I think this is a great product for a great price. My 14 year old bug is and will enjoy using No-Nonsense Algebra. She likes that the lessons are short and each one of the lessons focuses on one concept with review.
In addition to the No-Nonsense Algebra program, Math Essentials gave each of us crew members an additional Master Essential Math Skills Book. I received the Geometry book. This is a supplement to be used with a full curriculum. It is a good book for more practice and review of Geometry.
The Geometry supplement retails for $11.95.
Disclaimer: As a member of the TOS crew, I received these two books free for my honest opinion and this reveiw.
