book. I just wished it gave more examples on how to actually DO some of the work.
Not as advertised Feb 18, 2007
I loved the grade 6-8 edition of this book for reviewing math with my daughter. It is an excellent step by step approach to middle school math. This edition is the same book with very little added. It is not "high school" math. I wouldn't call it "Book Two". I was expecting something very different based on the title. Highly recommended for 6-7 grade math practice and review.
From the mind of a child Oct 18, 2006
This is an amazing book. i didn't need to use the book for homeschooling or anything but it helped me with my confidence going into sixth grade.

Good book Jun 7, 2006
I used this book in my home school this year and all three of my kids tested many grade levels above average. Great book.
A Very Enthusiastic Review Jan 20, 2006
Over the years, I have purchased countless "learning guides" for my two daughters. We always started with the best intentions but quickly became bored and found an excuse to try something else.
Mastering Essential Math skills (6-8) is different! We are trying to figure out what to do when we complete this book. (Only about 20 more pages). I wish there was a sequel!
I am not aware of any other books that do a quick review of basic skills, a good review of newly learned materials, followed by a new lesson on almost every page. There is an overall review for the section as well as the book. It's fast paced learning with review, review, review.
I have recommended this book to my friends and would recommend it to you as well.
