If you use Saxon 8/7, we recommend Math 8/7, 3rd Edition. This edition of the Saxon Homeschool Kit features a lesson reference number next to each question to quickly re-learn forgotten concepts, larger developmentally appropriate sized text, as well as a solution manual with step-by-step solutions.
If you have the 2nd Edition all the required Saxon Math 8/7 books (textbook, answer key, solutions manual, tests, and worksheets), and the 2nd Edition of DIVE Math 8/7 it is acceptable to use. If you are missing any of the above, it is usually better to sell the 2nd edition books you have and purchase DIVE and Saxon Math 8/7, 3rd Edition.
