BJUP's Algebra II is a very good 2nd year algebra text. We used it for all three of our children for 2nd year algebra. I rated it as very good rather than excellent (which I had rated BJUP's Algebra I text) because a couple of concepts in two lessons in this text were not particularly well explained, but that was only a couple of concepts for us in the whole book. We were easily able to use Cliff Notes and the internet to supplement those concepts.

While not as entertaining as some texts (ie Jacob) it is colorful, very thorough and presented in a logical manner with explanations for the math principles behind the math.

Comprehensive review is included at the end of every lesson (just not as much as Saxon, but more than enough for us). More importantly, like concepts are linked together and developed fully to build a strong foundation of understanding, and enough problems on new concepts are offered so that the student masters the concepts (requiring less continual review).

Full solutions for every problem are offered in the teacher manual (as is true with all BJUP high school level math courses). The teacher manual also offers some helpful teaching suggestions and additional information for each lesson making them essential to the program.

While the lessons are meant to be presented by the teacher, the student text supplies the bulk of the lesson material and explanations such that this could be a self-directed program for students who grasp math more easily.

This finishes out BJUP's algebra series, and would be equivalent to Portland Community College's Math 60, 65, and 90 series, which is their beginning and intermediate algebra (full 2 year high school algebra), and would prepare a student for PCC's Math 111, college algebra. If the fullest thread scope were used in this text (including the final 2 chapters on Probability and Analytic Geometry) a strong student would likely test out of PCC's Math 111 college algebra as well.
