We are using it right now. Kids really like it.

Is it really K-12? One of my concerns is if it is easy enough for Math hating parents to navigate

Well...I am not a fan of math and so far so good

We are only on book one, but it looks pretty complete. (I have the whole set.) Honestly, for the price, even if I need to suppliment eventually, it was worth it for what they are getting out of it now.

I have MUS (first 3) and have never even used them because the kids like Ray's.

I agree about the price. Sorry but another question- you got it on CD right? How has that been?

No. I bought the hard covers.

I am really irresponsible with DVD's and CD's : So I figured hard cover books were the way to go.

I got mine (and McGuffy Readers) from www.keepersofthefaith.com

That's actually not all that more in price!

Do you copy worksheets or do they work out of the book?

We do a LOT of mental math. Otherwise we use little white boards with dry markers, slate with chalk, or they write it out of paper.

That way we only need one set of books
