Like the earlier Book 1 Basic Survival Skills, Book 2 includes informal assessments to help identify what math skills a learner has and what needs to be taught with meticulous step-by-step instructions for games and hands-on activities. It covers multiplication, division, fractions, more advanced money skills and more information on measurement and time.
Horstmeier clearly explains each lesson: what you are trying to teach, how to teach it, what materials you need and how to measure your success. --Down Syndrome News, Volume 31, #7

Plus there's A LOT of stuff from the first book in this one. So much so that I really hardly look at this book.
So it's a tough rating. The content is good, but it just doesn't hit the sweet spot the first book does. And it never touches on reading graphs which is a pretty common real-life skill.
Lastly, the Appendix isn't as orderly as the first volume. You have to hunt for stuff whereas is Vol 1 they provide actual page numbers for appendix materials. That's not a deal-breaker mind you, but it can be a drag when you're trying to get stuff together before the busses come and you can't find your page quickly.
To sum up... the first book is terrific and a must-own. The second book, in isolation, is very good. But it is not an essential companion to the 1st. But for under $20 it's not like you're going to lose sleep over it.
I'd love to see a 3rd volume that deals with reading bus schedules, graphs, mentally adding items in your head after rounding to the next-highest dollar, figuring out if "2 cereals for $10" is actually a good deal, etc.
