I bought this for my 2nd grade son. Half way into the school year I felt he was behind and then the fundamental test at school confirmed it. I bought this to help him learn his facts and catch up to where he should be. The workbook is great, as are the manipulitives that come with it. It starts with flash cards and an audio cd that go together, then on to review pages. It comes with a transparency and write erase pen so that is great as we can use it again and again. There is also a sticker chart and stickers. I made extra encentives for my son to help him reach his goals. He started out really strong with the math section, but it was adding one's and two's which he already knew. Then on to the three's and four's and it slowed up, so he is repeating that section until he knows it by heart. You can only work as fast as they can memorize. My only complaint is that this program is just basics, which he needs to know, but we are in Texas and these tests that the pulic school take are all word problems. And so far, none of that in Hooked on Math. Looks like there might be some in the more complicated addition and subtraction. But nothing compared to what he needs for the standardized tests. Overall, we both love it. He is excited about working toward a goal and I am having an easier time helping him learn his facts. Great deal for the money, just order here and don't bother shopping around. You won't find it cheaper.
