In Reply to: Teaching Textbooks vs Saxon posted by ShannonMN on May 2, 2008 at 6:29 am:

My son used TT in gr 11 and then took Int Algebra at a Community College the following year and got an A in the class. So I feel like he learned everything he needed in TT. My other son uses Saxon Algebra I with the DIVE CD.Both of them are learning the same things.I don't think my son who used TT ever used the Solution CDs , but it is nice to know they are there if you have problems.The index in his College Intermediate Algebra book followed very closely with the index of TT and we would sometimes refer to the TT text to get a clearer explanation of something he wouldn't understand in the College text.TT has a more user friendly layout but Saxon resembles the crammed pages of a College textbook.I prefer the friendly layout of TT. I don't know how it could be accused of being less challenging.They all cover the same topics presented in a different format.I switched to TT because I thought it was nice to have a person teaching(audibly) and it added some variety
from just learning by reading a book.It incorporates more of the senses so it may help kids who learn differently then the normal textbook approach.
