Last year in our homeschool, we switched to "Mastering Essential Math Skills: Middle Grade/High School, and it was the best switch we could have made. Both girls were to the point of dreading math, and after changing to this program, they now looked forward to math class and could make sense of it because of the step-by-step instructions. Great for 7th-8th grades. Our 2nd daughter actually moved from 5th grade to 7th grade because this program was available.

I was using a different book with my grandson, who is in 8th grade. The purpose for us was not reviewing, but mastering and catching up to his grade level. It became obvious he was stuck and frustraded, the other book kept switching around between division, fractions, decimals, etc from page to page. So, I ordered this book that works on a set of math skills in a group. Mastering each set of skills until one is confident with that, then moving on to the next. This is exactly what he needed!

I loved the grade 6-8 edition of this book for reviewing math with my daughter. It is an excellent step by step approach to middle school math. This edition is the same book with very little added. It is not "high school" math. I wouldn't call it "Book Two". I was expecting something very different based on the title. Highly recommended for 6-7 grade math practice and review.

This book provides work sheets to improve in basic math skills. It not only helps children preparing for 6th or 7th grade but it also is a great guide to parents that wants to brush up on their fractions, percentages etc. It is basic and easy to understand. I recommend it highly.

There's nothing like having a personal tour guide to lead you through the jungle of math skills. Richard Fisher's 30 years of experience teaching math shines through in his Mastering Essential Math Skills Books 1 and 2, shedding light on the dark and daunting paths to the realm of math comprehension. Book One for Grades 4 and 5, takes us all the way from basic adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing to number theory and Algebra: effectively, concisely, and simply. I'm not a math expert but I would say both books will not only bring your student up to grade level (if they weren't there already) but, I dare say, will accelerate them. In the companion DVDs included with both books, Mr. Fisher's easy-going, encouraging manner walks us, at a comfortable pace, through the maze of math. A feature I consider ingenious is the built in speed drills on each one page lesson. It is so cleverly designed, it leaves one thinking, "why didn't I think of that?" Book Two is designated for Middle Grades and High school. It contains the same sequence of development but goes a little further into each skill giving students a more comprehensive understanding of the necessary skills to tackle Algebra I (coming soon). I plan to use Book One with my 14 year old as a review to begin with this fall before taking on Algebra second semester. After going through Mr. Fisher's Pre-Algebra Concepts book with DVD this year, my son has actually requested, nay, begged, to use Mr. Fisher's math curriculum for the remainder of his schooling! Need I say more?

I always believed that a little review, no matter your age, is good for you. This is "old enough"not to appear kid enough for really anyone to use this book. I do have one qualm though, the version I own has a few noticeable mistakes in it. One would think that they would take the time to make sure that the numbering of problems were in order. But that is the only real problem I see. I recommend giving the student/learner/you plenty of scratch paper. As there isn't really a lot of practice/workout room. My oops with this book is that I get wrapped up in doing the wheels. These wheels are multiplication/addition choose your number. I find these wheels to be lots of fun. I often find myself doing addition when I should be doing multiplication. But that's just cause I like multiplying more. I did find this book good for a person not in middle school. Practice is the same in all grades really 8-12. The more one reviews the old stuff; the easier it is to enjoy the new stuff. Unless you are like me, and hate studying the remedial math. I wish they had a workbook like this for pre-calculus through calculus on up for those trying to review on their own. This book can be a blast don't be worried about doing it perfectly. It is good review.

This book is helping me getting freshed up in math but it contains a few typo's. For example, on page 7 it says there are two #5 problems. There should be obviously one problem #5 and the other is problem #6. Nevertheless, it is a good math book. I just wished it gave more examples on how to actually DO some of the work.

This book seemed more geared toward elementary/middle school than middle school/high school. Anyone going into 9th grade might find this way too simple.
