Algebra 2 mercifully begins with 20 lessons or so reviewing things that should have been learned in Algebra 1. The key is to labor diligently every day: do every problem, check the answers every day, and rework any questions that are missed.
The greatest advantage of Saxon Math is that each lesson provides practice not only for the new problems but also built-in review for every kind of problem the student has previously encountered. Algebra 2 is no exception to the rule that Saxon Math texts help students learn math well.
In general, Saxon Math, including Algebra 2, is highly recommended. It is especially ideal for homeschooling families, although Algebra 2 is the first book in the series that homeschooling parents may not be able to offer enough help with. Also, students should be prepared to spend more time during their Homework lessons in Algebra 2 than in Algebra 1.
Math is like a sport. If you just learned to shoot a basketball through a hoop, trying it twice isn't enough. This is how Saxon presents the material.
Saxon is good for elementary school, but after 6th grade it tends to lead kids to math anxiety because of the lack of practice.
Home schoolers have a momentum of using these texts and they should ask the opinion of professionals (high school and college professors) regarding their use.
Edit: The criticism I've received has been from home schoolers. I am a credentialed secondary math teacher. My opinion of Saxon has been the same for decades, and until it changes I stand by what I've written in this review.
