Reviews - What do customers think about Algebra 1 / 2: Homeschool Tests Forms (Homeschool Algebra)?
Check your edition! Apr 24, 2010
I needed the test forms to complete my Algebra 1/2 set. I already had the text and the solution manual for the text and tests. Unfortunately, I have the second edition and the test forms I received are from the third edition. I can still use them, but I'll have to create my own test answer manual as the answers do not match up with the second edition. The description does not specify which edition the tests are for. I incorrectly assumed since they were selling the second edition text book, that the tests would also be second edition. Live and learn.
It is generally not needed - please read the warning Sep 17, 2009
WARNING - Saxon's Algebra is a great course but this is not 'it' - please read below.
All you get is the Test forms in a booklet that is ALWAYS included in the Home Study Kit.
The HOME STUDY KIT is made up of:
1 - The Algebra 1 student's textbook that includes the 123 lessons, the extra topics, index, glossary and an answer key to the odd-numbered problems. 2 - Test forms that include the 31 tests plus reproducible test answer sheets. 3 - Answers and tests solutions booklet that is just that. It only includes the answers not the ways to get there.
You only get #2 if you order this item, meaning that you will NOT be able to teach your students Algebra. Moreover, there is no value in purchasing this booklet as it is always included with the Home Study Kit so, to the extent that you get a textbook, you the tests booklet should be included. Also, keep in mind that the 32 pages can be easily copied and, in fact, the last 2 pages are test forms that are meant to be reproduced.
I love Saxon and I've been using Saxon courses for many years with my children but, unless you already have the other items, you should look for the Home Study Kit or any other offer that includes the 3 items I listed above.
