I have used the Saxon approach in the past and I loved it. The students wre very successful and LD students case workers also noticed 2 and 3 year gains by their students. The spiraling affect of constant repitition is exactly what anyone learning a new topic needs. The student has to do the same type of problems over and over and then all of a sudden the light bulb goes off and they don't forget how to do these problems again. Teachers who have had my students after doing Saxon say they can't believe how better prepared the students are than those who don't use Saxon. If any questions, feel free to ask.
