A Very Enthusiastic Review, January 19, 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.
