  Best College Math Prep, Ever
Sincerelyornot, 7/1/2011
Saxon math seems to be a love-it or hate-it curriculum. Every lesson builds on the last one, so the student needs to grasp each concept in order to move on. This a) helps cement the material in your mind, and b) mimics testing conditions, where you have to remember a little bit of everything in order to pass. Both of these are important aspects of college math classes.

This book covers every single concept that I had in my first college math class. I only got halfway through Algebra 2, however, thinking that I didn't need to learn things twice. The joke was one me, and I wish I had worked harder to finish the book. The Saxon concepts I had learned were reinforced and built upon by the class: everything I skipped, took twice as long to learn for the class and were harder to remember during tests. Having gotten to that first step made half of the class quick and easy to get through.

I recommend that anyone taking college math, really, finsih this book first. Its hard to learn anything from the ground up, but when you're done, the foundation is invaluable.
