“Mastering Essential Math Skills” is an excellent book for home schooling or some extra work for 6 – 8 grade students. The Book contains an illustrated step-by-step “How to Use This Book” Section. It is organized by chapters with pre-tests and post-tests.
The great thing about this book is that it contains helpful hints and directions for parents and teachers on how to teach their children or students efficiently. Also it’s really great that all lessons are short and self-contained.
