Course reviews

It's been a week since my purchase and I am absolutely thrilled with your material. The word problems are fantastic. I used some of your compound inequality word problems in class and presented them on the whiteboard.
I showed the content with the other two eighth grade math teachers and each of them in turn purchased your materials. What a great bargain!!! Thanks again for your hard work. Everything is organized beautifully.
I just spent 3 hours doing Unit 5 Lessons 1 & 2 because that is what I am learning at school this week, and cannot believe my progress. I so wish I would have found your course sooner. It is amazing.
You explain everything in such clarity it's like night and day. Thank you so much for getting me started. I am so happy you can't believe it. You are the best instructor ever!
Thanks again.
